Amazing Pro-Life Speech

This video was recently posted on The Rebelution, and I wanted to share it with you all. I think this is fabulous! It is a speech by a 12-year-old girl from Toronto, and she actually won her public school speech competition with this, and has already saved a child's life. Way to go Lia!



Hugs,
Sheila

Well, you know my feelings on the issue... However, it is a good speech, and I do agree rates of abortion are too high. It's just that in my opinion, people should be focusing more on making birth control available to all, and educating people on it, than abortion.

Peace,
Idzie :-)

I do agree that birth control should be made better available, that's true. :-)

This girl is confident and she is on top of her speech. I am pro-choice but honor and respect others views.

This is great information on resources that are available by state... check it out...

To the "Pro choicers"
Uh, birth control not readily available? I don't think so. I've seen with my own eyes, "protection" available in basket on the counter at the local health unit - free and available for the taking, no questions asked. Doctors these days are seemingly happy to dispense more of "the pill" or Depo Provera (et al.) on an unsuspecting, and already over-estrogenized population (can anyone say "breast cancer"?)

How about good old abstinance. How about looking at the right of all to live - the unborn included. I can only begin to hyperventilate when considering the depths of selfishness that bring on the decision to abort. Consequences are not a popular idea these days. Anyone old enough to make a baby, knows how to prevent it. When you've seen buckets full of baby parts, it puts the whole thing in perspective. Think about it.
BTW, I'm "pro choice" too: Choose to do the right thing, and consider the needs of others (the unborn) above our own.
