Sophia Lebano: [00:00:27] Hello, everybody. What’s up. Welcome back to Hear and Now Podcast. I’m super, super excited for today’s episode. I have Alison Centofante today from Live Action organization. Alison, welcome to the show.
Alison Centofante: Thank you so much for having me. I’m excited to be here.
Sophia Lebano:Yeah. So honestly, let’s just dive right in.
[00:00:47] Why don’t you tell everybody about yourself and give a little introduction.
[00:00:51] Alison Centofante: [00:00:51] Sure. So my name is Alison Centofante . I work for Live Action. Live Action is a human rights organization, just online actually focusing the pro life movement. So we are working to educate on abortion. On the industry. We’re really working to change – We’re seeing minds changed on abortion every day and lives being saved. So it’s very cool work. It is growing in a big way and I love answering hard questions about this. I know for many, it’s a hard, hostile topic. It’s always a, you know, in political discussion and it’s just a privilege to get to advocate for, for truth.
[00:01:32] And I think for little ones who don’t necessarily have advocates all the time. So I am married of four years, I have a little baby she’s just about to be a year old. And so I’m in that whole new mom working full time thing and just just a daughter, a friend, a Christian, someone that’s looking to help make a difference in the world.
Sophia Lebano: So what is your role with live action?
Alison Centofante: So I’m director of external affairs here, which kind of captures a lot of things. I do a lot of communication, public relations, helping with our event planning and our gov relations. We have an office in DC that office and people spread out across the country. We are a really neat mobile, you know, tight non-profit that’s working to, you know, get the best people on the team here that care about life. Are persuasive and innovative and creative in the way they do it. And I’ve just been able to, at times, help represent live action. We have an amazing founder and president Lila Rose, Sophia.
[00:02:35] We should talk about her story, your listeners who are maybe younger Laila started by the action when she was just like 15 years old and then it grew and she went to college and essentially, you know, in college in California, she realized, you know, What’s going on? There’s like a lot of things happening, but there’s no babies, there’s no pregnancy.
[00:02:57] So she went into her campus health center and asked, Hey, you know, I’m a student. And what if I was pregnant and essentially was told, we will do nothing to take care of that baby, except help you get an abortion. We do not take care of pregnant students. And she was pretty shocked by that. And so she started thinking, well, maybe that’s like an outlier, maybe.
[00:03:19] I just got a weird employee and she started going to other abortion facilities, health clinics, planned Parenthood and documenting conversations and kind of exposing how callous a lot of these employees are to young girls and maybe unplanned pregnancy is how abortion seems to be their only answer.
[00:03:38] And there really wasn’t support for women. So part of what we’re doing at live action, and she’s built out a team to expose that industry that makes money from those conversations, you know, pushing girls towards abortion because they make money from that. They don’t make money if you choose life. But also building out a team at live action who’s ready to help you know, to help and say, Hey, if you are in an unplanned pregnancy, here’s some resources, here’s what you need to know.
[00:04:04] And we get those stories all the time and are able to help girls through that, you know, next season of life.
[00:04:10] Sophia Lebano: [00:04:10] That is so, so amazing. I mean, I was telling you, this is the first time that I’m really outwardly speaking about this and I, I really do have such a strong stance for pro-life that every life matters.
[00:04:22] And I, I love that it really is just at the core of who you guys are. So let’s dive into the hard questions. How can we go about taking action for pro-life matters?
[00:04:33]Alison Centofante: [00:04:33] I think education is first, you know, people now who are listening, who are like, I don’t know what I am maybe I’ll turn it out. I’m not sure if I’m probably for abortion for choice or what.
[00:04:44] I just really encourage you to know what you’re talking about. When we go at Live Action and ask people, do you consider yourself pro-life pro-choice or neither they’ll often say, Oh, I’m pro-choice definitely. And then we’ll say, okay, can you take three minutes and wants this video? And tell me your thoughts and what we’ve done is we’ve-we’ve got a former abortionist who will talk about the procedure in a medical way and shows it in a medical animation and Sophia, I’m going to be honest. I’ve shown this video in times square and I’ve been petrified. I thought people are going to freak out. They’re going to, they’re gonna punch the iPad and punch me.
