WATCH: Hawkins says pro-choice student believes baby born after failed abortion is ‘not a baby’
Her speech was powerful…
And many in the audience were moved – to jeers.
At the 2:30 mark, you’ll note the audience of ADULTS starts aggressively bellowing at this child for daring to stand up for the unborn.
Addison looked notably frightened by the end of her speech – and understandably so.
According to the Blaze:
Addison Woosley, 13, spoke out during a Raleigh, North Carolina, city council meeting Tuesday to call for an end to abortion. Her moving plea to make Raleigh a “sanctuary city for the unborn” included a comparison between the evils of abortion and slavery. Adults in the audience erupted into a frightening cacophony of shouts and jeers.
At only 13 years old, Addison proved to be one of the most mature people in the room:
“Abortion should be illegal because it is murder. The definition of murder is the killing of one human being by another,” Addison said. “There’s no way around it. Abortion is murder. So, why is it if an infant is destroyed before birth, there is no problem, but if killed after birth, it’s considered a brutal murder?”
She’s absolutely right.
At this point, angry shouting can be heard from the audience. But Addison presses on. “Abortion reminds me of slavery. Owners said that their slaves were their property and that they could do whatever they wanted with them, just how moms say about their babies,” she continued. “My hope is that in a few years we will look back at abortion and think, ‘That was so cruel. I can’t believe we did that.’ Just how we all look back at slavery.”
This is when the screaming hits a new high.
As Addison speaks, the shouting gets increasing louder until the teen’s voice is drown out altogether. A video of the council meeting, which you can see here, shows the girl looking understandably frightened as she wraps up her speech.
This is the world we live in. This girl looked truly afraid for her life… for speaking up for the life of unborn babies.
