Jane Russell RIP

Did you know Hollywood actress Jane Russell, (pictured here in her most famous role as Mantilla the Hon) who died this week, was a deeply Christian woman who was active in the pro life cause? This post highlights her views, pointing out that the obit calls for donations to a prominent pro life charity in lieu of flowers. She had a backstreet abortion as a teenager and was rendered sterile as a result. She adopted three kids and founded two adoption charities and lobbied for the promotion of adoption as a positive option.

Of course the mainstream media somehow overlooked all that, not to mention the fact that she was a darned good actress and decent person. Instead they focused on her ‘sultry bombshell’ image.

    I listen to the United Christian Broadcast radio and they did mention her goodness on their news program. I like their news, it's often 'good' news.God rest her soul.

    "sad that she had to suffer abortion to come to God"Sometimes it takes a big sin for someone to see the need to truly repent.

    I didn't know that she was pro life; I just remember my mom wouldn't let me go to see the 'Outlaw'; I believe it was on the 'Legion of Decencys' Condemned list. Old times. :)
