Three students from the Father Pierz School of Religion in Pierz read their prize-winning pro-life essays at the annual pro-life dinner of the Morrison County chapter of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life Jan. 29 in Little Falls. The chapter awarded equal prizes of $75 to each of the students.
Kami Athman, a ninth-grader, advocated for protecting life at all stages and valuing each person regardless of how small, poor or unwanted they might appear. Magen Langer, a 12th-grader, used examples of two women who were urged to abort due to life-threatening health issues during their pregnancies; the children they gave birth to are Tim Tebow and Pope John Paul II.
Emily Solinger also a 12th-grader, refuted common arguments in favor of abortion, which takes away the most important right of a human being — to live.
