Hollywood star Patricia Heaton sparks Twitter furor with pro-life tweet
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.
