Rosaria Butterfield was a self-described leftist lesbian professor who despised Christians. Her very high profile conversion is recounted in her video My Train Wreck Conversion and her book Secret Confessions of an Unlikely Convert.

It’s no surprise she believed with all of her heart that women need an abortion.





But her pro-choice mindset was not just a plank in the pro-woman platform she built as a woman who dedicated herself to LGBT students at Syracuse University where she was a tenured Professor of English.

The story of a desperate family member using her knitting needles to abort a child she couldn’t feed was part of the fabric of Rosaria’s family history and lore. And it was a story of freedom and dignity and human rights.

With Rosaria’s conversion to Christianity a dissonance settled in: why is abortion wrong? And why do those who condemn abortion often celebrate capital punishment?

Much in the way that her heart was changed regarding homosexual behavior by knowing biblical truth, she found her answers in God’s Word–and in the loving community of people who accepted her and welcomed her for the long haul.

Join us as Cradle My Heart Radio presents the compelling answers about abortion in Scripture and the challenging proposal Rosaria shares for making abortion unnecessary and unthinkable in our time.

From Rosaria Butterfield’s bio:

Rosaria Champagne Butterfield, a former tenured professor of English and women’s studies at Syracuse University, converted to Christ in 1999 in what she describes as a train wreck. Her memoir The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert chronicles that difficult journey. Rosaria is married to Kent, a Reformed Presbyterian pastor in North Carolina, is a homeschool mother, pastor’s wife, author, and speaker.
