DESPITE PROTESTS, KRISTAN HAWKINS WILL ADDRESS UNIVERSITY OF SAN DIEGO ON ‘THE FUTURE IS ANTI-ABORTION’ SPEAKING TOUR, UNPACKING STRATEGY FOR POST-ROE & POST-DOBBS AMERICA
“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.”
SAN DIEGO, C.A. (11-10-2021) – On Thursday, Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins will bring her Fall Speaking Tour, The Future Is Anti-Abortion: Preparing For A Post-Roe America, to the University of San Diego (USD). Pro-abortion students at USD have attempted to counter Hawkins’ presence with posters claiming abortion is a “human right.” One student was caught on camera tearing down flyers advertising Hawkins’ talk and when caught, throw the shredded posters at a pro-life student. Despite the backlash, Hawkins has no plans to cancel her tour stop.
USD is just one of the latest in a slew of campuses – many of them Christian and Catholic – attacking not only the pro-life worldview, but also pro-life displays and even pro-life students themselves. These include:
- Vandalizations and personal insults at the Catholic St. Louis University, where a cross-shaped memorial was displayed for children killed in abortion violence
- Students at a Catholic high school in San Franciscodisruptively walking out of a pro-life presentation en masse
- Confrontation at the University of Texas at San Antonio, where a pro-abortion student smacked, spit on, and cyberbullied peaceful pro-life demonstrators
- Vandalism an physical confrontation at Winona University and the University of Oklahoma
- Vandalisms and confrontation by pro-abortion students at Eastern Washington University and Catholic school Gonzaga University
Hawkins faced similar backlash at Wellesley Collegeahead of her tour stop there last month. Students protested and even made threats of violence, though the event proceeded as planned, and pro-abortions ultimately appeared to shift their position on abortion as a result.
During her speech at USD, Hawkins will outline the Pro-Life Generation’s plan for a Post-Roe and Post-Dobbs America – including SFLA’s massive campaign raising awareness of nonviolent abortion alternatives, community support systems, and policy changes needed to help women and families thrive and stop the abortion industry from preying upon them. Hawkins is known for sparking debate and backlash on university campuses when she states unapologetically that she seeks to abolish abortion and reverse Roe v. Wade. Hawkins will prepare the audience for the upcoming Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Supreme Court case which will potentially impact abortion laws nationwide.
