Right to Life sponsors essay contest

Middle school and high school students are invited to submit entries to an essay contest sponsored by Mesa County Right to Life.

The topic for the essay is a quote from Mother Teresa: "Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love but to use violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of love is abortion."

The deadline to submit is Dec. 31.
