ASU STUDENTS FOR LIFE TO ADDRESS ABORTION IN CASES OF RAPE
“Sexual assault is unfortunately prevalent on college campuses and pregnancies do result from these senseless acts of violence. However small the percentage of abortions that are committed because of rape, they do happen and lives are taken and shattered because of it,” said Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life of America. “The We Care Tour aims to equip pro-lifers about how to compassionately talk about abortion in cases of rape and give students who have been victims of sexual assault the resources they need to find help and healing.”
The tour will feature a display about how to talk about rape and abortion in a persuasive and compassionate way. Students will distribute supplemental materials as well.
“The word ‘rape’ is sometimes referred to as a four-letter word when it comes to talking about abortion but it needs to be discussed and we are hoping to present our pro-life message on the rape question concisely, compassionately and accurately to all students, pro-life and those who passionately disagree with us,” added Hawkins.
ASU Students For Life is the non-partisan, non-sectarian, student-led organization leading the growth, expansion, and development of the pro-life movement on the ASU campuses. Our mission is to promote a pro-life culture that protects human life at every stage. We strive to achieve this mission through an active campus presence, and we focus on raising awareness about the physical and mental effects of abortion, as well as other human life issues, through education, outreach, volunteering, and activism.
ASU Students For Life seeks to provide a comprehensive suite of aid and resources to those members of the ASU community who are facing unplanned pregnancies as well as those who are looking for healing from past abortions, in a compassionate and confidential environment. We aim to ensure that no member of the ASU community will ever feel pressured to choose between their child, and their education, goals, and aspirations.
ASU Students For Life recognizes and advocates for the inherent beauty and value of all human life at all of its various stages. As the leading pro-life organization in the ASU community, ASU Students For Life is unwavering in our core purpose to stand for and defend the right to life for all human beings from the moment of conception until natural death.
As a registered ASU student organization, our weekly semester activities empower members of the ASU community to celebrate and advocate for life by providing training and education sessions, hosting speakers and debates, engaging our community through volunteering, assisting individuals who choose life in any way we can, and encouraging dialogue about abortion and other life-related issues in the ASU community.
