Molly Anne Dutton was just elected as the 100th Miss Homecoming at Auburn University, but her win was anything but typical.  It wasn't the backing of a big campus organization or her popularity that garnered her the honor. 

It was Molly Anne's personal story that took her over the top, and with that story has come national attention for a cause near and dear to her.

In her YouTube video that you can see below, Dutton reveals that 22 years previous, her biological mother had been sexually assaulted and that she'd become pregnant with Molly Anne.  The mother was then given the ultimatum by her husband: Either abort the baby or get a divorce.

Rather than aborting, she accepted the latter terms of the ultimatum and carried the baby to term.  At that time, after working with a Christian adoption group, she gave the child the chance for a good life with her adoptive parents.

Molly Anne used her own story to run for Homecoming Queen, using the platform of adoption advocacy with the campaign slogan, “Light up LIFE.” And she’s giving credit to the Christian organization that made her birth possible.

“Because that resource was made available to my mother, she decided to give birth to me,” she said in a campaign video for Miss Homecoming. “And here I am talking to you guys 22 years later.

In the video, Mary Anne also says that if could deliver one message to women who find themselves pregnant, it would be that they aren’t alone and that help is always available.
