Patricia Sandoval

The annual Stand Up for Life Dinner will be held Sunday, Nov. 21 from 4:30 to 9 p.m. at the Sheraton Hotel Downtown, 201 N. 17th Street in Philadelphia.

The event gives the pro-life community in greater Philadelphia a chance to gather and further the mission of making abortion unthinkable.

This year’s speaker is Patricia Sandoval, an international pro-life and chastity speaker who shares her story around the world of her three abortions, work behind the hidden doors of Planned Parenthood, followed by nearly three years as a homeless drug addict.

She testifies to the saving love and mercy of Jesus Christ and his desire to bring this world’s hidden dangers into the light for healing.

She is currently the host of a weekly television program, “Pro-Life Report” on EWTN Español and is the author of the book “Transfigured,” which has been translated in several countries.

All are encouraged to attend or make a contribution to the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia area’s fundraiser.

Tickets start at $75, $50 for students.
