The 21st Annual Right to Life of Michigan Educational Fund Oratory Contest featured 23 high school participants. The competition was in Holt, Michigan, on May 8. Contestants each presented five to seven minute speeches concerning one of several prolife issues including abortion, infanticide, cloning and embryonic stem cell research.
Casey Miller from Tri-Cities Right to Life claimed first place. Casey, a sophomore at Grand Haven High School, spoke about the harmful effects of abortion on women. Sarah Michalek from Sanilac County Right to Life came in second. Sarah, a senior at Deckerville High School, spoke about the dangers of human cloning. Katerina Parsons from Jackson Right to Life came in third. Katerina, a home-schooled junior, argued that abortion is wrong because every unborn child is a "person" with rights.
Congratulations to the winners and all of the contestants for their excellent speeches!
