03/03/04

Internationally acclaimed model, actress and artist Jennifer O'Neill is speaking about the effects of abortion and its societal ramifications on women on Monday, March 15, at 7:00 p.m. in the Schiff Family Conference Center. The event is co-sponsored by Xavier University's students for life club and student government association, as well as by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and Greater Cincinnati's Right to Live.

For the past five years, O'Neill has traveled across the country sharing her story about her conversion to faith while dealing with the aftermath of her decision to have an abortion. Featured in Feminists for Life's publication The American Feminist, O'Neill is dedicated to conveying a pro-woman, pro-life message. In spring 2003, she was awarded the "Proudly Pro-Life Award" at the National Right to Life convention in recognition of her genuine message about the negative impact abortion has on women.

The event is open to the public. Students are admitted free, and all other guests are asked to contribute a $5 donation at the door.
