Rebecca Kiessling is a family law attorney, homeschool mom of 5, and an international pro-life speaker. Rebecca was adopted nearly from birth. At the age of 18, she discovered that her conception was result of a brutal rape. After meeting her biological mother, Rebecca learned that she was nearly aborted and that her mother had visited two back-alley abortionists before backing out. She says, “The fact that I’m alive today has to do with choices that were made by our society at large, people who fought to ensure abortion was illegal in Michigan at the time -- even in cases of rape, people who argued to protect my life, and people who voted pro-life. I wasn’t lucky. I was protected.” Rebecca is the author of Heritage House pamphlet “Conceived in Rape: A Story of Hope” and the abortion essay “The Right of the Unborn Child Not to be Unjustly Killed—a philosophy of rights approach.” Rebecca serves as a national spokeswoman for Personhood USA.
