Students for Life of America Trains 200,000th Student as Plans to Rally the Youth Vote Take Center Stage During 2024 Election

Kristi Hamrick - 19 Apr 2024

“The numbers don’t lie: Gen Z and Gen Y are becoming disenchanted with abortion extremism,” said Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins. “The fact that we’ve doubled our students trained in four years, especially during Biden’s reckless No Test, Online Distribution of Chemical Abortion Pills, is a testament to the power of on-the-ground activism and effective abortion education and training available from the Pro-Life Generation at SFLA. There is a sizable percentage of young voters who reject the Democratic Party’s support for abortion through all nine months along with their embrace of dangerous Chemical Pill Distribution as a payback to donors like those at Planned Parenthood.”  

MEDIA ADVISORY: Stay tuned for our National Celebrate Life Weekend, SATURDAY, JUNE 22, at the Lincoln Memorial part of a weekend of pro-life activism.  

WASHINGTON D.C. (04-19-2024) –Students for Life of America (SFLA) celebrates another milestone: training our 200,000th student at Kristan Hawkins’ “No Abortion, No Exceptions” Spring 2024 Campus Speaking Tour in Florida. At the event, Hawkins personally trained Mia Atkins, a member of Florida International University Students for Life, part of efforts to educate and equip students to change hearts and minds on college campuses, in political activism, and in the culture at large. The accomplishment is more than simply watching a video or filling out a form. SFLA’s unique programming develops students into leaders, which is pivotal given the role the Youth Vote is expected to play in states where the margins are razor thin.

“It’s one thing to be pro-life – it’s another thing to act on it. We equip our students with the knowledge, tools, and tactics to engage in meaningful conversation about abortion wherever they are, whether it’s school, work, or the grocery store,” said Hawkins. “As we approach a contentious election with abortion at the center, we’re excited to celebrate our accomplishments and strategize at the National Celebrate Life Weekend in June and continue to train the Pro-Life Generation.”