[00:05:25] Like, no, that’s not happened. People watch this three-minute video and it’s not gory. It’s just a medical animation of the abortion procedure and they can’t look away. And I always pause when they take the headphones off just to see what their first reaction is, and they’ll say I had no idea. I never thought about it. So I think the first step is education because we have these national conversations about abortion and people can’t even describe what it is.
[00:06:35] That’s a problem. And that includes leaders. That includes politicians. They don’t know, and haven’t been given the opportunity really to be shown. So I encourage you and others people listening, go to anyonecanchange.org. go to abortionprocedures.com and pick up these videos in less than 10 minutes.
[00:06:58] You’ll see. And then you decide for yourself, if that is a way that we should treat the most innocent among us. If that is the way we should treat a child, what we were, right. You and me and every single one of us that’s and you know, right now in society, girls, your age and my age were being told that women’s empowerment is dismembering your child and killing your child and making sure you have access to abortion.
[00:07:25] Right. But isn’t pitting yourself against the most vulnerable, innocent demographic. Isn’t that oppression? aren’t we oppressing that little baby isn’t why are we, as women told that we have to kill our children in order to succeed in society. It’s cool. It’s sick. It’s wrong. And I think there are, and I see a whole generation of people speaking up and saying, no.
[00:07:54] No more, no more no more do we get to do this, no more abortion. For any reason, if taxpayer funded. There is no good reason for abortion. And, and that’s what live action is working. we are working to end it and eliminate it.
[00:08:07] Sophia Lebano: [00:08:07] Honestly, just love what you guys are doing. And I have seen those videos that you’re talking about, and honestly, you know, I’m pro-life too, but just seeing those things, it just makes you believe in it even more that it just makes you take even more of a stand.
[00:08:22] And I would love to see those reactions of people who are seeing that for the first time. I mean, I’m sure it’s very shocking, but at the same time, you’re just like, wow. I, I just had no idea. Yeah. With your platform being on social media, have you guys experienced any sort of censorship?
[00:08:39] Alison Centofante: [00:08:39] Yeah.
[00:08:39] Good question. We have. So while you can go on YouTube and watch our videos while they’re still up, but those reaction videos are there. If you go on YouTube, go to live action film, you’ll see us showing people of all different ages in like San Francisco, New York, Chicago, these videos. And you’ll see the reactions is really powerful.
[00:08:57] That’s on our live action page and. As far as oppression, it’s really been an issue for us. You know, we, because of our model, we’re a digital leader. We are a digital leader. We play by the rules, you know, we have to in order to continue to grow, but even playing within the rules of Facebook, Pinterest, Tik-Tok, Twitter – we’ve been engaged with ongoing battles. Right now.
[00:09:22] Our president and founder, Lila Rose. I mentioned. And our organization live action are both banned from advertising on Twitter so we can post, but we can’t put any money behind it in the same way that planned Parenthood does on the pro-abortion side. When we asked what or why that was, we have an email documentation, they said because you show ultrasound and you talk about defunding planned Parenthood.
[00:09:47] That’s why we cannot advertise it because we talk about defunding the nation’s largest abortion provider. So to me, and to anyone that’s logical, that is clear bias, it’s unfair. It’s a double standard for pro-lifers versus pro-abortion folks. Tik Tok tried to kick us off and just erase our account.
[00:10:06] We fought that pretty hard and got some amazing help to, you know, just even members of Congress will step up big leaders online. They say Hey, they’re the biggest pro-life organization. What are you doing? Literally, we’re just making funny videos, as funny as we can be to just point out how illogical these conversations are.
