ALMOST ABORTED National Pro-Life Messaging Campaign Launches in Times Square, Countering the Defeatism of the Democratic Party’s Abortion Extremism with True Stories  

Kristi Hamrick - 31 May 2024

Pro-Life Generation & Students for Life of America Addresses the Misogynist Advertising & Messaging Generated by the Biden-Harris Administration & Well-Funded Abortion Lobby 

Targeted Campaign Begins First in States with Ballot Initiatives 

“Pro-Life Generation is going on the offense in this election cycle with the ALMOST ABORTED National Campaign launching in Times Square, sharing the stories of those who value life and who rejected the hopelessness of the Biden-Harris late-term abortion agenda,” said Students for Life of America’s Kristan Hawkins. “In Ohio, Kansas, and Kentucky, millions were spent to scare and discourage women, and, in this election cycle, hundreds of millions in ad buys will push misogynistic stories telling women they are not strong enough for life’s challenges. In ALMOST ABORTED, we will illustrate the stories of those willing to take a chance on themselves and their children.”

WASHINGTON D.C. & NEW YORK CITY (05-31-2024) – Pro-Life Generation (PLG) CEO and Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins will anchor a media event in New York City’s Times Square Friday, June 7, at 1 p.m. ET that includes some of those featured in an innovative national messaging campaign — ALMOST ABORTED. The purpose of the multi-state effort is to confront the sales pitch of numerous state ballot initiatives telling women that they are not enough and must vote for late-term abortion – we see their misogyny, and we raise them with hope and a future. The campaign will share a number of stories from those who took a chance on life, even if that meant only welcoming their child for a short time. Also participating at the event will be Tommy Kearns, who, in a viral video conversation with Hawkins, told the story of his adored and aborted daughter, Clementine, and the grief he carries for having no voice as a father to save her life.  

“For men who want a voice in the life and death decisions of abortion, voting pro-life first in 2024 is the only option,” said Hawkins.  

The PLG & SFLA ALMOST ABORTED Campaign begins with a six-figure buy to be featured in Florida, Nebraska, South Dakota, Missouri, and Arizona, as well as the digital billboard in New York’s Times Square. It also includes digital outreach and will be available for sponsorship in other states throughout the campaign cycle.  


LOCATION: West 43rd, between 7th & Broadway 


TIME: 1 p.m. ET 


  • PLG & SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins, whose three of four children have genetic conditions.

“We are coming out on the offense against the Kate Cox strategy, sharing stories that confront the bullying campaigns of the abortion lobby and the Biden-Harris Campaign that continuously pushes abortion as the only option,” said Hawkins.  

MEDIA NOTE: When President Biden pushed Cox’s story at the State of the Union, SFLAction encouraged members of Congress to invite pro-life guests (and some did) and featured an event telling numerous stories from those whose children shared the same condition as Cox’s aborted child, including an appearance from Sen. Rick Santorum.

The ALMOST ABORTED national campaign currently features 14 stories that share how mothers confronted adverse fetal diagnosis, a Down Syndrome and Trisomy 18 diagnosis, unexpected pregnancy, and survivor’s guilt from one who discovered that a missing arm came from an attempted abortion. On the issue of rape, one woman shares the story of being conceived in rape, put up for adoption, and later meeting her birth mother, while another mother talks about how she came to keep her precious child after being raped. The campaign includes stories of those who were pressured to abort and grieving abortion, directly addressing ways to confront what can be painful events.  

In New York City, the digital billboard will feature rotating storylines, including:  

  • I was Raped & Pressured to Abort my Child. Hear My Story at AlmostAborted.Life/Angela. 
  • I have a Deformed Left Arm because an Abortionist Attempted to Abort Me. Hear My Story at AlmostAborted.Life/Josiah. 
  • We were Pressured to Abort our daughter, Faith, because of her abnormality. Hear My Story at AlmostAborted.Life/Faith. 
  • I am the ‘Product of Rape,’ but my life matters. Hear My Story at AlmostAborted.Life/Rebecca 
  • My daughter, Clementine, was aborted despite my pleas. Hear My Story at AlmostAborted.Life/Clementine  

All the content will be available online after the project launch.  

“The Democratic Party and the abortion industry have been propping up the Biden-Harris ticket as well as stumping for extreme late-term abortion ballot initiatives. To try and pull away voters, abortion extremists have invested in the theme that women can’t ‘make it’ without abortion. They sell women short and then sell them an abortion. We want women, girls, and families to know that they are not alone, that they are strong, and that life is worth it,” said Hawkins.
