MyPillow Founder and CEO Mike Lindell will emcee Hosea Initiative’s first “Life is Beautiful Gala,” the pro-life organization has announced.
Headlined by Lindell, the gala will present an award named in honor of the late Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson, a former pro-abortion activist who became a pro-life advisor to President Ronald Reagan, Hosea Initiative explains in a press release detailing the event:
“Hosea Initiative will host the first Life is Beautiful Gala at the historic Andrew W. Mellon Building in Washington, DC, on the evening of Sunday, December 8th, 2019, presenting the 2019 Bernard N. Nathanson, MD, ‘Courageous Witness for Life’ Award.
“Mike Lindell, founder and CEO of My Pillow and pro-life advocate, will emcee the Gala.”
“Dr. Nathanson’s compelling pro-life conversion story from America’s ‘Abortion King’ and founder of NARAL to becoming a courageous pro-life warrior should be known by all Americans and is an icon for the change of heart needed in America on the issue of abortion. As a pro-life Advisor to President Ronald Reagan and the Health and Human Services Department, Dr. Nathanson wanted all Americans to understand how destructive abortion is for the baby and for the family.”
“Proclaiming the end to Margaret Sanger’s dominance of our culture,” the “Courageous Witness for Life” award is a response to Planned Parenthood’s annual Margaret Sanger Award, Hosea Initiative says.
Emcee Lindell, who overcame drug addiction to build his multi-million dollar MyPillow sleep product business, is actively involved in faith-based efforts to help others, the Gala website explains:
“Mike also established the Lindell Foundation, a faith-based organization focused on helping individuals with addictions, work issues, spousal conflict, health crises, and assisting veterans facing challenges after service to our country.”
As CNSNews.com reported, Lindell helped fund the pro-life film “Unplanned,” which debuted in theaters earlier this year:
“Lindell invested one million dollars in “Unplanned,” a six million dollar film billed as “one woman’s journey of transformation” from one of the nation’s youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors into one of the country’s most outspoken pro-life advocates.
“The actress portraying the film’s subject, Abby Johnson, was almost a victim of abortion, The Hollywood Reporter explains, noting the movie’s ties to other pro-life films, such as ‘God’s Not Dead.’”
