Actor Kirk Cameron will headline the Kansas City Pro-Life Event on October 21, sponsored by the Vitae Foundation.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kirk Cameron to Kansas City this year,” Vitae Foundation Kansas City Market Director Bill Francis stated. “We know Kirk will deliver an inspirational message that will motivate many of our supporters to act on their pro-life beliefs.”
Known by millions as “Mike Seaver” from Growing Pains, Cameron is now actively involved in Christian apologetics, encouraging Christians to make a difference in their communities and the culture at large. He continues to act in, and produce, family-focused films, television shows, and live events. In addition to “Lifemark” which is currently in theaters, the actor appeared in the 2008’s Fireproof. He also produces documentaries and TV series.
His newest talk show, Takeaways, airs weekly on TBN. Cameron was recently featured in the national media for his American Campfire Revival.
Earlier this year, Cameron spoke at the National March for LIfe in Washington. During his speech he shared how his wife Chelsea Noble was adopted after being “one doctor appointment away from not existing.” Had she been aborted, his two biological children would have never existed, and his four adopted children would not have a home he said.
“My six children and my wife are here as a result of loving, compassionate and courageous people like you who are marching today,” he said.
He has also talked extensively, often joined by other actors like Patricia Heaton, about how difficult it is to be pro-life in Hollywood. Actors are often blacklisted for their beliefs.
Vitae Foundation’s pro-life banquet is being held at the Overland Park Sheraton Hotel. The dinner event begins at 7 PM. Registration is $100 ($60 tax deductible), and reservations can be made online at vitaefoundation.org/events or by calling 573-634-4316.
All proceeds benefit Vitae Foundation whose mission is to connect abortion-determined women with lifesaving pregnancy help and ultimately to change the culture.
The organization has similar banquets, featuring high-profile individuals, across the nation.
