This past weekend, The Pro-Life Generation gathered together in Washington D.C. for what some call the “pro-life Super Bowl.” Students for Life of America (SFLA) and Students for Life Action (SFLAction) team members and students participated in the National Pro-Life March, visited Capitol Hill, and hosted the National Pro-Life Summit, the largest training event for the pro-life movement in America. In case you missed it, here’s what the media had the say about this pro-life weekend:
“Ony Otiocha, a 20-year-old college student at North Carolina State University and the president of the campus’ Students for Life group, believes life begins at conception and men should have a voice in abortion policy…”
“A lot of people have been saying, ‘We need to stay local, because the decision has been returned to the states,’” said Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life, according to The Washington Post. She added that the pro-life movement still has a lot of work to do at the federal level and emphasized the importance of the 2024 elections which will determine who takes the White House and which party controls Congress.”

“The pro-life generation knows when November 2024 comes around there’s only going to be one option,” said Kristan Hawkins, president of the influential anti-abortion group Students for Life.
“The thing about President Trump is that he’s a man that prides himself on making his deals and keeping his deals,” Ms Hawkins said. “He made a deal with the pro-life movement in 2016 and I’m holding him to that deal.”

“Today is a special March for me as my oldest child, Gunner, and my mom, Marla, are here with me. Gunner and my Mom were last year in utero when I was nine months pregnant with him and she was chasing me around telling me to stop carrying heavy boxes of signs,” Hawkins posted.
“Today, my prayer is that Gunner’s life will be transformed like so many tens of thousands of young people, and he learns our family business is abolishing abortion.”

“I support any candidate who will pledge to stand with us, at minimum, to sign a national heartbeat protection law if that goes to their desk,” said Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life of America, to the DCNF, who also identified efforts to curb chemical abortion pills as a priority. Laws that ban abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected have been enacted by several states, and effectively prohibit abortion after five to six weeks of pregnancy.”
