Illinois Right to Life held its 49th Annual Banquet this past April 20 in Glen Ellyn, at which I offered the prayers before and after dinner. The Illinois Right to Life’s honoree as its Pro-Life Person of the Year and keynote speaker at the banquet was Rep. Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee. She is regarded as a bi-partisan leader, a champion of reform, and an outspoken advocate for the unborn. Rep. Blackburn has been honored by the Family Research Council, has been given a 100 percent rating for her pro-life voting record by National Right to Life, and has been presented with the Distinguished Leader Award from the Susan B. Anthony List for her pro-life and pro-family work. In 2016, she was selected by Speaker Paul Ryan to be the Chair of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, a year-long investigation into the abortion industry’s buying and selling of aborted children.
