Addison Woosley, a pro-life 13-year-old in Raleigh, North Carolina challenged her city to support preborn lives, end abortion, and establish Raleigh as a sanctuary city for the preborn. Several audience members jeered and yelled at Woosley for making the powerful connection between abortion and slavery.
Woosley challenged them; ‘are you going to be the slave owner or the abolitionist?.’ “Who are you going to be, make a choice!”
KAAABOOOM!!!2 Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes, to still the enemy and the avenger. Psalm 8:2I went to my first city council meeting tonight in Raleigh. I use to think those were boring. Not any more. Proverbs 31:8-9

Even though some city council members and audience members didn’t appreciate her comments, the majority of young people are pro-life. Recent polling reinforces this view.
College Pulse, a national research group that regularly polls thousands of college students on their views on different issues, released new poll results–with a deceptive, and largely untrue, conclusion.
They wrote, “A new survey found that students at four-year colleges are more supportive of abortion rights than the general public. The majority of college students (78%) believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, while 22% say abortion should be illegal in all or most cases.”
But digging into the data, you’ll find that actually the students they surveyed hold largely pro-life views. Question 4 asks students to pick every situation where they believe abortion should be legal. Here is what they found:
- 20% said that fetal abnormalities is a reason to keep abortion legal
- 23% said in the cases of rape
- 24% said when health is at risk
- 17% said in abusive relationships
- 14% said if the partner of the mother left during the pregnancy
That means that 80% did not believe that fetal abnormalities were a reason to keep abortion legal. That means 77% did not believe rape justified abortion. In fact, 86% said that the partner abandoning the mother and child was not a reason for legalized abortion; we can see this as a proxy for asking about poverty.
According to LifeNews.com, Roswell in New Mexico declared itself a sanctuary city for the preborn. They write, “
The resolution states that “innocent human life” deserves to be protected, and “life” is the “first declared right” in the Declaration of Independence. It supports “adoption as an alternative to abortion,” as well as resources to “ease the burden of adoption.”
The council members also supported conscience protections for medical workers by recognizing the “rights of healthcare providers to object on moral grounds to performing abortions” in the resolution.
Several council members spoke strongly for the rights of unborn babies, but one of the most moving testimonies came from Councilwoman Angela Moore, who became pregnant as a teenager and made an adoption plan for her twins, according to the report.”
