12 Year Old Girl's School Speech Becomes An Internet Phenomenon

Thursday, February 19, 2009 Posted by Shattered Paradigm

A 5 minute speech by a 12 year old girl named Lia has become an absolute internet phenomenon. In a little over two weeks her speech has received 245,713
views on YouTube.

The amazing thing is that her teacher and other school officials did their best to persuade her not to give the speech. She has faced ridicule and persecution for speaking her mind about such a controversial topic.

So what was the topic?


She began her speech this way: "What if I told you that right now, someone was choosing if you were going to live or die? 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."

Her passion for this issue is undeniable. Just check out the video of her speech below.....

Needless to say, Lia's speech has created a huge uproar in the pro-abortion community. She was treated shamefully at her school, but even worse has been the disgusting reactions to her speech on YouTube. The comments section for the video was eventually disabled by the author because so many of the comments by the pro-abortion crowd were becoming so abusive.

But that is the kind of world we live in now. Hopefully more young people from the next generation can stand up like this young woman did and take a stand for what is right.