[00:10:24] It’s, you know, they’re cute. They’re videos. Pinterest labeled us as pornography, which is incredibly bizarre, Pinterest labeled Live Action’s account as pornography on a blacklist, which means no one could link to liveaction.org because they had live action.org on this pornography. And when a whistleblower, a brave, brave young man named Eric Coffin, he worked at Pinterest.
[00:10:51] He contacted us and others and said, Hey guys, This is a problem. He was swiftly fired for that. They didn’t fix it. We got this one wrong. They doubled down and they said, keep Live Action on the porn list. And Eric you’re fired. Eric has since gotten a job in the movement, which is great. But these are the kinds of things that we’re seeing all the time.
[00:11:15] And so if you want to be rebellious, if you want to be woke, then go find out what you’re not being exposed to. You know, we’ve on Facebook had videos of a, you know, I think it was a 20 week old baby on life support. And we’ve said, Hey, this baby on life support can be killed legally in the womb at the same age.
[00:11:40] So we were trying to point out, you got a 20 week old baby on my support or 20 week old baby killed in the womb, the same baby at same age, same features. And Facebook has blocked it now. And they said, Oh, you can’t show surgery, which is it. Wasn’t showing surgery. So thankfully, Sophia, we’ve been able to push back when we, we email all of our contacts because we’re the biggest, I think we get the attention. Right. But it’s hugely problematic. I think the pro-life movement gets really upset because they are like, look, if you can block live action, they can block me, you know? So we’re going to keep the pressure on and we keep growing because we have the best content, the best message. But it’s not been easy.
[00:12:25] They haven’t made it easy for us. To continue to share the truth. So really, if you want to be woke, if you want to be educated, go find out what they’re not being, exposing you to. The algorithms might not show you our stuff — planned Parenthood will be promoted to you, but we can’t get access to you. So make sure that you all, all listeners.
[00:12:44] And I’m not saying you, Sophia, here, because like you said, you’re pro-life, but you know, we all have to make sure that we’re getting both sides of the story and we’re questioning why they’re not letting us see simply what an abortion is or what the abortion industry does.
[00:12:56] Sophia Lebano: [00:12:56] As somebody who follows for Catholic accounts and, you know, pro-life accounts, I don’t see your stuff at all.
[00:13:03] I have to go actively search it out and that’s like, it’s disheartening cause you know, if you’re, you’re promoting things that are faith-based, you’re going to get blocked and you’re going to get blacklisted, like you said. So I feel so sad that that’s kind of what the world has come to for censoring things that are the truth.
[00:13:21] And for big things like you guys, because they’re speaking hard shoes, but it’s twos that need to be heard. So I commend you 100% for fighting back as hard as you have and what you will continue to do. And I know you guys have such a good audience kind of rallying around you that are honest, you know, that are fighting back with you.
[00:13:39] So what are some of the things that we need to know to begin advocating for pro-life?
Alison Centofante: So there’s a lot that can be done — locally and nationally. I think. locally, it’s important to know a few things. One, where your local abortion facilities are and to where your local pregnancy resource centers are. And here’s why.
[00:14:03] If you start getting involved in this, you’re going to start interacting and having these conversations. We need to be able to point people towards help. Now, the great thing is that there are more pregnancy resource centers than there are planned Parenthoods. There are amazing people, usually people of faith, that have stepped up rented buildings, gathered clothes, diapers, parenting resources, and ultrasound machines,
[00:14:25] Like really working so hard, they’ll rent out buses and vans to get people from the abortion facility, to their center, to get an ultrasound, to see that baby, to hear that heartbeat. We need to know where that is, so that when we either online or in person encounter women that may be considering abortion, we can get them the help that they need.
[00:14:44] And I also say it’s important to know where your local abortion facilities are because — I’ve been pro-life for a long time, Sophia, and I are actually didn’t engage in too much sidewalk advocacy, which is what we call just being present at the abortion facility and, you know, praying and having interactions and conversations.
