Whether you are pro-life or pro-choice, this little girl’s argument is worth hearing. For decades, America has been divided on the subject of abortion and some might argue that a middle school student is too young to understand the complexity of the sensitive issue. But Lia, a 12-year-old middle school student, demonstrates a solid understanding and strong opinion on the matter in her persuasive anti-abortion speech. She chose the topic of abortion for her school’s speech competition, but was disqualified by her pro-choice teacher for presenting subject matter that was “too controversial”. Upon hearing Lia’s speech though, her teacher found it so compelling that she decided to let the 12-year-old pro-lifer compete. Lia ended up winning the competition and it’s easy to see why. Check out her compelling argument and let us know your reaction in the comments section!
