April EIB: Abortion Pill Reversal:Last month we focused on the pain and regret that women go through after they have an abortion. The regret after an abortion is sometimes an immediate realization or it could set it years, even decades, later. However, there is hope for women now that have consumed the abortion bill, RU-486, and it can now be reversed.
For April’s Event-in-a-Box we have set up a complete guide for you to understand what Abortion Pill Reversal (APR) is, educate your peers on APR, and ultimately save lives with what you learn. Inside the Event-in-a-Box, you will find details about what Abortion Pill Reversal is, how it works, and where to send mothers who may want to reverse the effects of starting the abortion process. In addition to the resources inside your box, later in April, you will receive notification from your Regional Coordinator about a Sidewalk Counseling Training webinar to prepare for a sidewalk counseling event. After completing the training, schedule a day/time to go to a local abortion facility to confidently share your knowledge of APR and gathered local resources for those you meet.
Students for Life wants to provide you with plenty of resources on this topic, because guess what is happening in California? The California legislature is attempting to pass a bill, SB320, that will allow college campuses to distribute the abortion drug through their student health facilities.
Why should you care about California schools? Well, the reality is, if this bill is approved, there is a chance you could find it attempting to infiltrate your college campuses as well. So, we want to make sure you are ready to defend the sanctity of human life on campus, but also be ready to assist women that take the first abortion drug and soon after regret that decision.
In the Box:
Abortion Pill Reversal Awareness Guide
Abortion Pill Reversal Flyer
25 Abortion Pill Reversal Drop Cards
20 Fetal Development Postcards
20 Pregnant on campus drop cards

Today, Judge Royce C. Lamberth for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, issued his ruling against the plaintiffs, in the Sherley v. Sebelius case.
Since 2009, the case has sought to overturn the controversial guidelines for public funding of destructive human embryonic stem cell research from the National Institutes of Health. The case has been filed by adult stem cell researchers who contend that President Obama’s embryo-destructive stem cell research funding policy violates the ban on federal funding for research that involves harming or destroying embryos.
I’ve mentioned before how much I love hearing from former SFL students and leaders who have made a difference in the lives of others, or from someone directly affected by what a Students for Life group has done for them.
Recently, I was in touch with Kelsey Hazzard, a former Students for Life leader and founder of Secular pro-life, a group she started in 2009 to combat pro-abortion initiative across the spectrum of faith. This is her story:
Jenn Giroux is a busy woman. Not only is she a proud mother of nine, she’s also brought together a dynamic and hardworking group of six women who have dedicated themselves to introducing a counter-cultural view of what they say is “the greatest profession on Earth”. And they know – between them, they have 44 children.
The group, who has been traveling to high schools, college campuses, and conferences across the nation to introduce their presentation, “Speaking of Motherhood”, is led by Giroux, who founded and served as the Executive Director of Human Life International America as well as Association of Large Families of America (ALFA). You can also add Registered Nurse and author to her list of impressive titles, but motherhood is her crowning achievement.
This summer, Planned Parenthood attempted to block a provision of Indiana law that states that doctors must tell a woman seeking an abortion that human life begins at conception, but this effort was denied by U.S. District Judge Tanya Watson Pratt on Friday.
Pratt, who has since become a minor celebrity within the pro-life community in just the few short days following the blocked provision, “respectfully disagree[d]” with Planned Parenthood’s claim that the language within the provision, which states that “human physical life begins when a human ovum is fertilized by a human sperm,” is too confusing and provides an ambiguity when used in the context of abortion.
Rick Santorum, a favorite among politically-savvy pro-lifers, announced back in June that he condemned doctors who perform abortions and noted that conceptions that occur in cases of rape or incest should not provide an exception to this rule.
The Republican presidential candidate was interviewed by David Gregory, a journalist and moderator of NBC’s Meet the Press, on Sunday and made his thoughts on the sanctity of human life overtly clear after being asked his thoughts on the topic of exceptions for his staunch pro-life stance.

When one considers the ethics of manipulation, the question of whether we ought to, or whether we may manipulate an organism or entity depends on the answer to the first and most fundamental question: What is it? Ascertaining the identity and status of the object of our intended manipulation is essential. In the fields of…

By Kristan Hawkins Executive Director, Students for Life of America As you probably know, Tuesday’s vote on the Personhood Amendment in Mississippi failed to pass.
