Anti-Abortion Leader Kristan Hawkins to Keynote IGNITE Rally Prior to Pro-Life March in Topeka 

Roe v. Wade might be turning 49, but we won’t see it turn 50 as it is,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “Students for Life of America was founded as a Post-Roe organization, ready to protect life in law and in service in all 50 states. We’ve got a post-Roe plan, and we’re training the next generation of Pro-Life leaders to ensure that the children who will be born will have all our support.” 

TOPEKA, K.S., & WASHINGTON, D.C. (01-24-22) – On Tuesday, January 25, the week of the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade being handed down by the Supreme Court, SFLAction/SFLA President Kristan Hawkins will speak to young people at the Archdiocese of Kansas City’s IGNITE Youth Rally before they march in the Kansans for Life March and Rally. Hawkins will focus her remarks on the strategy for the Post-Roe America and how placing Kansas’ Value Them Both Amendment on the ballot for August, 2022, is a key milestone on the road to an abortion-free country.  

Roe v. Wade might be turning 49,” said Hawkins, “but we won’t see it turn 50 as it is.” She continued: “Students for Life of America was founded as a Post-Roe organization, ready to protect life in law and in service in all 50 states. We’ve got a post-Roe plan, and we’re training the next generation of Pro-Life leaders to ensure that the children who will be born will have all our support.” 

Students for Life Action and Students for Life of America played a role in paving the way toward Kansas’ upcoming public vote on the Value Them Both state constitutional amendment by urging Kansans to Vote Pro-Life First. The Amendment, when passed, will restore to the people of Kansas the power to protect the tiniest Kansans from the violence of abortion. The Value Them Both Amendment vote will be the first pro-life ballot initiative to take place after the Supreme Court of the United States hands down a ruling on the Dobbs v. Jackson case — the first case reconsidering the constitutionality of Roe in twenty years.  

Hawkins is joining crowds in Topeka following a historic memorial of the 49th anniversary of Roe in Washington, D.C. which included holding SFLA’s sold-out National Pro-Life Summit featuring former Vice President Mike Pence and training nearly 2,000 members of the Pro-Life Generation for the post-Roe battle ahead.

Students for Life Action (SFLAction), a 501c4, along with its 501c3 sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA), make up the nation’s largest pro-life youth organization and a political and policy operation engaging people of all ages. Together they work to end abortion — the human rights issue of our day — and provide political, legal, and community support for women and their children, born and preborn. Headquartered in Fredericksburg, VA, SFLA has more than 1,250 groups on middle, high school, college, university, medical, and law school campuses in all 50 states. SFLA creates strategy, policy, and programming to connect those most targeted for abortion with people ready to help and builds a framework for political engagement on their behalf. SFLA and SFLAction have more conversations with those most targeted by the abortion industry than any other pro-life outreach in the world, reaching more than 2 million people across social media platforms each week and engaging in approximately 100,000 digital conversations per month. Over the last 16 years, President Kristan Hawkins has grown SFLAction/SFLA into an $18 million organization preparing for a Post-Roe America.
