Set aside 10 minutes to watch this pro-life video

This is a wonderful pro-life production from 13 year-old Lia.  I will say no more, except, set aside 10 minutes and watch it.

Do let me know what you think of this video. Tell me, if you would, your age and occupation - and your suggestions as to how the video might be used by the pro-life movement.  I would like to share your thoughts, through this blogpost, with my visitors.

Here are some comments I've received:
The Pro-Life community is constantly growing with the maturing of new wave of dynamic young defenders of life. Lia has a gift for communication that far surpasses her 13 years. She is one of many young pro-lifers who are coming to the fore and denouncing the arbitrary killing of so many from their generation. 
I believe that youth from around the world should be asked to give their reflections and testimonies on the life issues like Lia does so well. The freshness and frankness of youth is a welcome addition to the social discourse on abortion and related topics. Joseph Meaney, Director of International Coordination,

I think Lia has presented the arguments in a very clear manner, and what comes across is her personal conviction in the matter i.e. the video is not just a performance. The arguments are all so straightforward, common-sense, and I think this would be excellent material for use in schools - unfortunately not what our government had in mind under the rubric of sex education, but a serious approach to the most crucial ethical question of our age.

Brilliant video! It's so encouraging to hear young people willing to speak out in defence of the unborn, especially someone as young as Lia. Clearly, Lia is already a fantastic orator with the gift of being able to deliver the truth with courage, confidence and clarity. Lia is not afraid to stand up and be counted as a defender of the unborn, which is truly admirable, given the prevalent culture of death that surrounds us. We can all learn from Lia that no matter how old we are, we can and should stand up for what is right. I hope that many more people, young and old will be inspired by Lia to defend and protect human life from its earliest beginnings until its natural end.
