Wait until you get a load of this video. As part of a school competition, this 12 old girl from Toronto gave a speech about abortion. Let’s just say it didn’t go over well with some teachers in the school. Watch the YouTube version of her speech here. I don’t care if you’re pro-life or pro-choice, this girl can bring it! We have a politician in the making or maybe the next big pro-life leader. Maybe she’s the next Sarah Palin!

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.
"There was a big stink about it, and we volunteered to step down ... but her teacher said 'No, she won fair and square, so she'll keep going on," said her mom. Lia is expected to present her speech at a regional competition tomorrow night, representing her school.
When asked what inspired Lia to pursue the topic so adamantly, her mother said it was "a little mystery."
While the family espouses pro-life Christian values, "it's not like we're out every weekend picketing," she said. "It was just something really deep in her heart, and she just felt really passionate about it." She added: "I kind of snicker when I see people on the Youtube video [comment box] saying 'Oh, her mother forced her to do this' - I'm like, 'No, I'm on the other end, trying to make her pick another topic!'
"But she was just really passionate about it, and she has her research on it," said the mother. "I really believe it's just something that God put in her heart."
