Kristan Hawkins Launches ‘The Future is Anti-Abortion’ Speaking Tour, Unpacking Strategy for Post-Roe & Post-Dobbs America

Brenna Lewis - 18 Oct 2021

“Despite efforts by the mainstream media and Big Tech to keep pro-life conversations out of the mainstream, the anti-abortion position is more popular today than ever,” said Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins. “As the most pivotal abortion case since Roe v. Wade kicks off at the Supreme Court, the Pro-Life Generation is all grown up and working in legislatures, on courts, in communities, online, and on the ground to defend Life in Law until Roe v. Wade is consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs. Clear-eyed citizens see the horror of abortion violence and reject it. But too often, university students are desensitized to injustice by ideologies unmoored from science and ethics. I am looking forward to engaging these students in the discussions their professors won’t have.”


WASHINGTON, D.C. (10-18-2021) – This week, Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins launches her Fall Speaking Tour, The Future Is Anti-Abortion: Preparing For A Post-Roe AmericaWith oral arguments in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Supreme Court case quickly approaching, Hawkins will analyze what a post-Roe, post-Dobbs America looks like, and why Americans should be optimistic about a future where more children are welcomed in love and protected in law. Upcoming tour stops include Wellesley College, St. Mary’s College, the University of San Diego, and the University of California, Irvine.

Hawkins’ university speeches have sparked debate in the past, but threats of being canceled do not deter her from stating the fact that The Future Is Anti-Abortion. Hawkins recently stated:

“I know what it’s like to feel silenced and written off as “fringe” for being anti-abortion. But the anti-abortion position anything but fringe. Millennials and Gen Z are trending pro-life.

January polling commissioned by SFLA found that more than 7 in 10 Millennial and Gen Z voters support limits on abortion. About half are opposed to their tax money being used to pay for abortion. Nearly half support banning abortion as early as 6 weeks, when a child’s heartbeat can be detected. By a margin of 57 % to 30 %, Millennials and Gen Z reject Roe v. Wade when they learn the ruling allows for abortion through all 9 months.

“It’s actually the abortion extremists who propagate the media narrative on abortion who are out of touch and fringe. In fact, our polling found that less than 2 in 10 Millennial and Gen Z voters want what is currently the Roe v. Wade status quo: Abortion through all 9 months, for any reason, funded at times by taxpayers. The other 8 in 10 don’t want what the abortion lobby is selling — and that’s why the Future Is Anti-Abortion.”