[00:15:04] I just didn’t think that was my thing. You know, I thought out that’s for other people, but I was at a, at an event once and they took me into their local abortion facility and in pulls this car. A guy and a girl are in it, he’s driving. She gets out head down. She goes into the abortion facility and he’s, you know, he’s in distress.
[00:15:24] He’s like 25. And some of these sidewalk advocates just go over to the car. They’re like, the guys, are like, Hey man, what’s going on? And this kid is like, “Hey, you know, we just broke up, but she’s pregnant. I didn’t know where else to go.”
They’re like, all right. All right. Like let’s, let’s talk, let’s slow this down a little bit.
[00:15:43] Like. And the man, it was really cool. It’s just, we need strong men. The men just talk to him like, listen, like if she’s pregnant, if they confirm she’s pregnant, that’s, that’s your kid in there. That’s your kid. And this might be the only kid you ever got. And how are you feeling like you, you know, they just talked through that.
[00:16:08] And then when she came out, She was able to talk to some of the women there. And the women were like, some of them had their own stories of unplanned pregnancy and how scary it was, but they brought her on to this big, beautiful bus that they had checked out into, you know, mobile, like ultrasound unit. And they got her an ultrasound, which she wasn’t allowed to see in the abortion facility.
[00:16:29] They didn’t let her see it there. So she wanted to know to see, and, and she saw that beautiful little heartbeat and saw that there’s life happening and growing and was able to talk to a nurse about, you know, prenatal development and the fact that the heartbeat started at 21 days and detectable at six weeks.
[00:16:53] And—and here, you know, the resources and the support for her. And I’ll never forget, my heart was beating so fast if yet, because in that moment you’re like, This is life or death for this kid. Right. And it’s completely legal for her to go end the life of that child and he can’t do anything. I can’t do anything.
[00:17:16] And so I would say for anyone on the fence or, or, or even pro-life, and just kind of losing that zeal, go down to your abortion facility and just take some time to pray. And you may have a God appointment, where this interaction happens and you have a chance to speak truth and love. And my sister used to do this in New York city and she was so brave and she wrote these little letters that said “be brave sweet girl”.
[00:17:45] And it’s just to say, she handed them to say, Hey, please read this. And it said, be brave, sweet girl. We’re here for you, whatever you need, whatever you’re going through. You know, we want to pray for you and help provide for you. And we’re here for you. And just that, that little moment of love allowed girls to leave the abortion facility that is cold and dark and sterile.
[00:18:08] And often if you read the Yelp reviews, sketchy and focused on death, And turn around and leave and talk to someone focused on life, her life and that baby life and look, it doesn’t mean they had to get married or they had to stay together. Right? Like there’s a lot of solutions to that breakup, but it definitely didn’t mean that someone had to die because of it and that baby had to die.
[00:18:33] And then that girl had just forever mourn and remember her child in that way. So. Those are two big things, know where your resources are, know where the abortion facility is. And if you start losing that deal go because every day, life or death for people. And if you can think of one post-abortive woman, you know, that regrets it.
[00:18:54] Go do it for her. Keep her in mind because every day there’s more and more women walking that path that will forever regret it. Be saddened by it. Sometimes unable to have future children because of it. And so we don’t want that, right. We want healing. We want life.
Sophia Lebano: That’s such an awesome perspective. And I remember when I watched Unplanned, when it came out, and how there was just a whole new world that opened up for me that wanted me to kind of pursue that pro-life movement even more when you saw just the behind the scenes of it all. So did you guys see an influx of people start advocating after Unplanned came out specifically?
[00:19:36] Alison Centofante: [00:19:36] Yeah, Unplanned was great. Actually. Laila’s in unplanned. She has a little cameo. I don’t know. Did you catch it when you watched it?
[00:19:43] Sophia Lebano: [00:19:43] I don’t know that I did – Yeah. Tell us about it.
[00:19:47]Alison Centofante: [00:19:47] It was really quick. So we flew out to where they were recording and Lila plays the reporter outside of the abortion facility.
