And of course, the baby-killers are foaming at the mouth

Here's some of the article from LifeSiteNews.com; (Emphasis mine) 12-Year-Old Stuns Pro-Choice Teacher and School with Pro-Life Presentation

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.

"What if I told you that right now, someone was choosing if you were gonna live or die?" begins the charismatic seventh-grader in a practice recording of the speech posted on Youtube. "What if I told you that this choice wasn't based on what you could or couldn't do, what you'd done in the past, or what you would do in the future? And what if I told you, 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."

Lia's mother says that the topic was of her own choosing, and that she was determined not to back down, even after teachers told her it was "too mature" and "too controversial."

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.
More than a few of our own fearless bishops could learn a thing or two from this girl.

Have this child speak at the next USCCB....maybe, just Maybeee, those present will acquire some courage in their spines.

Instead of the "shepherds" leading their flock, it takes a child to educate them in faith and morals!

Great job by this young girl!

Isn't there something in Scripture to the effect that "a child will lead them."

And Jesus put a child in their midst and said, "Unless you be converted like children, you can not enter the kingdom of heaven"

I watched this video here a few days back....I went to Joe's blog and when I tried to watch it there, I was denied. Came back here to watch it again and was denied here as well.
