AUBURN, AL, October 15, 2013 ( – Molly Ann Dutton is Auburn University's 100th homecoming queen, but she nearly became a different kind of statistic. Twenty-two years ago, she could have become one of the 2,739 children aborted every day in the United States.

When her father found out that her biological mother had become pregnant, he demanded she abort their child. Instead, the mother chose life.


Turning to Lifeline Children's Services in Birmingham, she found support and the help she needed to carry her baby girl to term.

The Christian service placed the child with an adoptive family. Now, Molly Ann Dutton is Miss Homecoming at the famous Alabama university.

“Because that resource was made available to my mother, she decided to give birth to me, and here I am talking to you guys 22 years later,” Dutton said.

She now wants to let others know that “unwanted” children can accomplish great things – and no woman has to face a stressful pregnancy alone.

“If I could accomplish one thing, it would be – if you ever find yourself in a situation or have a sister or a cousin or a best friend that is in trouble – that there are resources there,” she said.

Lifeline's annual fundraiser will take place in Birmingham on November 7.
