MEDIA ADVISORY: Students for Life Action (SFLAction) and Students for Life of America (SFLA) are mobilizing at the Supreme Court on Monday the 23rdto amplify pro-life voices anticipating the reversal ofRoe v. Wade.

Roe v. Wade turned 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.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (05-22-2022) –In anticipation of the Supreme Court’s potentialruling on Dobbs v. Jackson, Students for Life Action (SFLAction) and Students for Life of America (SFLA) will be mobilizing at the Supreme Court MONDAY and organizing a rally with multiple pro-life leaders. At the Supreme Court beginning at 9:30 a.m. ET, Pro-life leaders and activists will be outside the court’s barrier, available for some comment and B-roll. However, if a decision takes place, leaders will walk to the Heritage Foundation at 214 Massachusetts Ave NE for a news conference to react to the ruling.  

SFLA Executive Vice President Tina Whittington will emcee the event to include speakers from SFLA/SFLAction along with Heritage Action for America, Concerned Women for America, Stanton International, and Liberty Counsel. Other groups will be added as confirmed. 

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. Jacksondecision, despite the rise in violence from the supporters of abortion violence. SFLA activists were also recently assaulted by abortion supporters and a BLM spokesperson while counter protesting a pro-Roerally, and on May 14th, SFLA counter-protested abortion rallies all over the nation.

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. 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.’”
