A pro-life Dallas Republican operating for the Texas Legislature is utilizing her private knowledge with abortion and sexual assault to spread a message of redemption and forgiveness, The Dallas Morning News reported.
Lisa Luby Ryan, 57, is operating against Democrat John Turner in Residence District 114. She is an outspoken pro-life conservative and has spoken about possessing three abortions considering that she was 16.

“I know the other side of it now, I know who creates life. I didn’t when I chose to have my abortion,” she stated. “I speak to young girls all the time about the side the world doesn’t tell you. It’s not a good side. And there’s a lot of guilt and shame.”
Ryan stated she was raped by her father when she was six-years-old — an experience that had a devastating influence on her relationships with other males. But three years ago, she reached out to her father to forgive him. Ryan credited her conversion to Christianity with turning her life about.
“My story is about God’s mercy, grace, redemption, and forgiveness," she stated. "If a lot more women could forgive, it would set them free of charge.”
Nevertheless, Ryan insisted she will maintain her religion separate from her politics and would not bring a “pro-life” agenda if elected to workplace.
“If and when it comes down to the floor, I will often vote for life,” she stated. 𠇋ut is that my agenda? No. I’m going down as a fiscal conservative.”
