UNM SFL Demands School Stop Fetal Tissue Harvesting

By Bethany Janzen, SFLA Rocky Mountain Regional Coordinator

The University of New Mexico Students for Life group was the first group to host a rally demanding their school stop engaging in fetal tissue harvesting – and that the criminal referrals to the New Mexico Attorney General from the Select Panel on Infant Lives in the House of Representatives be immediately carried out.

At noon we were all set up outside of the Student Union Building on campus and started the rally.

I emceed the event which included David Rodriguez – president of UNM Students for Life, Elisa Martinez – New Mexico Alliance for Life, Dauneen Dolce – Right to Life Committee of NM, and Laura Rosecrans – Founder & Director of Surrendered Hearts Abortion Recovery Ministries New Mexico.UNM rally4

During the speeches, students and community members had the opportunity to sign a letter to the president of UNM calling on him to cease UNM’s participation in the harvesting of aborted baby parts.

See the letter here.

From personal experience on the sidewalk outside of late-term abortion facility Southwestern Women’s Options (the abortion facility implicated in Congress’ investigation because of their relationship with UNM), Rodriguez shared his personal story: “I have seen women crying. Girls holding teddy bears.” He focused on how UNM is taking advantage of women in difficult circumstances.

Elisa Martinez has been directly involved with much of the research that Congress’ investigation built on, and an invaluable asset to helping SFLA put together this event. She spoke about the technicalities of the laws that have been broken including a valuable exchange of services for aborted baby parts and women who did not give proper consent for research to be done on their babies’ bodies:UNM rally5 - elisa

“A journal from UNM’s lab records five years of information about the body parts obtained from aborted babies. ‘Intact pancreas [smiley face]. Twins, one with clubbed feet. Intact 30-week-old. Did not dissect.’”

Rosecrans shared her own story. She had an abortion at a young age and now deeply regrets her decision.

All of the speakers called for the harvesting of baby body parts to cease.

Some students listening to the rally choose to sign the petition to the UNM President (it included over two dozen signatures when delivered on Thursday after the rally, including campus student organizations such as UNM Students for Life and the College Republicans).

Although there was no organized opposition, some students shouted things like “you’re lying” during the speeches, yet others respectfully inquired into the facts and found the answers to their questions.UNM rally1

As students and concerned community members, we implore the UNM president to cease the illegal harvesting of aborted baby parts for research and call on the AG of New Mexico to lead an investigation into UNM and the Southwestern Women’s Option late-term abortion facility.

Similar events will be held in the next couple weeks at other universities who have been involved in fetal tissue harvesting and trafficking.


Week 2 of the WDNPP tour: Turning away a PP donor

This week was Week 2 of the We Don’t Need Planned Parenthood tour and while it wasn’t as showy as last week, a couple awesome things happened – keep on reading to find out!

At Illinois State University, Reagan Barklage, our Western Regional Director, relayed this story:

In the middle of hosting the We Don’t Need Planned Parenthood display at Illinois State University today, I had a young man walk up to the display and say he has been donating to Planned Parenthood for years. ISU WDNPP

I asked him if he knew about Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs)? He told me he didn’t so I told him how FQHC’s outnumber Planned Parenthood 20-to-1. I also told him how FQHC’s can offer way more comprehensive services to women, men and children than Planned Parenthood. Americans also have easier access to FQHC’s to Planned Parenthood, since there are only 650 Planned Parenthoods compared to the 13,000 FQHC’s.

The man looked at me in shock and asked if Normal, IL [where ISU is located] had anyFQHC’s, so I pulled up the www.findahealthcenter.hrsa.gov website and typed in our location. Within five miles of our location on campus there are four FQHC’s and 0 Planned Parenthoods.

I said, what do you think about Planned Parenthood now? He looked at me and said, “I think our money should be going to FQHC’s instead. Thanks so much for the information. I learned something new today!” He smiled and walked away.

This is why it’s so important to host displays on campus, because it brings attention to the topic and allows for kind and calm discussion. If we didn’t host this display today, that man may have continued to donate to Planned Parenthood for years to come and not know that his money could be better served elsewhere.

At Cal Poly- San Luis Obispo, Camille Rodriguez, SFLA’s California Regional Director, said:

Along with some great conversations today, we were ableCal Poly San Luis Obispo to hand out a TON of “We Don’t Need PP” postcards. We give these to students who are in a rush to get to class so they can still get the information.

After reading, one student returned to the display and asked if there was more he could do and signed our letter to Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.

