Auburn University Homecoming Queen Opens Up About Her Abortion Story

From Black Voices 

22-year-old Molly Anne Dutton was crowned Auburn University’s 100th homecoming queen this past Saturday but that’s just part of what makes her story headline worthy.

Dutton’s biological mother was a victim of a sexual assault, resulting in pregnancy. A married woman at the time, her husband gave her an ultimatum: abort the baby or face a divorce.

Dutton’s mother chose to move from California to Alabama to carry the baby to term and placed her baby girl up for adoption with the help of Lifeline’s Children Services, a Christian adoption agency in Birmingham.

Now, 22 years later, Dutton is sharing the difficult circumstances of how she was brought into the world with the goal of raising awareness and providing information about options available to women during “crisis pregnancies.” Her campaign is called “Light up LIFE” and in addition to YouTube videos and speaking on campus, she’s raising money for the Christian adoption agency that placed her with a family by selling t-shirts on campus.
