Liberal Celebs and Pols Laud Valedictorian Who Promoted Abortion During Graduation Speech

A graduating Texas high school senior used her valedictorian speech to promote abortion and is receiving kudos from well-known liberals in response.

Lake Highlands High School valedictorian Paxton Smith was supposed to center her pre-approved speech around the media and “how much of it she consumes and how that consumption has shaped the way she sees the world,” but she made a last-minute swap to address Texas’ new abortion law.

Gov. Greg Abbot signed a “heartbeat” law on May 19, that prohibits Texas abortion clinics from performing procedures after a fetal heartbeat is detectable, which typically occurs six and a half to seven weeks after gestation. 

Smith used her platform to criticize the law. “I have dreams and hopes and ambitions. Every girl graduating today does. And we have spent our entire lives working towards our future, and without our input, and without our consent, our control over that future has been stripped away from us,” she said. 

She admitted to being concerned that her efforts towards the future won’t matter if she is raped or her contraceptives fail. “I hope that you can feel how gut-wrenching that is. I hope you can feel how dehumanizing it is to have the autonomy over your own body taken away from you,” she went on. 

Smith characterized the law as a war on her body and rights. “A war on the rights of your mothers. A war on the rights of your sisters. A war on the rights of your daughters. We cannot stay silent,” she concluded.  

A slew of prominent liberals lauded her with praise. “This took guts. Thank you for not staying silent, Paxton,” Clinton tweeted.

“Paxton, thank you for having the courage of your convictions and inspiring Texas with your refusal to accept injustice as the price of participation in civic life,” said Texas Democrat Beto O’Rourke said. “May we all use our place in this democracy to fight for what we believe to be right and follow your example!”

Author Jodi Picoult wrote: “We stan a queen. Presenting Paxton Smith, speaking with courage, integrity, and intelligence.” While comedian Sarah Silverman simply said, “Brave.”

Another “WOKE” Brain dead high school student. How many aborts has she had? If you raped or health problems I can see abortions. Otherwise keep your knees together and don’t let your hormones’ get out of hand. Shame so many babies die for the inconvenience of stupid people.

I Have been asking this question of pro abortion people for over 12 years and never get an answer:
In 1960 Stanley Ann Dunham was a high school senior looking forward to going to college. Then she got pregnant. The father of her baby was black Stanley Ann was white. In 1960 unwed mothers were shunned in the communities. To make things even worse her babies father was already married with children. It is not hard to.imagine that if abortions had been as readily available then as they are now Stanley Ann might have opted to get one. IF she had had an abortion the world would have NEVER heard of Barack H. Obama Jr. So….who is it that the next aborted baby might have been?

The anti-Americans would find another Obama just like they found Biden; two chosen by the communist Soros.

She can explain her beliefs to God one day. A beating 💓 confirms life. If she keeps her self till marriage she won’t be murdering babies. Or sell the butchered parts to the Federal Government and other sick folks.

By promoting abortion this high school graduate is promoting a barbaric act that is a crime against humanity. People need to wake-up and realize that abortion is the foundation of violence in our society. “We must not be surprised when we hear of murders, of killings, of wars, of hatred. If a mother can kill her own child, what is left but for us to kill each other.” Words of St. Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa).

A correct moral compass is infinitely more important that being intelligent enough to be first in one’s class academically.

If she is is top number ONE in her class, what are the other 99% like? I figure her 15 minutes of fame are going to come back to bite her when she gets into the real world, starts applying for jobs and people see what she stands for. Just because your “WOKE” doesn’t mean much when older people writing your pay check and they don’t like it. May be tough to get a job. Good Luck! DUH “Here’s your Sign”

I always find it really amazing that a high school graduate would be thinking about her life and dreams being derailed by a baby when she’s only 18????
Why are you having sex in the first place? Better yet, why are you having unprotected sex????? I’m sure her parents are very proud! Idiots!

Evil. Just plain evil. Our kids are being taught evil is good and righteousness is evil.

Seems I remember reading about that someplace…. That will happen before something else… Oh! The Bible says evil will get worse before Jesus calls believers to be with Him in The Rapture…. Ah, yes, there it is!!

What does this tell you about the high moral decline of our country? This is truly what is wrong with the USA today. These idiots stand before their peers glorifying killing unborn babies, which they were only about 18 to 20 years prior, they don’t give a thought to the “what if mom felt this way before I was born and aborted me?”question. This isn’t about a right to choose what to do with your body ladies, the time for choosing was when you were lying naked with a man about to spread your legs, that is the moment you choose should I take a chance on getting pregnant and having a baby possibly by myself.
