Jane Russell Remembered

Movie star legend Jane Russell recently died. She was well known for her sex appeal on the silver screen. What isn’t commonly known is she came from a devout Christian family. At only 18, when her career was taking off, she became pregnant. Jane resorted to an illegal abortion which nearly took her life. As a result, she was never able to conceive again. Emotional and physical healing came for Jane through repentance, faith and a compassionate and loving mother. After that, Jane put her passion into founding the World Adoption International Fund. She adopted three children. Jane Russell was never shy talking about her tragic abortion and encouraging women to choose life for their babies. And she leaves behind a legacy more important than film—six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
