The Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia has hosted the annual Stand Up For Life Dinner since 1982. This incredible event brings together more than 1,500 people to celebrate the Culture of Life. This event also has a strong youth presence of more than 500 students from area schools. Among our past keynote speakers are recognized politicians, authors, and cultural leaders. At the dinner, the Pro-Life Union honors citizens who have courageously defended human life by working to transform our culture. Ryan Bomberger of The Radiance Foundation will be the keynote speaker at the 2014 Stand Up For Life Dinner on Sunday, November 23rd – Reception 4:30 p.m. – Dinner 5:30 p.m.
Ryan has a rather unique perspective of the innate nature of Purpose. His biological mother was raped yet courageously chose to continue the pregnancy, giving him Life. He was adopted as a baby and grew up in a loving, multi-racial Christian family of 15. With siblings of varying ethnicities, he grew up with a great appreciation for diversity. Ten of the thirteen children were adopted in this remarkable family. His life defies the myth of the “unwanted” child as he was adopted, loved and has flourished.
Today, he is an Emmy® Award-winning Creative Professional who founded The Radiance Foundation with his wife, Bethany. Ryan spoke at this year’s March For Life in D.C., is a blogger for LifeNews.com and has made multiple radio and television appearances, including an interview on MSNBC. He is a sought after source for his insight and perspective on many issues, particularly on the topics of the sanctity of human life and adoption.
