Pro-Lifers Tell Washington, D.C. . .


by Kristan Hawkins, President

I’ll never forget the way I felt the moment the results of the 2016 elections became clear.

“This is our chance,” kept running through the back of my mind over and over again.

This is our chance to defund Planned Parenthood. This is our chance to secure a pro-life U.S. Supreme Court – which we were told was virtually assured to fall into the Abortion Lobby’s hands for decades.

This is our chance to take a giant leap forward for the pro-life movement – and usher in the day where all life is respected in America.

Judging by the turnout from the recent March for Life in Washington, D.C., I’m not the only one who feels that way.

Just a week earlier was the so-called pro-abortion “Women’s March” in Washington, D.C., which was filled with everything from expletive-filled rants to even a threat of “blowing up the White House” from one aging pop star.

I saw much of it firsthand, as Students for Life had a massive on-the-ground presence to ensure the media didn’t get away with pushing the storyline that the Abortion Lobby is gaining strength.

But the 2017 March for Life couldn’t have been any more different.

Instead of lewdness and hate, Students for Life volunteers showed nothing but love and care – even while insisting that our newly-elected government keep its promises to enact pro-life reforms.

While I was being interviewed on CBS, Fox News and even MSNBC, one of our team members, Sade Patterson, encountered pro-abortion counter protesters at the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Sade calmly and compassionately told these women about the dangers of abortion to women and how our Pregnant on Campus Initiative helps women.

After hearing about our charitable work –including handing out free resources and offering babysitting help to moms so they can stay in school with a newborn – the women walked away with a much more positive view of our pro-life movement.

This is how Students for Life wins hearts and minds on college campuses every day. It’s why polls show the millennial generation strongly opposes abortion-on-demand.

And it’s why Vice President Mike Pence – the first sitting VP to ever speak in person before the March, stated, “Life is winning again in America.”

Of course, as we work to ensure the opportunities we have today aren’t wasted, your continued support will be critical.

The words, “This is our chance,” are still running through my mind. We owe it to the precious pre-born little boys and girls we fight for to give it everything we have.

Please chip in with a tax-deductible gift of $25, $50, or even $100 today or make a monthly pledge of just $7, $15, or $30. Every sacrificial gift you make goes directly into our mission to abolish abortion in our nation, starting with this generation who is targeted by the abortion industry every single day on their campuses.

Students for Life Capitalizes on March for Life Momentum

by Tina Whittington, Executive Vice President

The enthusiasm we saw from the 2017 March for Life didn’t end when the sun went down.

Instead, the very next day at our East Coast National Conference, more than 1,800 young, energetic pro-lifers gathered to hear from top-notch speakers and learn the tools they need to become the most effective pro-life activists and save lives.

These young activists will determine if our movement is successful in 2017 and for years to come.

The battles we see going on in Washington, D.C. are critical. But to succeed in changing the culture against abortion, we must have a presence in every state, city and small town across America.

With your help, Students for Life is doing exactly that. To date, we have more 1,141 active groups across the country.

And after our national conferences – and the new activists we trained – I’m expecting many more to be formed over the next several weeks.

Students for Life is the most effective pro-life force taking on Planned Parenthood – right in their target demographic.

And as we continue to build and gain strength, we’re paving the way for all abortion to be ended in the United States. So thank you so much for your support!
