This video is a recording of an eloquent pro-life speech delivered by a young Canadian girl named Lia.
According to information posted here by onenewsnow.com about the video, Lia gave the talk at a speech competition at her school, against the wishes of the competition’s organizers.
Lisa’s defense of unborn children in the context of the tragedy of abortion was so persuasive, according to the Internet report, that she was declared the winner of the competition.
“What if I told you that right now, someone is choosing if you were going to live, or die?” Lia begins her presentation. “What if I told you that this choice wasn’t based on what you could or couldn’t do, what you’ve done in the past or what you would do in the future? And what if I told you could do nothing about it?
“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.”
