Hypocrisy on Broadway

With a cast dominated by actors of color, Hamilton is fighting to highlight the roles of immigrants and minorities in early American politics and in today’s society. Its catchy songs appeal to theater geeks while its historical plot draws in political junkies for an entertaining dance through history. Alas, for a show that rallies for diversity and equality, it’s rather hypocritical that Hamilton’s golden boy, Lin-Manuel Miranda, is advocating for Planned Parenthood, a corrupt organization born out of a racist, eugenics-driven past.

In today’s update of Planned Parenthood’s desperate attempts to scrape even morehamilton money from Americans’ pockets, we have the talented Lin-Manuel Miranda, the writer of the Broadway musical hit Hamilton, offering a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience for a $10 donation to America’s abortion Goliath.

In September 2016, Miranda proudly boasted on Twitter about his mom’s affiliation with Planned Parenthood. Lin-Manual Miranda’s mother, Dr. Luz Towns-Miranda, is on the national board of directors for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. He then encouraged supporters to donate to Planned Parenthood on Giving Tuesday.

And recently, the Broadway star is taking a new angle—bribing Hamilton fans with hotel and air fare, three Hamilton shows, and show paraphernalia. Yup, you too can sell your Hamilton-loving soul with a $10 to $5,000 donation to Planned Parenthood! (Yuck)

Oh this is awkward…

So you know that Planned Parenthood targets minorities, right? No? (Awkwaaaard.) Dear Mr. Miranda, here’s a little wake up call on Planned Parenthood. (I mean, you are fundraising for them, after all.)

But you know what, Lin-Manuel. Maybe racism, deceit, abuse, and death doesn’t turn your stomach? Well, then just take a quick peak at how well Planned Parenthood is going to manage your loyal fans’ money. (Hint: $129.7 million of waste, abuse, and potential fraud. HOORAY!)

We will tell their story

Mr. Miranda, you may refuse to defend those who are the most vulnerable in today’s society. You may refuse tell their story. You may even continue to openly advocate for Planned Parenthood and legalized murder in America. But know this…

This January, over 600,000 people will gather in Washington, D.C. We will gather like we have for 40+ years. The media will barely cover our protest. Broadway won’t sing songs. We will tell the story of 60 million preborn children and their mothers.

And guess what? “When our children tell our story,” they’ll tell of the story of how we abolished abortion in America.

 

Free hotel stay during the March for Life

After hearing about just how life-changing our Students for Life National Conference has been for so many young leaders, one of our long-time supporters just called and offered a generous grant to help us bring more people to our National Conferences than ever before.

Because we all know that staying in DC an extra night for the Students for Life National Conference is one of the biggest expenses you will have.

Here’s what our donor has offered to do:

Any student group (college, high school, youth group) that is coming to the March for Life in Washington and hasn’t registered yet for the Students for Life of America East Coast National Conference can get free hotel housing in Maryland near the conference venue if they register within the next two weeks.

Here’s the catch: We only have enough funds to pay for hotels for one night (so it’s first come, first served) and there will be four people to a room. Further, this awesome new opportunity only applies to student groups (10 people or more) who have never been to the Students for Life National Conference or who haven’t been to our Conference since 2013.

Want to make sure your group can come to our East Coast National Conference on Saturday, January 28th (the day after the March for Life)?

Simply fill out this form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdlQ-aIPL-Yt6bOo2-B5S2B9gxMnqqzZaLVaw95tdbdcam6bw/viewform.

From there, we will send you the link to register for the conference and form to fill out for the free hotel rooms! The registration fee for the conference is only $45 per person and that includes free shuttle rides to and from the metro station, lunch, and dinner – plus, now, a free hotel night!

Check out the amazing, jam-packed schedule for break-out and general sessions featuring Abby Johnson, Josh Brahm, Shawn Carney and more at: www.sflalive.com/schedule.

If you can’t make it out to our East Coast National Conference but want to be at the West Coast National Conference on Sunday, January 22nd, you can register for that event easily at www.sflalive.com. The first 100 to register get 50% off their registration! Use the code: FIRST100

Our time is now.

By Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America

Our time is now.

America has a pro-life majority government. Everything we have been fighting so hard to accomplish these past several years, despite an entrenched abortion lobby and corrupt politicians in Washington — all of this is now possible.

It’s now very easy to imagine a day when Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton will be overturned and when Planned Parenthood, our nation’s abortion Goliath, will be defunded of half a billion dollars in taxpayer money.

This is possible, now. trump1

If

If we, the pro-life generation, hold President-Elect Trump to his promises.

