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.

Mallory Millet, eyewitness to the founding of radical feminism and long-time Board of Director for the David Horowitz Freedom Center, will be our keynote speaker.

U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (ND) will serve as Honorary Chairman.

Gala Theme:

“Raise up your voice like a trumpet”’ (Isaiah:58:1) …in declaring the beauty of God’s gift of LIFE!

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. He also gave me his powerful message about “Stop the killing” to be delivered across our country for such a time as this – infanticide, euthanasia and now the pro-aborts demand tax-funded abortion.

We would appreciate your donation.

On December 1, 2009, in New York City, he passed his pro-life mantle onto me with instructions to teach America the 8-propaganda points he used to deceive our country with the lie that “abortion is healthcare” and to deliver his parting message of remorse: Tell America that the cofounder of NARAL says to: ‘Love one another. Abortion is not love. Stop the killing. The world needs more love. I’m all about love now.’ After the advent of real-time ultrasound, Dr. Nathanson became a witness for life whose legacy sets an example of courage…of standing up for the least of these….of standing for beauty, goodness and truth.  

Hosea Initiative is proclaiming the end to Margaret Sanger’s dominance of our culture by juxtaposing this award to Planned Parenthood’s Annual Margaret Sanger award .. Hosea Initiative’s “Courageous Witness for Life Award” inaugurates a new century dominated by truth and a culture of life ethic that Dr. Nathanson tried valiantly to restore.  

December 8th also commemorates Dr. Nathanson’s baptism into the love and mercy of Jesus Christ – a most perfect day for the Life is Beautiful Gala.
