One small 13-year old was brutally shouted down during a North Carolina City Council public meeting. Her speech struck a nerve with the audience because she compared abortion to slavery. The child was trying to get across that she felt that abortion was murder and that babies are not the property of their mother’s but was met with loud screams from the audience.
“My name is Addison Woolsey. I strongly believe that abortion is murder. I also believe murder is wrong, so I’m here to ask you to make abortion illegal in Raleigh. Abortion should be illegal because it’s murder. The definition of murder is the killing of one human being by another without justification and acting with intended malice.”
“When mothers choose to slaughter their innocent babies they already have fingerprints, noses; they can recognize their mom’s voice. They can hiccup and their heart is beating … On ultrasounds the baby tries to run away from the disturbing instruments that try to kill the baby. The baby’s mouth opens wide in a scream when being killed. These babies are alive. They feel being killed. It hurts them and there is nothing they can do about it. There is no way around it. Abortion is murder.”
She continued, “There’s no way around it. Abortion is murder. So why is it if an infant is destroyed before birth there’s no problem but if killed after birth it’s considered a brutal murder. These babies aren’t ‘its’ or ‘fetuses’; they are human beings and they deserve to get the same human rights as any other person. As fetal doctors have said, a person’s a person no matter how small.”
Just moments later Woolsey was shouted down for comparing abortion to slavery because ‘Owners said that their slaves were their property’:
“Abortion reminds me of slavery. Owners said that their slaves were their property and they could do whatever they wanted with them. Just how moms feel about their babies. My hope is that in a few years we’ll look back at abortion and think, “That was so cruel. I can’t believe we did that. Just how I look back at slavery. The question is, who will you be? The slave owner? … Rosa Parks ? Or Abraham Lincoln?”
“Who are you going to be? Make a choice. My choice is made. I’m here today standing up for what’s right. I’m here today speaking for those who can’t speak for themselves. Are you choosing to be like the plantation owner flogging the little black child?”
