Keynote Speaker: Rachel Guy

Rachel Guy has used the reality of her own story to advocate for the unborn. While in the womb, doctors gave a grim diagnosis to her parents who were encouraged to abort Rachel. Her parents chose life instead. Rachel was born at 1 lb. 2 oz. and became healthy during her five month stay in the NICU. She founded His Love and Care, a ministry that connects expectant mothers with pro-life OB/GYNs and physicians. To learn more about Rachel, visit her website.

Medical Expert: Dr. Monique Ruberu
