Maria Cahill, the winner of the Miss Delaware 2011 contest, is using her new-found fame to promote the pro-life message. She participated in the March for Life as Miss Delaware despite opposition, according to an interview to be published in full in Townhall magazine.
In an April 2011 video just prior to her winning the Miss Delaware title, Cahill indicated she would be using her fame to save lives.
She described herself as “one of seven kids” noting that thus “my family is extremely pro-life and conservative.” She said that in college the topic of abortion is taboo and suggested one reason is the fact that “this is murder we’re talking about.” She added “People don’t use that word . . . it’s a vulgar term, but that’s what it is -- it’s murder.”
