Diamond and Silk Keynote Address at 2019 40th Anniversary Celebrate Life Banquet

Diamond and Silk, social media stars, were keynote speakers at the PA Pro-Life Federation banquet in Harrisburg, PA. Maria V. Gallagher, Legislative Director, reported on their powerful speech about the sanctity of life of unborn babies.

Cable news commentators Diamond & Silk are known for their humorous take on the issues of the day.

But, before a massive crowd at the Celebrate Life Banquet in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the two sisters told the unvarnished truth about the tragedy of abortion.

“Can you imagine if Mommy had aborted us?” asked one sister to the other. Given the dynamic duo’s widespread popularity, it is apparent that a world without Diamond & Silk is unthinkable.”

The women, who are African-American, spoke frequently and forcefully about the impact of abortion on the black community. Indeed, African-American women have a disproportionate number of abortions—one of the nation’s most under-reported tragedies.

“Babies’ lives matter, too!” one of the sisters said to the crowd, which came to support the life-saving work of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation, an affiliate of National Right to Life.”

Diamond & Silk decried the move by states such as New York to pass radical laws allowing abortions up to the moment of birth and providing no protections for babies who manage to survive abortions. They also lamented California’s decision to provide free abortion pills to college students. The pair posed this poignant point: Why not provide medication for free for people to live, rather than supply lethal drugs to take innocent lives?

The banquet also included a salute to National Right to Life Director of Outreach Ernie Ohlhoff, who received the 2019 PA Pro-Life Lifetime Achievement Award. Ernie was an engineer who became involved in the pro-life movement in the early 1970s in the Poconos. He eventually became the first president of the board of directors of the Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation when it was established in 1979.
