11-yr-old pro-life girl brought to tears by pro-abortion activists outside DNC Convention
Life Site News ^ | 09/04/2012 | Bryan Kemper

September 4, 2012 (StandTrue.com) - I want you to meet my friend and fellow abortion abolitionist, 11-year-old Zoe Griffin. In a world when grown adults ignore, deny or just don’t care about the abortion holocaust that has claimed over 55 million of Zoe’s generation, she is willing to take a stand no matter what people think. Zoe joined her mother and friends to lay thousands of roses outside the site of the Democratic convention and pray for the babies, the politicians and this generation.

While Zoe was praying, pro-abortion activists who claim to stand up for women began to belittle and scream at Zoe for her stand for life. What is so sad is that one of the women who did this to Zoe, Sunsara Taylor, is a well know anti-porn activist who claims to be against the degradation of women. I guess just not 11-year-olds who believe that women should not be dehumanized by the abortion industry.

I'm tempted to agree... however, if you consider abortion to be murder how can you keep silent and a clear conscience?

Too bad Zoe doesn’t have a black belt and an anger issue.

I love this kid.
The emotions at the core of the pro-life impulse
are the purest emotons any human being could ever
be blessed with, regardless of their
age, regardless of when they “converted” to that position, or otherwise
came to it.
It’s almost a shame it ever had to enter the political arena,
but it has, and we’re stuck all manner of rogues, knaves and fools for enemies.

I agree. While the pro-abortion crowd was nasty to this girl and should not have been, the girl’s parents deserve blame too. They should have expected this by bringing their daughter to a Pro-Life event at the Dem convention. They should have known there was going to be nastiness. No one should use their kids as props in political battles (and no, the little girl did NOT make this decision herself).

Doesn't mean parents need to bring their kids into the mix.

And if the parents are going to bring their once-innocent-minded kids into the mix, don't just stand idly by as another adult brings your kid to tears!

Too many wrongs in this story.

The screamer said “it’s not a baby until it’s born”...

To anyone that says this, I reply “Sure, before it’s born, it’s just as likely to be a wombat, right?”

Almost all kids when they face a death for the first time, whether it's a pet, a family member or Just someone they know, will cry their heart out in the knowledge of how bad it is. It's a simple lesson; Life is good and death is bad.

That doesn't mean that the kid couldn't have wanted to do it. (ie, the parent may not have intended to "bring the kid into the mix" but rather the kid went into the mix of their own will.) I've known several youngsters with the will & conscience to want to stop abortion.

And if the parents are going to bring their once-innocent-minded kids into the mix, don't just stand idly by as another adult brings your kid to tears!

That is a given, and indeed more indicative of a) horrid parenting, and/or b) that the parent didn't want to go, but the kid.

“It’s a simple lesson; Life is good and death is bad.”

CS Lewis found death unnatural. It was not an original concept in God’s plans.

“THEY ARE NOT THE ONES MAKING ME CRY! YOU ARE! WITH YOUR DARK HEARTS, YOUR DARK MINDS TURNED AGAINST GOD”

Wow, a direct cry of the Holy Spirit...and from a “out of the mouth of babes” 11 year old girl! That little girl is never going to be pro-abort, that’s for sure!

Thats’ real truth...it’s not about politics or women’s rights. It about dark hearts and dark minds turned against God. A million preachers should pick this up and preach with it this sunday...too bad it won’t happen...but I’ll certainly remember this kid!

I agree with your sentiment, but I don’t think the direction of the times will allow such kids to be left out of the fight much longer. I saw a picture of messed up Syrian kids, her age, who thought of nothing but revenge against the alawites that had hurt them and destroyed there families. Our own nation may be facing a blood bath and possible destruction and what of our children? How shall we protect them?

Debate? I’d be willing to bet she doesn’t consider it a debate. She was praying, and prayer, of course, starts as soon as a little child can raise her heart and mind to God.

Cheers to Zoe for standing up for her beliefs. If more of us were willing to put ourselves out there and face down these would-be tyrants, we would once again be a great (and more Christian) nation. God bless Zoe!

True! Good point. Many saints started very young with their holy espousing.

Why or why not? Are you basing your opinion emotionally, or logically? The girl was 11, being with her mom, learning what it is to be a young woman, to be a future Godly mother ;for menarche for her will soon occur for her if it hasn’t already. A girl needs to start to understand her potential for life bearing right about that time and our society’s fractured spirit concerning the family! The girl wasn’t a 3 year old for goodness sakes!

The girl will be just fine and given what came from her heart...a direct rebuke from the Holy Ghost, the pro aborts were shown grace and mercy compared to what could have happened to them! The pro aborts were doing wickedly and you want to blame the mom?

Death is a celebration; a “welcome to your eternal home”, in fact. This is not real “life”; this is but a shadow. Jesus said that our highest expression of love (marriage) doesn’t even exist in Heaven; that’s how much of a pale shade our world is.

True, death here is sad for those left behind; however, I’m teaching my kids it’s a celebration that those folks who are believers in Jesus Christ that are called home by God himself, rewarded, and told “Well done, my good and faithful servant”.

Have to disagree with you. This girl is standing in the line of fire at this time and in a way she will always remember. It will motivate her even more as she grows and matures.

I was 12 years old when I and my younger brother who was 10 together with a few other kids our age joined WWII and WWI era adults (parents could not attend) - some of them vets --about 20 of us in all to counterprotest the 2nd Moratorium against the War in Vietnam, held in Washington, DC on November 15, 1969.

We took a 3.5 hour charter bus ride from South Jersey to DC and witnessed a swarm of 10's of thousands of anti-war protesters, hippies, Communists screaming their chants, Viet Cong flags everywhere, US flags inverted and being desecrated - some being stomped on the ground, burned and torn. This were the "Occupy DC" protesters of almost 40+ years ago.

Our march went straight into the fray, carrying placars calling for Victory in Viet Nam, and carrying our US flags proudly. We had insults and objects thrown at us from all directions. Cops kept us separated from our antagonists. Their insults just steeled our resolve.

Our march intimately took us across the bridge to Arlington and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, where we held a small rally and had prayer calling for Victory in Vietnam.

That night, on our way out, trying to exit DC it was complete gridlock. We soon realized that we were caught in the midst of a riot, complete with all the smash, snatch, and grab. Shots rang out. I watched a store front get its window smashed by a guy with what appeared to be a metal pole.

We made our way out of DC slowly up and out New York Ave, and finally onto the highway for the 3.5 hour trek back.

I was too young to fight in Vietnam, and we all know how that eventually turned out, but I know where I was November 15, 1969, and at 3 separate Marches held later in DC calling for for Victory in Viet Nam in 1970 and 1971.

Sure, kids will be kids. Some grow up faster than others and some learn at an early age what it means to take a stand and to keep and eye on who our enemy is and what his tactics are.

This 11-year old lives on the back side of massacre of 55 million of hers and my generation since 1973. She's on the front line. She's taking this cause seriously at a young age, even as my kids did when they were growing up. I never hid the horror of abortion and what it is and what it entails from them.

And I support this girl completely. Every adult on this board, including her parents should support her too.

She will eventually be one who effectively changes hearts and minds because she has internalized the cause. She has stood in the gap, and she has been counted, herself, among those who care for the lives of the unborn.

FReegards!
