Hollywood and show business are full of people who are filled to the brim with moral authority, but somehow they never get around to speaking up because doing so might hurt their career at this delicate stage.

Why it took Meryl Streep 45 years of acting, 20 Academy Award nominations, and 3 Oscars before she felt comfortable enough to agree that, yes, Harvey Weinstein was not someone from whom you would want to borrow a bathrobe.

Singer Joy Villa doesn’t have that problem.

At this year’s Grammy Award ceremony she threw holy water on Hollywood’s altar of abortion so to speak. Villa confidently strolled down the red carpet wearing a lovely white dress that boldly featured, in the words of Fox News, “[a] hand-painted image of a fetus surrounded by a rainbow, paired with a purse that read 'choose life.'"

That is not a statement designed to make one popular in a hotbed of angry Hillary bitter-clingers who think abortion is modern life’s real gift to women.

And in another break with the usual celebrity practice, the 26-year-old Villa has personal experience with the Pro-Life movement. Five years ago she gave up her own baby for adoption because she supports adoption over abortion. That sequence of events is what inspired her to paint her own dress and turn it into a moving canvas for life.

“I'm a pro­life woman,” Villa said. “This year I chose to make a statement on the red carpet like I always do.”

That’s putting it mildly.

Last year at this time, when Hollywood leftists were still wailing and gnashing their teeth over Donald Trump’s presidential win, Villa floated down the red carpet wearing a "Make America Great Again" dress.

Twelve months later she’s still happy with President Trump. “I love what he is doing; unemployment is down," she said. "I am totally for President Trump, and it's only been one year. I can't wait for the next seven years!”

That’s not a sentiment she shares with the vast majority of attendees at this year’s Grammy Awards.

And that’s what makes Villa so admirable. It’s easy to be visible supporter of the unborn in church or in your neighborhood Bible study. It takes courage to visibly stand up for the unborn in the unholy atmosphere of a Hollywood award ceremony.

I’m sure Villa understands that being unafraid is not without consequences professionally. The potential threat, however, doesn’t deter her. I wish there were more people in Hollywood who would follow her lead and stand up for the unborn.
