Students for Life of America is proud to announce the launch of a new and unique aspect to their successful Pregnant on Campus Initiative: a website specifically designed to help students find pregnancy and parenting resources on their individual campuses. This website also utilizes crowdsourcing and surveying of students and administrators to help post pregnancy resources on the site.
The new website is www.PregnantOnCampus.com.
“Becoming unexpectedly pregnant while in college can be a scary situation for so many women. Over half of abortions are done on women under the age of 25 and many of these students have no idea about the resources available to them on their college campuses to help them stay in school and parent their children, which is why this website is so unique and needed,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of SFLA. “Instead of running to the nearest Planned Parenthood, this website will help pregnant women find resources that are available on their campus right now.”
SFLA is the premier organization helping to organize, educate and equip 800+ pro-life student groups on campuses across the country.
“SFLA’s own research shows that nearly 80% of Planned Parenthood facilities are located within five miles of a college or university. College students are prime targets for the largest abortion provider in the country,” said Hawkins. “No woman should have to choose between continuing her education or having a child, even it was unplanned and unexpected. SFLA has worked with universities across the country to help provide pregnant students on campus a one-stop-shop with all the information they need to keep their child and continue their education.”
As SFLA has found with their Pregnant on Campus program, many students don’t know that they have options for aid and childcare on campus.
“Students for Life groups across the country have been creatively calling attention to the lack of services on college campuses, which results in women seeking abortions,” added Hawkins. “Our student activists are inspired to change campuses to make them welcoming to pregnant women. They are also prepared to help link them to pregnancy help organizations when help isn’t readily available on campus.”
