Spring has arrived, and the fourth annual Bowties for Babies: A Southern Style Soiree Benefiting Life is getting closer! Have you registered yet?

The event is May 10, 2016, from 7-10 p.m. at the Capitol Park Museum in Baton Rouge. It will include live jazz music, good food, a silent auction, and a special presentation to a former legislator and longtime pro-life leader. 
Sharon Weston Broome
Sharon Weston Broome, who served 24 years in the Louisiana Legislature, will receive Louisiana Right to Life's inaugural Leadership for Life Award. This award will be given yearly to a Louisiana citizen with an exemplary record of protecting mothers and their unborn babies.

Broome served in the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1992 to 2004, and from 2004 to 2016 she served in the Louisiana Senate. From 2008-2016, when she was term limited, she was President Pro Tempore of the Senate, a leadership position she also held in the House as Speaker Pro Tempore.

As a pro-life leader, she: 
  • Was prime sponsor of the 1995 Women's Right to Know Bill.
  • Authored two pro-life bills, the 2010 Ultrasound Before Abortion Act and the 2012 Hear the Heartbeat Act, as a senator.
  • Was a tireless advocate for Louisiana's Abortion Alternative Funding Initiative, which provides pregnancy resource centers with federal funds to help serve women and children in Louisiana.
  • Donated time to educating students on pro-life issues, speaking multiple times at Louisiana Right to Life's Camp Joshua.
Will you join Louisiana Right to Life, Lt. Gov. and Mrs. Billy (Cher) Nungesser (Bowties chair couple), Sen. Broome and other pro-life leaders at this special event? All proceeds go to our Advertise for Life project, and with your help we can continue using targeted online advertising to reach women in crisis pregnancies and connect them to a pregnancy resource center near them.
