12-year-old steals day with pro-life speech
Teachers threaten disqualification, but girl chooses to speak against abortion

By Chelsea Schilling © 2009 WorldNetDaily

“Despite facing threats of disqualification, a 12-year-old girl took first place in a speech contest when she eloquently argued for the rights of unborn children – after an offended judge quit.

“What if I told you that right now, someone was choosing if you were going to live or die?” the seventh-grader begins in a video recording of her speech on YouTube. … And what if I told you, you could do nothing about it?”

The girl, a student at a Toronto school identified only as “Lia,” continued: “Fellow students and teachers, thousands of children are right now in that very situation. Someone is choosing without even knowing them whether they are going to live or die.

“That someone is their mother. And that choice is abortion.”

But what made the 12-year-old choose to speak about abortion?

Awesome! A 12 year old girl standing up for herself and for life, and not being discouraged even when all her teachers pressured her to pick another topic, priceless. The things we can learn from our youth. Truly inspiring! Maybe she can speak to those in congress before they try to pass the F.O.C.A.

Let us know if you hear anything about whether or not she won the regional contest. Apparently it took place last Thursday.

Praise the Lord for this little girls video.
The Holy Orthodox Church is unrelenting: abortion is an act that is equal to murder in every case. Corroboration of this from all sources comes from Christ our God.
Keep it up my friend.
