Molly Anne Dutton’s inspirational life story has swept the country since Yellowhammer initially wrote about it on Monday.
Since then, multiple national media outlets have flocked to the story, including Fox News, which reposted Yellowhammer’s article on its website, and invited Dutton to appear on its top rated morning show, “Fox & Friends.”
“It’s Molly Anne’s personal story that’s inspiring the nation,” said Fox & Friends co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck. “Her biological mother became pregnant after being sexually assaulted, and she was pressured by her husband at the time to abort the unborn child, or face divorce. But along with the support of a Christian adoption agency, Molly Anne was born and immediately adopted into a loving family. 22 years later, she’s using her own voice to help other women choose life.”
Dutton started began the interview just like any good southern woman should. “Thank y’all for having me,” she said in a southern drawl straight out of The Loveliest Village On The Plains.
Hasselbeck and Dutton then spent the next several minutes discussing Dutton’s background and “Light up LIFE” campaign.
“I knew if I was going to share one story on Auburn’s campus, I did want it to be impactful,” Dutton said. She recalled two of her friends convincing her to make her personal story and adoption advocacy the primary thrust of her campaign to become Auburn’s 100th Miss Homecoming.
And Dutton’s journey is likely just getting started. In addition to the whirlwind of national media attention, literary agents have begun reaching out to discuss the possibility of Dutton’s story becoming a book at some point in the future.
