12 Year Olds Pro-Life Speech

World Net Daily has an article about a girl in Toronto who won a speech contest with a speech that was against abortion. This story has sort of two directions. One is the boldness of the girl to stick with her topic even while being told, as her mother relates, "… if she went ahead with that topic, she would not be allowed to continue on in the speech competition."

The other story is that of the judges. The fact that the one of the judges quite and that initially the speech was disqualified before being reinstated as the winner says much. The boldness of this young girl is to be commended, may we all be so bold.

Below is the speech.

The one thing I would add, and this is not to take away from the young girl’s speech, is that the arguments used while good the truth is the main argument against abortion is that God values life and it is not allowed by God to abort the life He creates. I realize that for many this is not a valid argument or a convincing enough argument to use but simply because others do not accept an argument does not make the argument any less correct. We need to make sure as Christians we are not so influenced by the culture that we continually try to couch our arguments in the language of the world and thus avoid the only standard we can truly lean on and that is God’s standard as revealed in His word.
