Over the weekend, we were privileged to listen to many of the SFLA national staff members, the experts in cultivating powerful pro-life student groups on campuses throughout the country. Individuals like apologetics speaker Jay Watts and SFLA president Kristan Hawkins spoke on everything regarding the most effective dialogue techniques and arguments to how the new media can be used to share the case for life. Going in to the weekend, I had two primary goals. The first was to be able to sleep on my cross-country red-eye flight. That was unsuccessful. The second, however, was that I would return to Phoenix re-energized and inspired to lead Arizona State University’s pro-life students in building not just a club, but a movement that will end abortion on our campus, in our state and in this country. This goal was most certainly reached. As I flew home, I couldn’t help but list idea upon idea that I cannot wait to share with our club’s executive team, and then with all of our members upon arrival back on campus.
While it would take too much space to share everything I’ve learned and my hopes for this year with you, I can share this: ASU Students for Life will be highly visible, active and powerful this year. We will utilize the diverse talents of our team to create the opportunity for our members to participate in education, service, and activism to grow the pro-life cause. We will commit to supporting pregnant and parenting students through their college experience via a new campus pregnancy support initiative. We will remind our peers that this time in our lives is essential for asking and answering hard questions, and we will change our campus. The pro-life movement is winning, and we cannot wait to contribute to the victory.