He thanked us for not just giving stats, but for providing solutions.

Sometimes we can get discouraged when people take a flyer and walk by without saying a word, but this is just one example of why being out there and getting visible is so essential! If not now, when?

At the University of St. Thomas in Houston, Texas, Jillian Ferguson, our Texas Regional Coordinator, got this awesome video of the #ProLifeGen giving reasons why we don’t need Planned Parenthood:

Queens College SFL has 1st group meeting following lawsuit win

By Keri Landeche, Northeast Regional Coordinator

Late last month, Norvilia Etienne filed a lawsuit, with the help of our friends at Alliance Defending Freedom, against Queens College for refusing to allow her to start a Students for Life group. Not three days later, the school relented (yay!).

This week, Norvilia had her first official meeting for Queens College Students for Life.

Nerves are always frayed when it comes to the first meeting. Is anyone going to show up? Did we advertise well enough? Is the wifi in this room going to work?

But by the time the meeting was to begin, approximately 12 new members that the E-board had met at the club fair or had attracted through flyering around campus, were present.queens college meeting

Norvilia, now the president of the group, began the meeting introducing herself and explaining why she wanted to start the group.

She said she’s pro-life because of her own life story. When she was 16, she had found out that her mother considered aborting her.  Her mother thankfully chose life and thus, Norvilia is passionate about helping women in unplanned pregnancies when they feel like there is no other option.

Norvilia knows firsthand the joy of choosing life but also the struggles that come with that. She says, “Yes, we had a difficult upbringing and didn’t always have the shiniest toys but I’m glad I have my life. I’m glad I was given the chance to grow up and fend for myself as I do now as a college student. My mother is the strongest woman I know!”

All the new members introduced themselves and shared why they too are pro-life.

One student explained that she had always considered herself pro-life with an exception for rape. She had attended the club fair where she received a bag of pro-life resources from Queens College SFL and when she went home, she began reading the pamphlets inside the bag. She came across the Student for Life of America topic card “What about rape?”.

After reading it and thinking about her own life experiences, she realized that the way you are conceived has no effect on the fact that the human person has value.  She decided that she no longer believed in the rape exception and was excited to join the Students for Life group.

The group spent the rest of the time brainstorming ideas of what activities they hope to accomplish.

Their two main goals include educating the campus about pro-life issue and promoting pregnant and parenting resources to students in unplanned pregnancies.

They also hope to show the movie Maafa 21 this month, since it’s Black History Month, and the HUSH film in March. Also, they are going to be working closely with the Bridge to Life Pregnancy Center, which is only a few blocks from Queens College. Further, they hope to host the We Don’t Need Planned Parenthood display on their campus to educate the student body on real health care for women.

We are thrilled for Norvilia and think she is a wonderful example of courage. If it weren’t for her persistence in fighting for her club, this meeting would not have happened and this club would not have the opportunity to share the pro-life message on campus and help fellow students facing unplanned pregnancies.

We can’t wait to see what Queens College Students for Life accomplishes!

Students for Life Groups to call for investigations into fetal trafficking industry at their schools

The Center for Medical Progress videos that came out in the summer of 2015 and rocked the entire abortion industry became a catalyst for massive investigations into the illegal buying and selling of aborted baby body parts, invalid consent forms, and privacy violations – just to name a few of the criminal actions. At the end of last year, the Select Panel on Infant Lives in the U.S. House of Representatives, the task force investigating the abortion industry and their partners, released their findings in a 500-page massive report. During the course of their year-long investigation, they recommended over a dozen criminal referrals for Planned Parenthood and their business partners in the fetal trafficking industry.

Some of the referrals were against the University of New Mexico and other findings in the report pointed to the possible illegal involvement of other universities who may have been (and continue to) participate in the fetal trafficking industry.

Students for Life groups at these schools have been following the developments and with our help at national Students for Life of America, will be hosting rallies over the next month calling on their universities to stop participating in fetal trafficking and ask for investigations into possible criminal violations.

The map shows where we will be holding rallies:

  • The University of New Mexico
  • Indiana University
  • The University of Texas Medical Branch
  • University of Michigan
  • Colorado State University

Women and their preborn babies are merely numbers and dollars signs to the abortion industry, which seeks to make a profit off of illegally trafficking baby body parts and selling them for profit. The Select Panel report points to these universities as likely players in the fetal trafficking industry.

