She is one of the wealthiest former supermodels in the world, and she is standing up to leftists even if it kills her career.
Kathy Ireland is a staunch pro-life advocate and recently gave an interview showing her strong support for pro-life causes.
Ireland, a former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, used her early success to create a multi-billion company. At the height of her success, she married Greg Olsen had three kids and sort of disappeared from the limelight.
“I didn’t want to be pro-life, it wasn’t part of my plan,” she recalled, but added that “once you know the truth, and you know a human being’s life is in danger, nothing else matters.”
The former supermodel said that she was a “slow leaner” and was a pro-choice Christians for a long time.
“If we saw someone murdering a three-year-old on the street, we would intervene,” Ireland said. “When you recognize that this is a human being that we’re talking about, you do whatever you can to stop it.”
“Once you know the truth, it’s hard to un-know it,” she emphasized.
The model said that she was warned by people in the Hollywood bubble not to come out a pro-life.
“I was told this would kill my career,” the former model explained, adding that the pushback, however, was “irrelevant” to her.
“There’s been a lot of pushback from it, yet it is so irrelevant when we’re talking about a human life,” Ireland told prominent pro-life activist Lila Rose.
“I had business colleagues say, ‘Just don’t even touch this subject,’ ‘This will kill your career.’ And I was like, no, if I have an opportunity to speak about life, of course I’m gonna take it, I don’t care if the career is killed,” the former model said. “We’re talking about a baby being killed!”
“If our business goes down the toilet, so be it,” Ireland recalled a conversation with a former business partner. “If one woman watching cancels her appointment, it is so worth it.”
“The Lord will provide,” Ireland added, “it’s gonna work out.”
