Clay Smith of TN won first place in the National Right to Life Oratory contest held this past weekend in Pittsburgh. Clay lives in Nashville and graduated this year from David Lipscomb High School. He plans to attend Harding University in Searcy, AR next year.
His speech on abortion summed it up with “America’s view of abortion defies common sense”. I did hear him deliver his speech at the state contest on May 1st when our historic storm and flood was being waged outside the building. We actually had to interrupt the contest to take shelter for a period of time. Clay went on to deliver his speech with maturity and conviction despite the obstacles presented by the weather.
Our youth are pro life because they can see what some of their elders fail to see.....America's view of abortion defies common sense.....be encouraged by our youth!
Congratulations to Clay and the other winners...
