Pro-Life Youth Essay Contest

"Yes, I take abortion very personally. I was scheduled to be aborted on February 18, 2003 at 9 am that morning. I thank God for giving my mother the wisdom and strength to cancel the procedure."

-2017 Entry, Middle School Division

Each year, Right to Life Michiana sponsors a youth essay contest, cultivating pro-life leadership at a young age by encouraging students to articulate pro-life truth with compassion. The contest gives students the chance to practice expressing their beliefs and think critically about the real-life consequences that stem from a disregard for the value of human life.

 

This year our contest differed from past years in that the entry was not an essay, but a letter. Youth were challenged to practice a different written skill by writing a letter to Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