[00:19:55] And so y’all have to go watch it again and see if you can see her, but she plays a reporter and interviews. I think it was the abortion facility owner about the pro-lifers who were there saying, what do you think? Are they so scary? But we did — Unplanned was amazing in a sense that it allowed, I think a lot of people could see inside the industry for the first time and also to see what an abortion, particularly a first trimester abortion, is.
[00:20:20] I think it’s too easy to think. Oh, you know, second and third trimester abortions. Yeah. I’m again. So it’s like, eh, first trimester, maybe it’s not a big deal. You just take a pill and you know, then you’re not pregnant anymore. Well, Unplanned really ripped the veil off of that idea because it showed.
[00:20:38] Pretty accurately about the pain that comes when going through a first trimester abortion. And I’ve heard from many women, not just the actress in that, but many, many women who have gone through it and said, yep. That’s accurate. I thought I was going to die. It was so painful. What’s really dangerous is the abortion industry is moving in that direction of doing more and more and more first trimester abortion.
[00:21:28] It’s easier for them, right. They just hand out a pill. They don’t have to do the surgery. They make more money off it. They can do more first trimester abortions in a day. And as their facilities are shutting down, because thankfully we are shutting down physical facilities, the pro-the pro abortion movement, and the industry is heading on towards like online distribution of these pills.
[00:21:50] They’re figuring out ways to make it legal, to get these pills into the hands of people, without doctors, without the in-person visit. What’s really sick, Sophia, is during COVID. You industry used COVID as a kind of reason to get rid of that in-person visit for the first pill I talked to you about, but like you have to go in and get the first pill the industry said, no, no, no, it’s too dangerous.
[00:22:12] And they pleaded to the FDA to say, we don’t, we can’t don’t force them in to get that first visit in person. Well, one reason why that’s really dangerous is because now we don’t have an opportunity for her to be assessed. Her-her pregnancy could potentially — it could be ectopic, which means the egg has implanted outside of the year.
[00:22:36] If you have take the abortion pill and you have an ectopic pregnancy that could. Rupture and kill you that you don’t have a chance to get an ultrasound to see that. So there’s so many things the industry’s doing. That’s focused on money, not safety, not, you know, health and wellness. But Unplanned drew a lot of people in, I think, opened eyes for people to go, wow, is that true?
[00:22:57] You know, and we saw a lot of questions, a lot of people coming into the fold and saying, I want to get involved. I want to be a part of this movement. I want to see babies. That was great.
Sophia Lebano: That’s that’s incredible. And yeah, it really is just so sad to see how COVID has impacted that. And they’re using it.
[00:23:14] They’re almost being opportunists to kind of jump on that and kind of make it go their way. So can you speak about, you know, what in your mind would be the number one argument to combat those who are pro-abortion pro-choice.
Alison Centofante: Yeah. So I think it’s important to realize that most people don’t have the education that they, that we may have seen.
[00:23:37] Right. So I think it’s really easy to think. Okay. Everyone has their have taken their position and it’s really well thought out. And that’s not the case, right? Like a lot of people that we talk to and interview have never. Been told about the industry, told about the procedure. They’ve never questioned it.
[00:23:54] They kind of just bought in a woman can do whatever she went. So I think a really important argument to remember is that it’s a moment of conception. There is unique DNA. That is a human being with their own bodily rights. They are 100% human like you and I are. And I think it becomes really simple at that point.
[00:24:16] Do you have the rights to kill someone for their inconvenience your life? No. No, not at all. And so I think I always try and give people the benefit of the doubt. I, you know, I think there are some people in the pro-abortion side who are pretty evil and, you know, pretty hard set in their ways. They are pro-death, they are completely fine with killing someone.
[00:24:39] But I think the majority of people who consider themselves portrays are just confused. And so I think our goal should be to untie the braid for them, you know, to undo the confusion and ask a lot of questions, questions, like where would you draw the line on abortion? You know, are you, are you for abortion through all nine months?
