Kristan Hawkins, President of SFLAction/SFLA, commented: 

Students for Life is the nation’s pro-life grassroots mobilizer, and we have spent the last 16 years growing the pro-life army and infrastructure that uniquely equip us to spearhead the pro-life presence at the Supreme Court in anticipation of the Justices’ ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson. Students for Life will organize and mobilize the pro-life presence at the Court before, during, and after the Court’s next opinion day (Monday, May 16). No matter when the Dobbs decision is handed down, Students for Life will be there to make the voices of the Pro-Life Generation heard.

Polling indicates that people are ready for a voice and a vote on abortion.  

From SFLA’s website: “Limiting abortion policy choices to the few desired by those in power is not popular with Millennials and Gen Z, now about one-third of the electorate. Recent polling by Students for Life of America’s Demetree Institute for Pro-Life Advancement indicates that ‘an astonishing 8 in 10 want to vote on abortion policy in their states – UP from 66% last year.’ In addition, ‘(w)hen considering how devalued people have been treated historically by those in power, 65% of Millennials and Gen Z did not support allowing people in power to decide who is fully human and deserving of legal rights.’” 

SFLA and Students for Life Action (SFLAction) have been a consistent presence on the ground in front of the Supreme Court on decision days, waiting for the Dobbs v. Jackson decision. SFLA activists were also recently assaulted by abortion supporters and a BLM spokesperson while counter protesting a pro-Roe rally.
