SFLA President Kristan Hawkins to Speak at Western Conservative Summit

Martin Luther King, Jr., contrasted two kinds of peace: “negative peace which is the absence of tension” with “positive peace which is the presence of justice.” Let us make a decision to seek the ‘positive peace,’ demanding justice for women and the preborn. Let us stand for innocent children and alongside their mothers, getting to work to ensure No Woman Stands Alone in a Post-Roe America. And let us never settle for the ‘negative peace’ of inaction.

DENVER, C.O., and WASHINGTON, D.C. (06-03-22) – TODAY, Students for Life Action and Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins will speak at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado.

In her speech, Hawkins will lay out the strategy for making abortion not only unavailable, but also unthinkable in a Post-Roe America.

Western Conservative Summit

Hawkins has written extensively on the rapidly changing abortion landscape in America as the Supreme Court weighs whether to reverse the deadly precedent of Roe v. Wade

At Newsweek, Hawkins writes that when the Supreme Court steps back, “(t)his pending power shift away from the judicial branch of government to the executive and legislative branches will result in key changes for abortion policy and activism… Chemical abortion legislation, along with heartbeat and life-at-conception bills, will gain prominence in state houses as legislators begin to address the reality of abortion today—the loss of lives early in pregnancy … Going forward, the issue is not whether we will still be debating abortion, but where. New opportunities for abortion policy are emerging, especially in communities nationwide.”
