Voice of the Voiceless, By Leah F.

Voice of the Voiceless

By Leah F.

Have you ever heard about the March for Life? How about pro-life or pro-choice? All of these things are a debate about making abortion legal or illegal. Pro-life people don't want abortion. They think it is murder. Pro-choice people allow abortion, saying that if the mother didn't want the baby, she could get rid of it before it becomes a problem, or in other words, alive (as they would define life). But what pro-choice people don't realize is that the baby is already alive.

Some of you may be saying, "What even is abortion?" Well, abortion is taking a forming baby out of a mother, and throwing it out. At first you think "Why would they throw away a baby?" The problem is that some doctors don't believe it is a live baby at all. They think that the baby is just a piece of tissue until it comes out of the body.

Now where am I getting with all of this? I am telling you this for one reason; abortion is wrong. God made us, and we are alive. Jeremiah 1:5 says that before we were born, God knew us. Have you seen those baby feet pins that people wear? That is the size of a baby's feet at 12 weeks in the womb. It looks like a baby's feet, right? You've got all of the toes! And that is not even half the time a baby spends in the womb! That is only 3 out of 9 months! How do people mistake that as just a piece of tissue?

Luke 1:44 says that when Elizabeth heard the foretelling of Jesus, the baby in her womb leaped with joy. This verse proves two main things:

1. The baby was alive

2. The old Bible time people knew and believed that the baby was alive. Think about it. We have all of this technology. We can take pictures of the babies without actually seeing it. And yet, some people won't believe it is alive when it is right there. But then you see the people in the Bible, who didn't have any of that. But somehow their faith in God was so strong, they didn't give it a second thought.

Psalm 22:10-11 says that you (God) were my guide since I was born, then later on it says, that from your mother's womb, you were my God. This is talking about how God was guiding you even before you were born. He was guiding you since you were first formed in you mother's womb.

In conclusion, I would like to restate the fact that abortion is wrong, and that if anybody ever asks your opinion, don't hesitate. God gave us the gift of life, and we should not kill the innocent. As it says on the back of this year's pro-life t-shirt - "Be the voice of the voiceless!" If you would like to check it out, the link to the March for Life Web site is:

So in April, we wear the t-shirts to support the babies. This year they are green, last year they were blue, and the year below they were red. The old saying is "It's okay to be pro-life."

GGFG invites you to wear green, even if you don't have the official t-shirt, the 27th - and if you'd like, take a pic and send it in to or post on our Facebook page -
