Get Educated with the September Event-in-a-Box!

 

You may not be super excited about the end of the summer… but you should be excited about the September Event-in-a-Box from Students for Life!

We are so close to abolishing abortion.

Are you ready to keep up the momentum?

The theme of the 2017 September Event-in-a-Box is “Abortion Procedures” and it includes everything you’ll need to bring the abortion dialogue back to its roots. There are too many pro-choice advocates out there supporting a violent procedure they may not even fully understand. Many of them have bought into the false notion that abortion is simply “the removal of a clump of tissue”.

Sometimes, a clean, honest conversation about what abortion really is can make all the difference.

This Event-in-a-Box will provide you with all the training and materials you’ll need to educate your peers about abortion procedures. Above all, we encourage you not to be afraid of this topic. We’ve taken the grim reality and packaged it in a way that is clean and informational.

PLUS- this is a great introductory event to do before you host the 2017 SFLA Fall Tour on your campus (hint hint)!

On Gay Marriage and Abortion

By Kristan Hawkins, SFLA President

Update: Read my statement on the Supreme Court decisions

Let me give you something real quick to think about this morning:

“I really think that abortion is at the root — you could do a flowchart — I think abortion is at the root of so much that has and is going wrong in this country. I think that the number of abortions themselves, but what in toto it all means, culturally, in terms of the sanctity of life, how that’s crumbled, I think it’s almost at the root of everything. And if it’s not at the root of everything, it’s clearly had a profound impact on our culture, our society, and our politics, I think in ways that people don’t even stop to consider.” — Rush Limbaugh

EQUALITY-2I have to admit I don’t listen to talk radio that much, but last week a friend forwarded me the transcript of Rush Limbaugh’s radio show and I think he summed up what we are seeing in our nation.

This morning, the United States Supreme Court handed down its decisions in two marriage cases. They decided the bedrock of our civilization — the family — would forever be altered.

Limbaugh has a point. When we forget about something as simple as when life begins, how easy is it for America to throw everything else away?

We live in a world of disposable diapers, disposable razors, disposable marriages, and disposable lives. It comes down to one simple truth: if life isn’t sacred, nothing else can be.

I think it’s a crucial time for our movement to reflect on the immense power 9 unelected Justices on the Supreme Court have and how, despite bad and out-of-touch rulings, our movement has the ability to change our culture, which will ultimately lead to a change in laws and of those very Supreme Court rulings.

Those 9 Justices hold the balance when it comes to abortion as well.

Let’s face it — most Americans refuse to even accept that abortion is what it is. To most people, it’s just a woman’s right to choose, and it’s nobody’s business, and leave it alone,  and don’t talk about it. But it’s really had much more impact on this country than just that. It’s had an impact on the family. It’s had a profound impact on our politics. It is at the root of our cultural rot and decay.

I think there is an easy case to be made that shows how the legalization of abortion over 40 years ago has led our nation to where it is today, divided over gay marriage. But regardless of what the Supreme Court says about gay marriage, we are fighting a battle for the heart of our nation, for our civilization, every day.

And it starts right where our team is at – on our nation’s college and high school campuses. That’s where it happens.

That’s where we are told to believe that there is no objective morality, no right or wrong. That’s where we are fed lies by the taxpayer-funded abortion Goliath, Planned Parenthood, and told that saving sex before marriage is impossible, talking to our parents is unrealistic, and simply using contraception will solve all of our self-esteem and relationship problems and protect us from STDs and cancer.

And yet, college campuses are where we have the greatest chance to change our culture. This is where we can fight back — before it’s too late — against the Culture of Death’s lies and shine the light of truth to every high school and college campus we can get to.

We’ve studied history, and we know that culture proceeds legality. If you want to change our nation’s laws, start with changing our nation’s culture.

…and if we want society to start valuing marriage again, then start by respecting the dignity of human life.