[00:24:59] Oh, so they’ll say no, no, no. So you say, well, where, where’s your line? And I had this conversation with a friend in Nashville, for example, he comes up to me and he’s like, look, I see what you’re doing. I know you’re pro-life. I just think that, you know, once there’s a heartbeat, you shouldn’t be able to get an abortion.
[00:25:15] And I’m like, cool. Cool. All right. So when do you think that happened? When do you think your heartbeat comes? Like, I don’t know, like what, like third, second, third trimester. And I was like, no, actually heartbeat can begin at 21 days. And it’s detectable as early as six weeks. And he’s like, Oh, I had no idea. And I was like, yeah, you’re a lot more pro-life than you thought you were.
[00:25:37] Right. He’s like, yeah, well, that’s the case then, like, I would say six weeks is my cutoff or 21 days or whatever. Right.
And that is progress. I want him to become fully pro-life where he is. Pro-life in the moment of conception, but now we have a conversation. We’re talking right. He’s now moved from second and third trimester to heartbeat.
[00:25:59] So asking questions about maybe where they would draw the line is going to clarify for you, maybe end for them where their heart and their head is at. Number two, I think there are a lot of people who are confused about rape and incest and life of the mother. And I get that. I do think that that is the hardest conversation to have, I’ll start, you know, with the, with the rape, with the rape angle, rape is a most cruel thing that can happen, I think, to a woman in a relationship or whatever, you know, in an assault. And we must condemn rapists. And I am horrified that that is taking place in our society.
[00:26:40] We should penalize those criminals more than anyone. I think what they’ve taken away from a woman is unjust. It’s taken away innocent. It’s terrible. But the reality is in our society, we do not, we do not give rapists the death penalty. The United States Supreme court has actually ruled that you can’t give rapists the death penalty.
[00:27:00] And so now what we’re seeing is the only person who’s penalized with death for a rape is that unborn child, if that woman gets pregnant and I’ve met women that have been born out of rape. So my friend, Kathy Barnett, you can go watch her video on live action. Just type in live action, Kathy Burnett, with a K.
[00:27:23] Her mom was raped. Yeah. And like she found out that that’s what her conception was like, and it broke her heart, of course. But like now Kathy’s out there speaking up and saying, my life mattered. I have purpose, you know, God put me here for a reason, even through that circumstance and her mom choosing life, even in the hardest of circumstances.
[00:27:46] It’s such a, it’s so powerful. And, you know, we’ve talked to a lot of rape survivors who have said, you know, either that they’ve regretted their abortion or that choosing life was the only good thing, only redemptive thing. And I hope no woman is ever in that position. I would, you know, again, it’s the most tragic thing, but.
[00:28:09] It’s not my opinion that matters. It’s the opinion of women who have been through it and who say I chose life and that saved my life. I don’t think I could have endured a rape and the violence of an abortion. The violence had to stop. They experienced violence with the rape and the violence wasn’t going to continue, you know, it needed to now be about love and life.
[00:28:30] So that’s, that’s on rape. I think there’s the realization that no matter how you’re conceived your life has a purpose and you, your heartbeat is here for a reason is one thing to push back on and on life of the mother, we’ve got great, great medical professionals who’ve talked about the fact that look, you know, there are movies out there where, you know, the dad has to pick between the mom and the baby, they’re in the hospital.
[00:28:57] And the mom, you know, blood pressure is dropping and pick, pick, pick, who is it going to be? And I kind of thought it was going to be like that, Sophia, I had a baby and I was scared of that situation. So the more and more research I did though, the more I was encouraged that if something happens during pregnancy or during labor, where they need to separate the mom and the child, the answer to that and the fastest, safest answer to that is either emergency C-section or inducing labor. So for a friend of mine who had their mom had preeclampsia, which is high blood pressure, they did need to separate the baby from the mom. So they did induce labor early and got the preeclampsia under control or an emergency C-section.
