In just the fall 2011 semester alone, our team at Students for Life of America has managed to make a significant dent in pro-abortion culture on campuses across the nation – and we have the numbers to prove it.
In just four short months, our Field Team, along with members of our Pregnant on Campus Initiative and Medical Students for Life division, have traveled from coast to coast, organizing, building, and revitalizing student groups to nourish pro-life culture among college-aged students and to provide necessary resources, trainings and workshops to foster a supportive environment for pro-lifers.
Students for Life ended the Fall semester with a total tally of 678 active student groups that work with us, including 52 new groups we have helped start. We currently serve groups in 49 states and equipped pro-life students with leadership skills at 42 trainings in 16 states last fall.
In addition, our team visited 118 campuses in 21 states last semester, and our Medical Students for Life division founded 3 new campus groups to round out our total of 27 Med SFL groups in 17 states.
Our Pregnant on Campus Initiative that begun in July of 2011 was revitalized after the death of our dear friend and former PonC Coordinator, Jon Scharfenberger, and we were able to successfully welcome 19 pro-life campus groups into the initiative. We were also successful in establishing 28 high school and homeschool pro-life student groups last fall.
We look forward to continuing our successful efforts in the latter half of the academic year and working to abolishing abortion with this generation!
