Anna Young - Empowered for Life

Thursday Jan 06, 2022

Thursday Jan 06, 2022

Recent high school grad Anna Young won the 2021 National Right to Life Oratory Contest with her speech "Empowered for Life." 
For her topic, Young chose the theme “female empowerment.” In her speech, she told about seeing a Planned Parenthood Instagram post that said, “There is nothing more empowering than a woman walking into a Planned Parenthood.”
Young challenged this assertion, saying, “I refuse to believe that women’s empowerment … could come from killing another human being. … Women’s empowerment is  a woman realizing she shouldn’t have to choose between her baby and her dreams … a woman realizing her body and the baby inside of her is not the enemy … a woman standing up to the culture and saying ‘I can’ when everyone around her is telling her that she is too weak. …
“Empowered women empower women to choose life. No matter how heartbreaking your situation is,  abortion will not solve your problems because living human beings inside of you are not problems; they are blessings. There is empowerment waiting for you, but it is not inside of a Planned Parenthood.”