[00:29:41] But there is no need to go in and brutally dismember, a child starve, a child ingested child, pull them apart in order to say the life of the mom, the Dublin declaration is thousands of OB GYN and medical professionals agreeing to that. So this life of the mother thing where you hear these crazy rare stories of, you know, if I didn’t have my abortion, I would have died.
[00:30:04] You got to look into that and pull up the fact that sometimes those late term abortions actually took longer than an emergency C-section would have, or. Inducing labor would have or a fetal abnormality, same, same situation there for baby has down syndrome or anacephaly. The answer is life is the goal is to save the life of both mom and child to truly love them, both.
[00:30:27] Not kill one to save the other. And I will say this, I looked at say that moms do so much better, Sophia. They do better when they’re given a chance to see their child be with their child. If that child passes shortly after there is closure and a story to tell versus a secret to hide and no closure and wondering what your baby looked like.
[00:30:52] And, and I’ll, I’ll say I’ll wrap here. You can start with Chrissy Tiegan who just shared her story of miscarriage is falling a little bit – So tragic. So I just saw an interview the other day. She said, I wish I saw his face. I didn’t, I didn’t. Get to see you’re holding my baby. And so you know, miscarriage is different than abortion, but I think it points to the fact that, you know, moms want to have that closure with their child.
[00:31:19] And when you go through an abortion, you don’t get to have that opportunity. So the big word called palliative care, perinatal and palliative care, which is taking care of children with, you know fetal abnormalities and treating them in a way that is loving and kind. So that was a long answer, but I feel really strongly on that.
[00:31:41]Sophia Lebano: [00:31:41] I can tell.
[00:31:42] And I love that — that conviction is something that we all need to have kind of just on fire inside of us. So do you have any last words of advice or any thing that you want to offer to the audience on how we can start to really have this deal for being pro-life.
[00:32:01] Alison Centofante: [00:32:01] Yeah. Well, thank you for being pro-life and for giving me a chance to talk about it.
[00:32:06] I encourage everybody listening to follow live action on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Tik-TOK, parlor, clubhouse, whatever you’re using. We want to hear from you. We want you to be a part of the conversation. We want to answer the hard question we’ve literally exist to serve you and to save lives. And so I will encourage you to join our movement.
[00:32:25] Speak up for life. Take small steps of brave action. You will see lives saved. And I can’t wait if you’re a believer to get to heaven and meet all the people that we saved. All the women that, you know, God sent along our path. And even though we face suppression and a lot of obstacles, I’ve been amazed the way that God aligns our messages to get in front of the right people at the right time to change hearts and minds and save some lives.
[00:32:50] So just be encouraged. You’re on the side of science, a reason, logic, compassion – and inclusivity. This is the truth and this human rights abuse. If we can fix this, we will be taking care of children, babies, women, men, families, and be a unified force to go fight these other human rights abuses that come out of a lack of concern for human life.
[00:33:17] So let’s get that thing, that straight first let’s care for human life at its earliest conception. And then we can go after all these other very important rights and movements that will flow from it.
[00:33:29] Sophia Lebano: [00:33:29] Amen. I love it. And of course I had so many, so many other questions and I want to talk about, but the last one to wrap up is what is your handle on all of your social media accounts?
[00:33:38] I can link it below.
[00:33:41] Alison Centofante: [00:33:41] Oh, thanks. Well, I’m new — I feel like I’m still newly married, so I don’t remember all my handles, but my full name is Alison Howard Centofante. So you can find me on Instagram. I think it, alisoncentofante and on Twitter it’s like AlisonHC, I think, or something I’m so bad, but maybe you can add it in those show notes.
[00:34:02] They can find me there.
[00:34:03] Sophia Lebano: [00:34:03] Amazing. And of course live actions, all of their social media it’s will be down in the show notes below, but Alison, this is amazing. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to share your knowledge with my audience.
[00:34:15] Alison Centofante: [00:34:15] Sophia, thank you so much. I’m really excited to see what comes of it.
