Ryan Bomberger: ‘As an Adoptee and Adoptive Father, My Family Wouldn’t Exist if Pro-Abortion Activists Had Their Way’
January 3, 2022
January is Sanctity of Human Life Month, and this year marks the 37th anniversary of President Ronald Reagan’s proclamation designating the third Sunday in January as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. President Reagan chose this date— the 11th anniversary of Roe v. Wade—as it brought a reminder of the gift of life and the importance of fighting for the right to life.
Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance, www.theradiancefoundation.org), has a lot to say about abortion. A firm believer that all life—at any age or stage—has purpose, Bomberger and The Radiance Foundation use creative ad campaigns, billboards, striking journalism, and other methods to fight for the rights of the unborn.
Bomberger commented, “Today, the pro-life movement continues to fight the misconceptions of a broken worldview that declares the most vulnerable among us—the unborn—are not equal. Pro-abortion activists continue to celebrate the killing of millions of innocent human lives and slap a ‘reproductive freedom’ label on it. This form of fake feminism is led by a $2 billion bully that claims to ‘plan parenthood.’ They don’t plan parenthood; they violently end it. The radically pro-abortion Left wants to expand this violence by forcing taxpayers to fully fund this injustice. They’re also trying to strip all conscience protections from medical professionals who object to the fake health of abortion. Pro-life Americans won’t let this happen.
“As an adoptee and adoptive father, my family wouldn’t exist if these pro-abortion activists had their way. I was conceived in rape but adopted in love. Nine of my other twelve siblings were adopted out of poverty, neglect or abuse. My godbrothers and godsisters have Down Syndrome. Our lives are the kind that extreme positions on abortion target with death. None of us would’ve been better off dead. We’re better off loved.
Bomberger continued, “Many may feel alone in their stand for life, especially on college and high school campuses, in their workplaces or even at church. But know this—courage doesn’t need a crowd. It just needs a conscience. And that compassionate strength changes everything. It makes people like me, and my family, possible. My life has a purpose! Your life has a purpose! And when we choose to be stronger than our circumstances, we enable millions of others to live out their God-given purpose too. The Radiance Foundation will continue to work with other pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty organizations, to boldly speak truth and love to counter a culture of confusion and death.”
Over the next few weeks, Christians and churches of all denominations across the country will observe the sanctity of human life month with celebration of life and prayer events including the annual National March For Life, which will be on January 21 in Washington D.C. These events lead up to the Sanctity Human Life Day, which will be recognized this year on January 22, 2022.
The Radiance Foundation is a faith-based, educational, life-affirming 501c3 nonprofit organization. Through creative ad campaigns, powerful multimedia talks, factivist journalism, and compassionate community outreaches, The Radiance Foundation affirms that every human life has God-given purpose. Radiance has led congressional briefings and summits on Capitol Hill on abortion, adoption, and racism, as well as spoken to thousands of students on campuses around the world including Harvard, Trinity College, Princeton University, University of Notre Dame, Mizzou, Columbia Law School, Penn State University, Eureka College, and Arizona State University, among others.