Additionally, contrary to what the abortion industry says, there is zero evidence that fetal tissue of aborted babies has contributed to any kind of life-saving treatment for disease. The abortion industry uses non-existent research for pressure women for their consent to hand over their aborted children for profit.


Planned Parenthood’s VOX Bullies Pregnant on Campus Group at W&M

Students for Life of America created the Pregnant on Campus (PonC) Initiative almost six years ago, and it’s been wildly successful. This Initiative gives students tangible ways to put their pro-life beliefs into action. PonC groups lobby their universities to become more pregnant and parenting friendly by introducing diaper decks into bathrooms, opening up lactation rooms on campus, having childcare available at the school, and educating students on what options there are locally (including important Title IX non-discrimination clauses at the school) to help them to parent their child or place for adoption and continue her education.

SFLA and PonC believe no student should be forced to choose between her child and her education. Our Pregnant on Campus Initiative promotes are real solutions and compassionate support for students facing unplanned pregnancies and for parents continuing their education. In fact, www.PregnantonCampus.org is the only website that has compiled both national and local resources for students at hundreds of colleges and universities around the country for anyone to access. William and Mary’s page even includes such items as where to ask for help regarding pregnancy policies and resources and even where to find lactation rooms on campus! (See their campus page here: www.PregnantOnCampus.org/WM )

These are worthy goals – and even students on campus who are pro-choice are encouraged by our Pregnant on Campus program. Some have even partnered with PonC groups for certain projects. Currently, SFLA serves over 180 PonC college groups nationally, including one at the College of William and Mary (W&M) in Virginia, which is an awesome group!

The W&M PonC group put up flyers around campus advertising the group, inviting people to their meetings and offering free resources for pregnant or parenting students.

Well, the Planned Parenthood affiliated group at W&M, VOX, was having none of this. They were so incensed by W&M PonC Initiative’s offer to help pregnant and parenting students that they posted a long rant on their own Facebook page, along with pictures of the W&M PonC flyers, to call attention to the “shaming language” and “misinformation” that the PonC group supposedly promotes. They attempted to claim that they are the only ones who could possibly offer unbiased information to pregnant women, even pointing their readers to their local Planned Parenthood (of course) and the National Network of Abortion Funds.

Without going into all the details that one can easily find with a Google search of Planned Parenthood, here are the highlights of unsavory business practices in this last six months of this supposedly trusted women’s healthcare provider:

  • They and their business partners have been referred for over a dozen criminal actions by committees in both the US House and Senate for illegally buying and selling the body parts of babies they aborted and handing over sensitive patient information.
  • Planned Parenthood boasts that they have a wide range of services, including prenatal care. However, a recent investigation found that isn’t the case at all. In 97 Planned Parenthood’s called about the prenatal care they offered, 92 said they couldn’t even refer the woman out for such care, much less provide it.
  • In interviews with former Planned Parenthood employees, abortion quotas are a thing – and employees get rewarded with things like pizza parties for meeting or exceeding those quotas. Planned Parenthood has an agenda and women are the victims, not the ones empowered.

The W&M PonC group saw the post and offered to talk to VOX and have a constructive dialogue. VOX would hear none of it:

vox wamm

This W&M Pregnant on Campus group is a great resource on campus, and yet they are being bullied for merely offering women a better option than abortion. The VOX group won’t even talk to them because they don’t agree with their beliefs of “equal access and justice” (AKA abortion-on-demand for any reason at any point in the pregnancy).

Here’s what you can do:

Go to the W&M Pregnant on Campus Facebook page, and send them a note of support. A campus is a small place, and word travels fast and is easily decimated. So this group needs support! Can you help?

We Don’t Need Planned Parenthood Tour Week One Wrap-Up

We launched our spring tour this past week, the We Don’t Need Planned Parenthood tour, which is exactly what the name states – educating students as to why we really don’t need Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion vendor, and telling them about much better options available for real, comprehensive healthcare.

The timing for the tour couldn’t be more perfect. The nation is in a heated battle right now over the defunding of Planned Parenthood. They currently receive more than half a billion dollars in tax money, which makes up 43% of their annual budget. By the way, this ‘nonprofit’ has had over $1 billion in revenue for the past several years, all the while continuing to receive more tax dollars and at the same time cutting their prenatal services, cancer screenings and other preventative care – and increasing the number of abortions.

Students for Life of America is the only national pro-life organization that has an organized tour like this going to over 80 campuses this spring and making sure we educate as many students as possible as to what Planned Parenthood does (abortions) and tell them that those tax dollars need to be redirected to community health centers, which outnumber Planned Parenthood 20-to-1, do not do abortions, and offer a much wider range of care.

