Lia’s Challenge: Pro-Life Film Contest Winners!

When 12 year-old Lia Mills wrote her speech about abortion for a school contest, she had no idea that it would garner over a half a million views! In order to give other young people this same opportunity, Lia partnered with the Susan B. Anthony List to sponsor a pro-life video contest. Youth from across the country sent in their pro-life videos, sharing their unique perspective on Life! The creators of the two winning videos will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship. Watch the excellent entries from our winners and finalists below!
