Across the country, the discussion of what life will look like when Roe v. Wade is reversed has increasingly become a topic of debate. If Roe is overturned, abortion supporters argue that women will be left uncared for in their pregnancies. However, they couldn’t be more wrong because the pro-life movement is already deeply caring for preborn children and women, and we have no plans to stop. An excellent example of this is one of our Students for Life of America (SFLA) fellows who is showing Michigan that the pro-life movement is ready to support pregnant and parenting mothers.
Leading up to Thanksgiving last year, Adeline, a Thaddeaus Stevens Fellow and President of her SFLA group, organized a food, clothing, and supplies drive for the local pregnancy resource center. She was inspired by her high school’s food drive for a food pantry, and she decided to take a similar approach with a pro-life emphasis.
Adeline received enough donation materials to fill a GMC Suburban full of diapers, baby formula, wipes, baby clothes, and more. That’s about 140 cubic feet of resources that was supplied to their pregnancy resource center to give to women in need. That’s a crazy amount that proves communities are pitching in to help women in unplanned pregnancies even now.
When asked about her group’s drive for the pregnancy resource center, Adeline stated, “We wanted to incorporate pro-life values and support for the pregnancy resource center into the Thanksgiving charity efforts my school usually does. The event sparked conversations about the importance of supporting expectant mothers and how we can contribute to these efforts within our community.”
Adeline’s fellowship with Students for Life of America helped her understand the needs of pregnant and parenting women and how to meet those needs—and that can be you, too.
