It’s no surprise pro-life students have been hard at work this last year on their campuses helping women in crisis pregnancies and promoting the pro-life agenda but we just got some great news from our students: during this past school year of 2013-2014, pro-life students reported over 50 BABIES saved from abortion!
We are so proud of these students and how they have worked so hard this year to save babies from abortion and assist hundreds of women in their work on campuses and in their communities. While this number does not include all of the lives saved by the more than 830 Students for Life groups across the nation, we wanted you to see some of the highlights of our work together.
OAKLAND UNIVERSITY (MI)
Students for Life at Oakland University was struggling to get students to join their prayer efforts in front of their local abortion facility. However, all of that changed when a mother and daughter saw the students outside of the facility: Here’s the story:
“We have been praying every Friday morning at our local abortion facility. And it is like pulling teeth trying to get students to come but for some reason we had 6 students with us this week. After an hour and a half, a girl and her mother pulled up next to us in their car. They were leaving the facility. The mother told us that her daughter has been praying for some kind of sign that she shouldn’t go through with her abortion. When they arrived at the facility and saw us praying, she took that as her sign. The girl leaned out of the car and shouted at us, ‘I’m choosing Life.’ It was beautiful! This happened to us last week as well when another young lady walked into the facility sobbing. She avoided us completely but after 15 minutes, she walked out and thanked us. Smiling, she said, ‘I’m keeping her!’ We have been praying at this facility for over a year now and have never experienced all of this!”
CLEMSON UNIVERSITY (SC)
Clemson Students for Life held a prayer vigil in front of their local abortion facility. During that one hour, 2 women chose life for their babies!
LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY
LSU Students for Life sidewalk counsel every day of the week in front of their local abortion facility. This courageous team of students is responsible for many baby saves, thanks to their persistent efforts. In the Fall of 2013, they saved at least 5 babies and in the Spring of 2014, they reported 4 more!
LANE COMMUNITY COLLEGE (OR)
While handing out recruitment flyers for their Students for Life group on campus, members of Students for Life met a pregnant student who was concerned about parenting while in college. The group presented the young mother with their resource brochures. After finding out all that was available to her, the pregnant student chose Life. Soon after, she learned that she was carrying twins!
