“I have made it my personal mission to be a voice for these innocent babies”

Rosemary Rozario attended NCRTL’s high school leadership weekend, Camp Joshua, last month.

Life. One word, four letters, and an endless amount of opportunities for those lucky enough to survive it. Unfortunately, not many are granted this gift or at least given the chance to unwrap and enjoy the treats in store for them in this world. Among them are the unborn, voiceless victims of abortion. These are the forgotten children who face discrimination based on their size, their level of development, the environment they live in, and the dependence they must have on their mother. CJNC15groupEven though these babies are smaller than we are, understand less than we do, and may not be as free to move about and be independent as we are, that does not mean they are less human than we are! Abortionists, lawmakers, and various communities fail to accept that life begins at conception and this same ignorance has ended a shameful amount of heartbeats in the past decades. However, we will end this massacre once and for all. No matter how many times we must pray in front of abortion facilities, go out on marches, raise money for struggling mothers who have chosen life, and help post-abortion mothers find hope. We will speak up for these babies and win them their justice. Camp Joshua has given me the confidence to say such bold statements about such a sensitive topic. It allowed me to speak to teenagers who share the same beliefs and brainstorm ideas on how we can make a difference within our own communities. I also met new mentors as I now look up to many of my councilors and speakers as they shared their own personal stories and gave us a whole new perspective on this difficult issue. A weekend packed with informative lectures and fun activities including poster competitions and pro-life jeopardy, this was by far my favorite event of this summer! Now as I prepare to take on my senior year, I have a list of brand new ideas to bring to my school pro-life club. I encourage everyone to get involved in this movement in whatever way they can. It's up to us to use our God given talents and technology to get this message across the world, whether it be through writing, drawing, music, dance, and especially social media. It is possible and we will make a difference! I have made it my personal mission to be a voice for these innocent babies and I pray that you too will find the same affection for these precious gifts waiting to be brought into the world.
