12-Year-Old Stuns Pro-Choice Teacher and School with Pro-Life Presentation LifeSiteNews.com

TORONTO, February 11, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – 12-year-old “Lia” of Toronto has become a star at her school and on Youtube with her five-minute pro-life speech, crafted for a school competition.  Despite discouragement and outright opposition, Lia’s presentation was so well done that she reportedly won the contest she was told she would be disqualified from, due to the “controversial” message of her speech.

“She was also told that if she went ahead with that topic, she would not be allowed to continue on in the speech competition,” Lia’s mother wrote in the email to the Moral Outcry blog.  “Initially, I tried helping her find other topics to speak on, but, in the end, she was adamant. She just felt she wanted to continue with the topic of abortion. So she forfeited her chance to compete in order to speak on something she was passionate about.”

The mother told LifeSiteNews.com (LSN) that the girl’s homeroom teacher was supportive of Lia’s speech even though she was pro-choice.  “After helping Lia do the speech she said, ‘It really got me thinking,'” the mom noted.

At the schoolwide competition, the mom said one pro-choice teacher on the judge’s panel “didn’t even want to hear” the speech, and stepped down from the panel before Lia began.  After the speech, which Lia’s family said was well-received by both students and teachers, the judges initially told Lia she had indeed been disqualified.  But controversy among the judges eventually led to a reversal, and Lia’s family learned the next day that the panel agreed the girl deserved to win the competition.

Hear the word of the Lord: for the Lord hath a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is no truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land. By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out and blood toucheth blood…. Hosea 4:1

We are living in a day when controversial issues leave one feeling very uncomfortable, especially when the controversial issue is a confrontation of one sin or the condoning of such.

My friend there is without controversy a great mystery…..

‘God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.’

Young Lia speaks with this Spirit and it is the Spirit of Life. The voice of reason and truth for the unborn finds its way from the mouth of a babe. Praise the Lord for not only Lia and her convictions for life, but the godly environment she has been immersed in at home.

  2. Greetings my brother in the lovely name of Yeshua. It is so sweet to know that you are reading and that with such conviction as to not only comment but also post such support against this grievous sin on X Process Armageddon. A blessing and spiritual asset to the readers of WordPress.

    When I first saw this video of young Lia, my heart wept that the Spirit of Life can give such a clear conscience to this young child while a nation blindly muddles through such blatant sin.

    May God have mercy upon this ignorant nation.

    Thank you brother for your support not only for this blog site, but for your unwavering stand upon God’s precious word.

    You are both a faithful brother and friend in the Lord. I only wish that there were far fewer miles between our homes. That shall only be consummated when our Faithful Lord call us home.

    God bless my friend
