Actress Shari Rigby, who starred in the movie, October Baby, will speak about her abortion and its profound effects on her life at the 36th Annual Foundation for Life Banquet & Auction, to benefit the Maternal Assistance Program.
The event will be held at the Marriott Town Square Hotel in Sugar Land on Saturday, November 10. Rigby, the headline speaker, will be joined by Melissa Ohden, an abortion survivor and pro-life speaker.
