Coming to a Campus Near You, SFLA President Kristan Hawkins Launches 2023 Fall Speaking Tour: “I’m Coming for Your Abortion Access”

Caroline Wharton - 02 Oct 2023

“Since our society has a hard time understanding even basic biology, I want to make the pro-life movement’s game plan crystal clear: we are coming for abortion access,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “Why? If you need reasons beyond the fact that it’s a human rights abuse to deliberately end the lives of vulnerable innocents, come to my speech for compelling proofs that should unite everyone against the Abortion Industrial Complex.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (10-02-2023) – Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins announced a seven-campus speaking tour entitled ‘I’m Coming for Your Abortion Access,’ with more dates likely added. A dynamic presenter, Hawkins will engage students on five reasons why the pro-life movement wants to end abortion access.  

The five reasons Hawkins will be highlight during this tour include 1) abortion is fueling population collapse, 2) abortion is destroying women’s health, 3) abortion is harming our environment, 4) abortion is practiced by eugenicists and racists, and 5) abortion is a tool of woke gender ideology.

Hawkins also sent a letter to Vice President Kamala Harris who is having a competing campus tour, challenging her to a debate on abortion. She stated, “While I believe in protection from conception until natural death, the Vice President can’t even name one single abortion limit she supports. With us about as polar opposite on this issue as possible, a conversation on campus would prove to be most interesting… but more importantly, it would set a good example for all students.

“I won’t hold my breath that either of our minds would change, but, in a time when many college kids disrespect First Amendment rights or even self-censor, it’s important for everyone to encourage civil discussion. Kamala Harris, let’s strengthen the bedrock of our country — free speech — and show American students what a friendly yet passionate debate looks like.”

In exercising our free speech rights on behalf of the preborn and their mothers, Students for Life of America team members and the Pro-Life Generation often face opposition and even violence.

Just last semester, multiple of Hawkins’ speaking tour stops were disrupted by violent, unruly abortion supporters. At Virginia Commonwealth University, her event included the arrest of several Antifa members, and emergency medical services were called in to treat an injured pro-life student. At the University of New Hampshire, 200 pro-abortion students gathered to protest her speech; watch the video clip HERE.

In the 2022 – 2023 school year, SFLA groups also reported more than 100 free speech violations, including censorship, theft of property, intimidation tactics, and more.
