Choose LIFE!

My 13 year old daughter wrote the following speech ("Choose Life") for her final speech presentation in our homeschool co-op.  Below the speech, you will find my daughter’s email that she sends to people.  This is her 8th year that she has been participating in Steps for Life.  We are so proud of her for standing up for what she believes in and for defending the defenseless.  If you’re interested in giving/making pledges to save lives, please visit my daughter’s website or contact her/me directly at

                                            CHOOSE LIFE   
     Psalm 139: 13-16 says, "For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb.  I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place.  When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body.  All the days ordained for me were written in Your Book before one of them came to be."
     God has plans and purposes for everyone since a person is in his or her mother’s womb.  A baby is already alive and in the process of becoming who God wants him or her to be.  Each baby is a person created by God in His image.
     How can this country allow evil or misguided people to destroy innocent babies?  People should praise God for each new life He creates instead of killing them.  People should never interfere with God’s plan for each person’s life.  Nobody should be allowed to be "pro choice" which means they support the right to choose to kill babies by way of abortion if they feel like it.  It is not even appropriate that they call themselves "pro choice" because there is no choice for the babies whatsoever!  The babies do not choose to die!  Abortion should be illegal because it is clearly murder.
     Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRC) is a Christian, non-profit organization that offers help and hope to women and teens facing unplanned pregnancy.  By helping them meet their emotional, physical, and spiritual needs, PRC enables them to choose life.  Everybody whether young or old should stand up against abortion anyway he or she can!  Steps for Life, PRC’s 2.5 mile walkathon fund-raising event, is a great example of how people can help save the lives of innocent babies and encourage one another to choose life.  Let’s all choose LIFE!

My name is Alyssa.  I am an 8th grade homeschooler.  I am participating in Steps for Life, a fund-raising event for Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRC) again this year. This year if you sponsor a walker for at least $150 by May 1, 2007, you will receive a free Steps for Life sweatshirt. I have my own website where you can visit and make pledges online. The address is

The Pregnancy Resource Centers of Greater Portland help women and teens who face unplanned pregnancy.  They help meet their emotional, physical, and spiritual needs, enabling them to choose life.  They have six centers throughout the Portland area, and have ministered to over 110,000 women and teens since 1984.  They provide free services such as counseling, ultrasound, adoption info., maternity & baby clothes, parenting classes, spiritual encouragement, etc. 

Please join me in saving the innocent lives of unborn babies by making pledges.  You don’t need to pay right now. You can choose to be billed later.  Any amount would greatly be appreciated!  If you do not want to make pledges online, you can still make pledges by emailing me your name, address, and the amount you would like to give.  Donations to PRC are tax-deductible.  For more info. about Steps for Life, please visit  


P.S. Thanks so much to all of last year’s sponsors! I was able to raise over $1,000. I hope you will join me again this year in saving precious, innocent lives. God bless!
