Special Announcement: 2022-2023 Medical & Law SFLA Speaking Tour!

Caroline Wharton - 29 Jul 2022

With Roe v. Wade finally reversed, we need pro-life doctors and lawyers now more than ever. Progress has certainly been made, and momentum is on our side, but the medical and legal professions are on the frontlines — and right now it sadly appears that they lean heavily pro-abortion. We must fight back and change our culture, and that means taking back these professions for life.  

That’s why Students for Life of America (SFLA) is bringing pro-life medical and law professionals to campuses across the nation again this year through our Medical and Law Students for Life Speaking Tour. With a goal of visiting 25 different campuses, we hope to train over 1,000 pro-life medical and law students.

SFLA’s Programs Coordinator Lucy Gonzalez spoke out in favor of the tour, saying:  

“The goal of the Med & Law Speaking Tour is to prepare young pro-life professionals to pursue their career aspirations and protect the most vulnerable. With the reversal of Roe, pro-life medical and law professionals are pivotal in the future of our culture.”  

During the 2022-2023 school year, student groups can choose from a range of speakers and topics that pertain to first-trimester abortions. Examples of approved topics for this school year include:

  1. First Trimester Abortion and Fetal Development  
  1. The Effects of Dobbs v. Jackson’s Women’s Health and the Reversal of Roe v. Wade    
  1. How to be Pro-Life in the Medical and Law Professions  

A list of approved speakers will be sent to applicants. SFLA is also willing to consider student speaker suggestions if the speaker meets our criteria. A fitting speaker must be a professional in the field, cover a topic that fits within the theme of the tour (first trimester abortion & the reversal of Roe), agree to SFLA speaking terms and conditions, and fit within the tour’s budget.    

Speaker scholarships to host the Medical and Law Tour will be granted to leaders of Med & Law SFLA groups, as well as other partnering campus organizations. These lectures will be open to all medical and law students at the university. Occasionally, community members as well as undergraduate students are welcome to attend depending upon the location.
