This is Natasha. She is 16. She had her first debate in high school on abortion yesterday and won it 30-3. Natasha happens to have Spina Bifida. Her parents, and so many like them, were pressured to abort her because of “her quality of life & cost to society.”
Natasha won her debate because she spoke passionately from experience about what abortion steals from us.
Her mom says, “I think her quality of life looks pretty dang near perfect. She waterskis, snow skis, wheelchair races, runs 5ks, plays wheelchair basketball and a whole lot more.”
Thanks, Natasha, for showing us that our challenges don’t define us or destroy our lives! And congrats on your win!
