Pro-Trump singer Joy Villa delivered a powerful message on Sunday at the 60th Grammy Awards in New York City. Last year, she shook up the Grammys with a “Make America Great Again” dress. This year, she told America to “choose life.”

Villa wore a white wedding dress with a painting of a fetus in a mother’s womb, surrounded by a rainbow. She also carried a purse reading “choose life.”

“I’m a pro-life woman. This year I chose to make a statement on the red carpet like I always do,” the singer told Fox News. “I’m all about life.” She said she was inspired to paint her dress because she gave a baby up for adoption when she was 21.

Last year, she wore a “Make America Great Again” dress, sending liberals into a tizzy.

Predictably, this year’s dress inspired liberal outrage, just like last year’s.

Jaremi Carey, a drag queen actor, slandered Villa on Twitter. “You’re talentless You’re an idiot You look like sh*t  Did you paint that dress yourself? Crown by Party City,” the cross-dresser tweeted. How tolerant!

The LGBT website “JoeMyGod” also attacked Villa. “Just walked past Trump sycophant Joy Villa. This year her dress has a fetus on it. Ugh,” the site’s account tweeted.

Outrage was not limited to liberals, however.

Kinsey Schofield, a former social media consultant and television personality, jokingly suggested security should have prevented Villa from attending the awards. “How does Joy Villa keep getting past security?” Schofield tweeted.

Not a liberal, Schofield reached out to PJ Media, insisting that her tweet was “fashion commentary” rather than an attack on Villa’s political message, which Schofield appreciated. “No problem w/the message,” she tweeted. “Only the execution.”

Villa’s pro-life message was in keeping with most Americans, who support wide-ranging restrictions on abortion, according to a new poll. Earlier this month, hundreds of thousands of Americans stormed Washington, D.C. to march for life. Women at that march championed the pro-life cause over abortion, arguing that life, rather than abortion, really empowers women.

All that said, Americans should take Villa’s dress with a grain of salt. Three years ago, the singer identified herself as “pro-choice” on Twitter.

Furthermore, this singer is a Scientologist. She belongs to a cult that has allegedly forced its members to perform abortions. Actress Elisabeth Moss, best known for her role on “The Handmaid’s Tale,” a series praised by pro-abortion activists and associated with the anti-Trump “resistance,” is also a member of this cult.

“Choose life” is a powerful message for the Grammy Awards, whether or not Joy Villa is the right person to deliver that message. The singer could have worn that dress as a political stunt to garner attention, but the message is still important.
