Watch Out, West Coast: Students for Life Spokesperson Autumn Higashi Launches Fall 2023 “Planned Parenthood Betrays Women” Speaking Tour 

Caroline Wharton - 27 Oct 2023

“This tour is vital for my generation because Planned Parenthood specifically targets us as nearly 90% of Planned Parenthood facilities are within five miles of a college campus. That cannot be spun as unintentional,” said Students for Life of America Senior Spokesperson Autumn Higashi. “I am tired of the abortion giant’s dangerous lies being spread, and I want to make sure all Millennials and Gen Z have their blindfold taken off, too. It is time for us to boldly proclaim the truth and refuse to let Planned Parenthood control the messaging that dominates our education systems.”

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (10-26-2023) – Students for Life of America (SFLA) Senior Spokesperson Autumn Higashi announced a speaking tour entitled ‘Planned Parenthood Betrays Women,’ with more dates likely added. A full-time pro-life activist and member of Gen Z herself, Higashi will educate students on the dangerous business model of Planned Parenthood and help them build a culture of life on campus. This is a crucial responsibility as Students for Life of America’s Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement has found that college-aged students are the abortion giant’s prey of choice with nearly 90% of all Planned Parenthood facilities located within five miles of a college campus.

Higashi continued, “My goal is to not only educate students on the dangerous and deadly business model of Planned Parenthood but to offer them more. There are pregnant and parenting students on every campus and what is the abortion lobby doing to support them? Nothing. This tour will also encourage and inform pro-life students on how they can be an authentic support system for the pregnant and parenting mothers on their campus and in their communities. Women deserve better than Planned Parenthood, and I am excited to bring that message to the West Coast.”