This first week was a huge success! Here are just a few of the highlights:

The tour received a lot of media attention
Just in the first week alone of the tour, local television earned media is estimated at about $12,000 with segments having run on 32 newscasts over the course of the week.

You never know who are reaching
At Missouri State University, we found out that it was because of our previous Planned Parenthood Project campus tour that the current treasurer of the Students for Life group on campus became involved with the pro-life group (and she went to our conference too!).

We got to have great conversations with people who disagreed with us.
This girl is doing a paper on Planned Parenthood at Santa Clara University and was able to have a good discussion with the Students for Life group, who were able to back up their arguments again Planned Parenthood.

Students were psyched to sign onto our Pro-Life Generation letter to Congress asking them to defund Planned Parenthood.

We got to talk to Planned Parenthood directly
At Western Oregon University, a Planned Parenthood representative paid the students a visit, and they got to inform her about all the services Federally Qualified Health Centers offer in comparison to Planned Parenthood.

I told Planned Parenthood I was keeping my baby and they said they couldn’t help

Story from Christina Doell, Purdue University Alumna

When I decided that I couldn’t go through with my scheduled abortion, I called Planned Parenthood in Indianapolis, IN and cancelled my appointment. I then proceeded to seek out information on pregnancy care with the lady over the phone.

I just assumed since Planned Parenthood claimed to be a women’s health clinic that they could offer me the care I was in need of. The representative on the other end of the phone rudely responded that Planned Parenthood did not provide that care.

“Well, fine” I thought, slightly irritated.

So, I then went on to ask her where I could receive care. She simply stated that she could not direct me anywhere.

“Okay…” I responded and then simply thanked her and hung up the phone.

I was scared and had no idea where to go. So, I ended up going a few months without receiving any care. I did not know that I was supposed to take prenatal vitamins or not eat lunch meat. And thankfully I was able to get the care that I needed in my pregnancy crisis situation, but it was no thanks to Planned Parenthood.

It was around that time that I bumped into a student with fliers about Students for Life. I had heard of them on campus. I stopped and talked to her. She kindly directed me to LifeCare, a free non-profit pregnancy crisis center on campus. Because of Students For Life directing me towards LifeCare, I was able to get free counseling, maternity clothes, and educational classes on pregnancy and labor. They also helped me go through with my decision to place my daughter for adoption.

Planned Parenthood was not there for me as a woman in my moment of need.

It was basically like once I changed my mind about the abortion and they weren’t going to get their money, they didn’t care about me or my situation or at all. If Planned Parenthood was actually for women, why couldn’t they at least have directed me towards a place to receive care? And what about the baby girl I was carrying? Planned Parenthood did not care about her either.


What’s the #ProLifeGen doing this weekend? Protesting PP!

Planned Parenthood is freaking out about losing over $500 million of your taxpayer dollars, which makes up 43% of their annual budget. Sorry, but Americans don’t want their money funding abortions and Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion vendor, one that has been recommended for over a dozen criminal investigations by committees in both the US House and Senate.

The time is right now to defund Planned Parenthood and SFLA has been on the front lines of the fight from the beginning – and we aren’t letting up! In fact, this weekend, SFLA’s team and many of our students will be speaking at several of the #ProtestPP rallies on Saturday.

An invitation to join the movement that truly empowers women

By Tina Whittington, Executive Vice President, Students for Life of America.

Never have I felt more accepted and supported as a woman than I have by the pro-life movement.  After experiencing the Women’s March one weekend and the attending the March for Life the next, I felt that I had to speak up.

I was raised in Portland, Oregon which should tell you a lot about the social political climate I was raised in.  I was also raised by a single mother for most of my childhood before she married my awesome step-dad.  I didn’t even know that there was a pro-life movement but after my youth pastor spoke about the value of life at our high school youth group meeting in my Presbyterian church, I knew that I was pro-life.

I still didn’t know what to do with my newfound position but I knew that life from the moment of conception until natural death was valuable and that I was against the intentional ending of all humans.

When I was in college, I started having cysts on my ovaries that would burst and end me up in the hospital.  Doctors suggested I start taking hormonal birth control pills to stop the cysts from forming and rupturing.  Of course, I listened and went on the Pill.  The year I was on the Pill, I gained 20 pounds (which is a lot for someone who is just over five feet tall), and started experiencing some deep depression.IMG_9477

I spoke with some of my married friends in the same boat and found out they were experiencing similar symptoms had been prescribed anti-depressants or were taking St. John’s Wort to combat the depression they were feeling from the drug.

