Syndicated columnist Star Parker appeared at the Students for Life of America (SFLA) conference in Bethesda, Md., Saturday and delivered a rousing speech on “Standing in the Face of Adversity.” Parker admits in her autobiography that she had several abortions before finding God and becoming a powerful pro-life advocate. She’s come a long way, baby!

The speech was lauded as “amazing” and “an inspiration.”

Some Twitter users live-tweeted Parker’s SFLA speech to 2,000 student activists from around the country.

"Every time we help women at crisis pregnancies centers we are the Harriet Tubmen  of today." #starparker

Videos of the conference speeches will be available on the SFLA website.