If we hold the Congress and it’s leaders to their numerous pledges.

If we stand united, focused, and motivated.

There is no excuse.

As you know, our mission at Students for Life has never been dependent on what happens in Washington. This victory helps the pro-life movement immensely. This new pro-life majority has it within their reach to pass and enforce the pro-life laws we need until we reach the day our culture fundamentally rejects abortion. We will save more lives.

…but now the real work begins. We have to finish what we started.

We need to ensure that only pro-life Supreme Court justices are appointed, period. We need to fire Planned Parenthood and defund them of our taxpayer dollars, plain and simple.

We need to mobilize like never before and ensure our leaders in Washington will do what they have pledged.

And I’m going to ask you to do some hard things in the next few months and years.

I’m asking you today to trust our team at Students for Life and to believe in our mission to make abortion unthinkable and illegal in our lifetime. For this will be one of my greatest honors to lead you through this fight…the fight of our lives.

While our pro-life generation may be young, we’ve studied under our pro-life predecessors and heroes. We’re organized. We’re united. And we’re prepared. We can do this.

Please, stand with me. There’s so much we need to do.

This is our chance to appoint the justices we need to overturn Roe and Doe. This is our chance to defund and bankrupt the abortion Goliath, Planned Parenthood. This is our chance, the chance of a lifetime, to abolish abortion.

This is our time.

De-Stressing from the Election: Pro-Life Millennials Edition

Pink Fleet Emojis

pinkfleetbanner

There are not many people who see our van and think, “whatever.” 

We usually spark some kind of reaction. Good, bad, weird, you name it. We’ve had it all. 

We’ve seen just about every emoji personified. 

 

We get support:  
1“I agree. Keep it up”

 

 

We get double takes:
2“Wait what!?”


It’s pretty strange to see a large pink van decked out with not so fun facts about Planned Parenthood. Especially when all you know is how ‘great’ Planned Parenthood is. Planned Parenthood spends MILLIONS on branding instead of serving women. Of course that is what you know! Question it!

 

We get confusion:  
3“Is that Planned Parenthood?? … no!?!?”


Sometimes it takes people a while to realize what’s going on. Yes, the van is pink, but Planned Parenthood doesn’t own the color pink.
 

 

We get stares, lots of stares:

4

 

 

As we pull into a gas stations heads turn. Once a lady in the car next to us stared the whole time we were getting gas and snacks. Jaw partly dropped and wide eyes. 

Sometimes it’s easy to forget we are driving a large pink awesome van, but the constant stares are always a good reminder. 

 

We get shy opposition: 
 5

 

Before leaving the University of Pittsburgh a student walked by and began scratching his head. He glanced at us awkwardly a few times before scratching his head with his middle finger. Smooth… He didn’t have the courage to boldly wave the bird. Maybe because he was starting to question his beliefs. 

 

We get road rage: 

8

 

 

On the Pennsylvania Turnpike a driver waved a certain special finger at us. His car swerved into our lane. He doesn’t value the life of the pre-born or our safety! 

 

We get apathy: 

9

 

 

Some people just walk by. They think, “this isn’t my business” and just move on. The truth is abortion IS the largest human rights issue in the WORLD! Killing 3,000 children a day in the US alone is a BIG deal. Yes, it’s your business too. 

 

We even get hit on: 

10

 

 

“I like your slogan” three men shouted flirtatiously at a West Virginia McDonald’s drive-through as three beautiful pro-life women stepped out of the van. First off, McDonalds isn’t the best place to pick up men. Secondly, we are taken. #SorryBoys Thanks for the support though… I guess. 

 

We get money: 

11

 

 

“Do you all take donations?? Here is $20!” One woman yelled as she approached the van in a busy intersection in Cleveland, OH. 

 

But most importantly…

12

 

 

We get conversions:   “Oh, I didn’t know that!”

When you stand on the fence or are bashfully pro-life and you see determined young people proudly driving the Pink Fleet across the county it can be pretty convincing! Planned Parenthood betrays women. #prolifegen

November Event-in-a-Box: Celebrate National Adoption Month

November is National Adoption Awareness month, where we celebrate the courageous mothers, open families, and treasured children all impacted by adoption. This month, we want you to bring the message that adoption saves lives to your school!adoption

Women need to know that if they choose to place their child for adoption, there will be a loving family ready to adopt their precious child. According to a representative w from the National Council for Adoption, “There are parents who wait years to adopt an infant. There are always more parents waiting than infants available to adopt.” This statement contradicts what many women believe. This is a selfless, courageous decision that should be affirmed by her family, friends, and peers.

