Tom McFeely of the National Catholic Register blogged about supermodel Kathy Ireland’s changed view from pro-choice to pro-life. Citing a recent interview on Mike Huckabee’s television show, McFeely quotes Ireland as saying:
From the moment of conception a new life comes into being, the DNA, the genetic blueprint is there, the sex is determined, the blood type is determined, the unique set of fingerprints is there. …
The bottom line is, I really believe if the unborn is not a human being, have as many abortions as you want, whenever you want, no justification is necessary. If on the other hand, the unborn is a human being, no justification is adequate unless another human life is at risk, that being the mother’s. …We need to put this in the hands of science. Even if you don’t share our faith, an atheist can know it’s wrong to take an innocent human life.
Ireland’s switch from pro-abortion to pro-life may have been prompted from the medical insight she got from her physician husband.
It appears that Miss USA runner-up Carrie Prejean isn’t alone in her stance for life in the modeling world.
