Waco Students for Life Groups Up the Ante in the #Sockit2PP Competition
Students for Life of America is hosting a competition among all its groups – college, high school, med/law, and young adult – to see which group can collect the most baby socks in our #Sockit2PP campaign.
Because our students are insanely awesome, they have taken this challenge and ran with it.
Three Students for Life groups in Waco, Texas – Reicher SFL at Reicher Catholic High School, Bears for Life at Baylor University, and Waco SFL, which is a homeschool group – went out and bought 2,000 baby socks already and tabled at their churches this past weekend.
Carson Macik is the president of Reicher Students for Life and is heading up the entire operation in Waco. We asked him about his motivation for the campaign to defund Planned Parenthood through the #Sockit2PP campaign:
“I think this generation has an opportunity that no other generation has had before. With advancing technology, innovative communication techniques, and an overwhelming passion among the millennials to protect the dignity of every human life (mother and child), we are finally marching up a civil-rights mountain that the greats like Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, and Saint Mother Teresa conquered before us.
“The majority of people realize the ethical and legal abolitionists who name themselves the ‘pro-choicers’ are really the guardians of the merciless killing of innocent children and that a just society must oppose such a needless loss of life. We are here, standing for freedom and liberty for those lives in the womb — supposed to be the safest place on earth for a child — through the #sockit2pp campaign effort and through the pro-life movement in general. We will succeed because the truth lies in our hands.”
The groups tabled at about half a dozen churches this past weekend and have already reached out to 50 more in the area. They are contacting several businesses around town and will table in public places as well
This group is fearless, ambitious and ready to #Sockit2PP.
