HOUSTON, Oct. 25, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- CHOICES4LIFE, Nov. 20, 2011, hosting society's first national Honor for Life Awards Gala, Humble Civic Center, Humble, Texas.
Eleven women from seven states will be recognized as heroes for saving the life of their rape conceived babies.
These women will be allowed to testify of the love they have for their children though the method of conception was horrific. Society will hear first hand the truth that rape is unwanted but these children are wanted and loved. For too long women have remained in a silent shame that is unwarranted. Now they shyly come out of hiding to have their honor restored. The circumstances are different, from date rape to incest, but all women love their children and have been able to separate their child from the rapist.
The goal of the non profit organization, CHOICES4LIFE, is to restore honor and dignity to women and children of rape conception who have never had a voice or help.
Juda Myers, conceived when eight men raped her mom, wants their shame replaced with honor.
"Their voices must be heard to end the last barbaric prejudice in the U.S. Women don't deserve the shame that's been placed on them especially when they want to give birth to a rape conceived baby. My mother is a hero to me, my adoptive parents and all the people who know me. I really want other women to know they are heroes also.
"One woman told me, 'Thank you for contacting me. This is the beginning of my healing.' Wow that's what it's all about."
In addition to inspiring words from the mothers, international speaker, Pastor Gary Wood will be the guest speaker. He died, went to heaven and returned to tell. His miracle is that he can walk and talk as anyone else but X-rays show he has a severed spine and crushed vocal chords. He is truly an unexplainable anomaly.

. The organization has a support group to assist women and children of rape conception. Mothers pregnant by rape can find support and know they are not alone.
