May 23, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) - Hollywood celebrity and pro-life advocate Patricia Heaton tweeted her support of a pro-life pregnancy center earlier this month.

Heaton linked to a tweet from EWTN host and pro-life advocate Gloria Purvis, which showed a video highlighting the work of a Washington, D.C. pregnancy center and maternity home.

Heaton pointed critical abortion supporters to Feminists for Nonviolent Choices, which advocates for more maternal leave and other policies to encourage mothers to choose life:

Other abortion advocates on twitter accused Heaton of “repressing women” and called her pro-life stance “sickening.”

But pro-lifers rushed to Heaton’s defense and thanked the Everybody Loves Raymond and The Middle actress for her support of the unborn.

The video Heaton tweeted in support of can be viewed below:

Heaton is a rare pro-life voice in Hollywood.  She has previously called attention to Planned Parenthood’s baby parts for profit scandal and stated her support of the Little Sisters of the Poor.