Foster care is also a crucial part of caring for children who desperately need a home. It’s also another way to go through the adoption system for many parents.

The latest data on foster care indicates that a child enters care every two minutes and there are over 400,000 children in foster care. Half of children in foster care return to their parents but over 40% are adopted by their foster family.

To help combat the common misconceptions about adoption and foster care, your group can spread the truth through hosting a local adoption speaker and raising awareness on your campus. Personal testimonies have the profound ability to break through misinformation that students on your campus may have about adoption.

How  to  use  the  box?

Educate your group

Use one of your group meetings to go over the Adoption Saves Lives Planning Guide. Educate your group on the differences between foster care and adoption, appropriate adoption language, and tabling set up information.

It is incredibly important to use correct adoption terminology. You cannot speak accurately about adoption if you do not have the proper language.

Host a table event

In order to hold a table event, you will need to use the provided tabling materials that come in the box. Obtain butcher paper (any color) from the art department or Students activities center at your school for free roughly 6’ long. Use the provided markers to write “Did you know?” across the top. You can lay this across the top of your table, or tape it on the wall behind your table if one is available.

Make your table fun! Give out cupcakes, candy, and hot chocolate to students who engage with your group at your table. Use the provided “Adoption and foster care” awareness flyers to educate students on the facts. Then, give them a post it to write one fact or statistic that they learned, and stick it to the butcher paper. By the end of the day, your poster will be full of facts and statistics from fellow students.

Be sure to wear your Rock for Life “Adoption saves lives” t-shirts and stickers. Give out the Talk about adoption pins, postcards, info flyers, and wristbands at the table.

If you would like to purchase an Adoption Saves Lives t-shirt, use the included Rock for Life coupon for a great discount on awesome adoption apparel at http://rockforlife.org/.

Host a speaker

As a group, use the Adoption Saves Lives Planning Guide to plan an adoption speaker event. Two weeks before your event, post the adoption speaker flyers (get approved by administration if needed) all around your campus. Give your speaker at least 45 minutes to share and then leave room at the end for the speaker to answer questions. You can use your table event as an opportunity to invite students to the speaker event as well.

100 Abuses of Planned Parenthood

COC-FBBanner

Planned Parenthood celebrates their 100th birthday this month. They are celebrating with champagne toasts, fancy parties, rallies, and lots of other pinked out blowouts. But they don’t deserve any of that. They deserve to be defunded, investigated and prosecuted for the abuses they have committed over the course of their existence.

Instead of celebrating 100 years of strong, we at Students for Life of America have listed below 100 abuses that the abortion giant has perpetrated. Special thanks to Alliance Defending Freedom, Americans United for Life, the Family Research Council, LifeNews, LifeSiteNews, Live Action, and many others who have chronicled the abuses of Planned Parenthood.

Abuses: Planned Parenthood Sells Baby Parts

1. Planned Parenthood has been caught in the sale and trafficking of baby body parts, videos which have been determined to be 100% authentic by an independent forensic analysis report.

2. Planned Parenthood illegally profited from selling the body parts of babies they aborted.

3. Planned Parenthood broke the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, which bans the procedure for the purpose of collecting body parts.

4. Federal law states that the abortion procedure can’t be changed to collect “tissue.” Planned Parenthood broke that law too.

5. An abortionist can’t do an abortion knowing that the patient has consented to fetal tissue donation. Planned Parenthood broke that law as well.

Abuses: Support of Sex-Selective Abortion

6. Planned Parenthood accepts donations for sex-selective abortions, thus committing gendercide of our girls.

7. Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California submitted a letter opposing any kind of sex-selective abortion bans.

8. Planned Parenthood celebrated the failure of a bill banning sex-selective abortions in Louisiana.

9. In 2016, Planned Parenthood opposed PRENDA, the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act.

10. After being caught allowing a sex-selective abortion, Planned Parenthood fired the staffer and then announced they would do an abortion for any reason, even sex-selective, unless outlawed by state law.

11. The director of Planned Parenthood Waterloo Region in Canada said she supported sex-selective abortions even though she may have a harder time “eliminating women.”

12. Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota panned the new law in South Dakota that banned sex-selective abortion.

15. Planned Parenthood accepts donations for race-selective abortions.

16. Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, wanted to “exterminate” the black population and recruit black pastors to help.

17. Planned Parenthood also targets college students: 79% of Planned Parenthood’s are located within five miles of a college campus.

