About Darlene

dp-highres-02Iwas conceived by rape, grew up feeling worth less than others and was a target of human trafficking at 13, sold into prostitution on my 14th birthday, faked an abortion to get free from the man holding me. I pledged my life to God and married a wonderful man, raised five great children and now have two grandchildren.

I am so passionate about the value of every life; whether one is conceived with wine and roses, in a test tube or as a result of violence. I absolutly reject the utilitarian view that people are valuable only if they can contribute to society in arbitrarily contrived ways. We should all hold to the Declaration of Independence’s admonition that each of us is endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights: the right to life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. These God given rights are consecutive, not concurrent. Without the right to life, nothing else matters.

I have been a practicing nurse for 26 years and worked in ProLife ministry for more than 22 years. I’ve spoken in many venues, including the NH Legislature, public events, radio and TV interviews, schools, churches, youth groups and other groups around New England and the nation. For a few years, I served as a Trustee and as President of NH RTL . I’m currently on the Political Action Committee.

By God’s grace I share my story by serving with Savethe1 .

I share stories and encouragement, Healing from Child Sexual Abuse, and Human Trafficking, as well as ProLife Apologetics in my blog. Sometimes thought provoking, sometimes comforting, I share my heart. The heart of a woman transformed by God’s grace.