In the meantime, I joined a gym to try to combat the weight issue.

In my early 20’s, I met Rock for Life and they were speaking out for the preborn from the stage at concerts, festivals, and even recruiting bands to take up the pro-life cause and speak out.  It was from this organization that I learned about the harm the birth control pill can have on a woman’s body and that it can act as an abortifacient, ending the life of a child right after conception.

Through Rock for Life I was pointed to another great organization – Northwest Family Services – where I learned about natural fertility methods and worked with Nurse Rose to naturally treat my ovarian cysts and infrequent ovulation.

It was within the pro-life movement, that for the first time, I was exposed to how my body worked and to learn to embrace the way my fertility was uniquely designed.  I felt empowered as a woman and supported to discover just how awesome it is to be formed in such a way as to conceive, carry, and then nurse a baby.  And understand how to work with my body to either delay pregnancy or facilitate pregnancy.  This was a special gift for me and my marriage.  This is something I never would have discovered without the pro-life movement.

After I got married and became a mother, I spent nine-and-a-half years as a stay-at-home mom, or what I like to call a Mommy CEO.  During that time I found ways to continue to share my own empowerment with other women.

We welcomed a teen mother and her baby to live with our family and helped her through the process of getting state support, finding a job, creating budgets, and finding ways to commute to and from her job.  I also mentored single moms who were navigating difficult life situations.  I was also afforded the opportunity to join a local Rachel’s Vineyard team who provided healing retreat weekends for women and 32517222166_e65020f81c_zmen who were struggling after their abortion experience.

It was in the pro-life movement that I was able to navigate this time in my life and get the support I needed to balance taking care of four children, finding childcare to be able to do some of this work, and get the mentoring I needed to figure out how to make this all work.  I felt 100% supported in my decision to give up my career and stay at home with my kids and I also felt encouraged to find ways to continue to empower other women.

Then something terrible happened: my husband, who was the financial supporter of our family, lost his job.  If you have never experienced something like this, let me tell you it is not fun. I experienced the first panic attack I have ever had about a week a fter, when I started thinking about the daunting task of paying bills, buying food, and taking care of our kids with no salary.

In order to work through this time, I started applying for jobs, all kinds of jobs, and if you have ever been a mother who has been out of the workforce you know how hard it is to find a job when you have a nine-year blip in your resume.

Again, it was within the pro-life movement that I was accepted.  It was at Students for
32558270285_8778678580_zLife that I found someone who was willing to take a risk on a woman with a nine-year blip on her resume, four children that I may have to take time off to care for on occasion, and an acceptance that my passion for life could tie us altogether as a team even when I was the oldest person they had ever hired and in a significantly different season of life than they were.

To those at the Women’s March who were told to reject their natural and healthy fertility through birth control pills…

To those who were told to be a feminist you have to reject your amazing ability to conceive and carry a child to term through abortion-on-demand…

To those where were told that women must fit a very specific political mold in order to be accepted…

I am inviting you to a different movement!

Next year, please come to the March for Life and experience what it means to embrace your body for what it was designed for and instead reject hormones and chemicals that can actively harm your body.  Meet women who are walking through different seasons of life and have various social and political beliefs but have stood firm for supporting other women with real, tangible help and resources, and reject the idea that we must fit a specific mold to be accepted by each other.

10 Things Pro-Life Women Saw At The Women’s March

By Reagan Barklage, Midwest Regional Director

As four of us ladies from SFLA spent today unwinding from the Women’s March yesterday, we decided to document 10 of the top things we were told. Gotta love “feminism”



1.“We should start burying our menstrual blood.”
please stop.

2.“MY BODY MY CHOICE!” -from a man
Dude, you’re a dude.

3.“Just wait until you have an unplanned pregnancy, then you will have an abortion. I have seen it happen a million times.”
Make that 57 million times :<

4.“You aren’t welcome here.” -from a man
that’s awkward

5.“I hope you get raped and have to have an abortion”

6.“Have you adopted a kid with AIDS?”
As if you can’t speak out against the injustice of abortion if you haven’t adopted a kid with HIV/AIDS

7.“If you found out the baby was gay you would abort it? Muslim?”
No. We actually are consistently pro-life.

8.“7 out of 10 of you will have an abortion”
I doubt that.

We are women.

Men consistently take birth control…pshhh right.