18. The founding of Planned Parenthood is directly tied to the eugenics movement. The movement’s ultimate goal was the elimination of certain groups of “unfit” or “feeble-minded” people.

19. In the 1950’s, Planned Parenthood did unethical experimentation of the early version of the birth control pill on vulnerable women in Puerto Rico without informed consent leading to the deaths of at least three women without recognition or explanation.

21. Susan Thayer, former Planned Parenthood director, testified in an October 2015 Congressional hearing that she filed a federal False Claims Act complaint against Planned Parenthood alleging that it “filed false claims totaling about $28 million with Iowa’s Medicaid program for (1) illegally dispensing “medically unnecessary” quantities of oral contraceptive pills and birth control patches to C-Mail Medicaid patients and doing so without a prescription; (2) fraudulently billing the Iowa Medicaid program for abortion-related services; and (3) coercing “donations” from Medicaid patients.”

22. In 2009, Alliance Defending Freedom released a report that details federal and state audits of Planned Parenthood affiliates from 1995-2009, specifically highlighting Texas, California, Washington, and New York. These audits convey that these individual affiliates were responsible for over $95 million in waste, abuse and potential fraud. Examples include giving prescriptions without authorization from a medical practitioner and misusing government funds to over-bill patients for family planning.

23. Planned Parenthood of California was also accused of overcharging the state and federal governments by $180 million for birth-control pills, despite internal and external warnings that its billing practices were improper.

24. Planned Parenthood defrauded taxpayers in Texas and was ordered to pay over a million dollars in restitution.

25. Planned Parenthood cut ties with five clinics in Florida after one South Florida affiliate was facing allegations of “terrible mismanagement and possibly fraud” related to nearly $450,000.

26. Director of Finance Rene Davis was promoted to Chief Operating Officer after it was revealed at the Planned Parenthood of Southwest Michigan in 2010 that bank statements accumulated for up to six months before being reconciled and personal expenses, like household bills, were paid from that account. She also stole $5,000.

27. Planned Parenthood of the Inland Northwest was found to have overbilled Medicaid more than $629,000 through 2004-2007.

Planned Parenthood was one degree away from the infamous “Mother’s Day Massacre” at Gosnell’s facility in 1972 when the International PP Federation was one of two groups who brought in Dr. Harvey Karman, whose “super coil” late-term abortion device was ultimately tested on 15 poor women who were in their second trimesters, nine of whom suffered serious complications.

52.

54. A medical malpractice case won against Planned Parenthood Golden Gate (“PPGG”) which performed an early first trimester abortion, failing to diagnose a twin pregnancy and aborting only one fetus and part of another. PPGG continued to see the patient and failed to perform pregnancy tests to diagnose her as still pregnant despite the fact that she had symptoms. A late second trimester abortion required the termination of her pregnancy in the fifth month.

Bobcats for Life shows incredible dedication to pro-life activism and education

Bobcats for Life, a new student group at Ohio University, has started off with momentum and will effect change on their campus this coming year.

Kicking off the month of September with an Apologetics 101 training from their SFLA Regional Coordinator, they prepared for their busy month of activism.bobcatsforlife

Just 2 days later, the group put their Apologetics training to use and hit the road to Columbus to participate in “Operation Overpass” and pro-life outreach in downtown.

Following their outreach in Columbus, their focus shifted from activism to education. They gathered together with students to talk about the corrupt leadership of Planned Parenthood and held a “Meet Margaret Sanger” event, in which they educated their peers on the disturbing facts behind the founding of Planned Parenthood.

On September 10, Bobcats for life took to the road once again as they joined SFLA and other organizations in Cleveland Ohio to protest the “All-access” event and Pro-abortion concert led by Sia. These students left at 11am for the Women Betrayed rally in Cleveland, and didn’t get home until 1:30am the next day! Talk about dedication!

Only a few days later, Bobcats for Life invited Created Equal onto their campus to participate in abortion victim image (AVI) outreach, and were met with hostility from their student body. Bobcats for Life stood strong in their defense of the pre-born in the midst of large protests and vicious attacks from one of their peers. Regardless of these attacks, the very next day, group held a resource drive for their pregnancy resource center just outside their local grocery store!

Bobcats for life concluded their month by hosting the SFLA fall tour “The Cycle of Corruption”, educating their peers about the relationship between abortion big business and political corruption. Again, they were met with resistance, but this time from their school administration. Bobcats for Life are determined to spread the pro-life message on their campus, and seem fearless in the face of controversy.

Because of their dedication and passion, we are awarding Bobcats for life at Ohio University SFLA’s September Group of the Month. Keep up the good work!
