Pro-Life Essay Contest: Monica Reeson, then-a ninth-grader at Guardian Angels Central Catholic Junior/Senior High School, West Point

One choice has changed America forever by turning our culture into one of death and hate. This one choice has killed over 55 million babies and has praised the choice to do so. This choice was the legalization of abortion in the United States on Jan. 22, 1973. It is up to this generation to restore America as a culture of life and love.

Pro-life Essay Contest: Danny Buser, then-a seventh-grader at St. James Seton School, Omaha

Almost every day you hear a news report of a person who was shot and killed. Scenarios such as this one are happening more frequently. Although murder is increasing, it is not the only way people are being killed. The year 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, legalizing abortion in the U.S. It is also the Catholic Year of Faith and we can stand by our faith to show our disagreement with the practice of abortion. We believe that all voices, born or unborn, deserve to be heard.
