Life altering story shared at pro-life gala dinner

TV host shares her brokenness for Signal Hill
Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson speaks to the audience at Signal Hill's Focus on Life fundraiser gala dinner about her journey and the time she almost adopted twins to stop an abortion. Nathan Rumohr / The B.C. Catholic.
Recently I attended Signal Hill's Focus on Life fundraising gala dinner where keynote speaker Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, host of the Evangelical Christian TV program the 700 Club Canada, said she almost adopted twins to stop an abortion:
"I had been working with high-risk youth for five years and they have become my purpose and joy," she said. One of the girls in the program told Thompson about a friend who was set to have an abortion. Thompson asked why the girl was choosing abortion and learned it was because she was carrying twins. 
"I knew this would be a very tough situation for this girl," Thompson said. After thinking about the situation for two days, Thompson decided to do something radical to save the babies. "I texted this girl and told her I would adopt the twins. Maybe this is the one shot these babies have!"
