Because she chose life ... Leo Tolstoy gave the world War and Peace and Anna Karenina.
Because she chose life ... Gerald Ford helped guide the nation through political chaos and trauma.
Because she chose life ... Wendy’s founder Dave Thomas used a portion of his fortune to help other families realize their dreams of adopting children.
Because she chose life ... Faith Hill shared her soaring voice that has inspired many to look up and outside of themselves.
Because she chose life ... Nelson Mandela made major strides toward racial reconciliation in South Africa.
Because she chose life ... Nancy Reagan helped influence the future 40th president of the United States.

Since that cold January day nearly 50 million children haven’t been given the same chance that all these beloved individuals were given.
