Hurry – The T.A.L.K. Challenge is Almost Over!

Lori Cascio | June 30, 2020
At the beginning of this school year, we set out to have 250,000 conversations about abortion. The COVID-19 pandemic threw a big curveball at us, but we still managed to have tens of thousands of heart-changing conversations as part of this T.A.L.K. Campaign. The T.A.L.K. Campaign formally ends tonight, June 30th, at midnight… but we couldn’t wait to share some student stories! Here

Mary Briganti | June 12, 2020
  This year, I was one of the 20 other college students across the country who were chosen for the William Wilberforce Fellowship. I had a group of 19 to encourage me, back me up, and support me. Doing pro-life activism can be hard and the opposition can be very cruel, but these other students always had my back and

Pro-Life High School Student Gives Out Fully Stocked Diaper Bags to Pregnant Peers in Need

Mary Briganti | June 11, 2020
  Going into the SFLA Fellowship program, I was looking for a group of like-minded pro-life student activists, a support system within the pro-life movement, and individual leadership growth. What I didn’t realize at the time is that I would get all that and more! I live in an upper middle class area with a well to do school and

Mary Briganti | June 10, 2020
  In January of 2019, I heard about SFLA’s Fellowships and was instantly interested in learning more.

Two years ago, she became pregnant. She didn’t know what to do. Her baby’s father was pressuring her into getting an abortion.

Mary Briganti | June 9, 2020
  This past fall, as our school’s Students for Life group began to plan our diaper drive event, we knew we wanted to provide resources to local parents in need.  So we set our sights on the national high school diaper drive record: 41,000 diapers.   We began by talking to teachers around the school, asking them to consider incentivizing their students to bring in diapers for the drive. We asked

Students for Life Helped 20 Mothers Choose Life This School Year!

Brenna Lewis | June 4, 2020
Most of the time, pro-life advocates will never know the full impact of our efforts. A pro-choice person might change their mind about abortion because of a video we shared, or a pregnant mom might drive right past the abortion facility and never show up to her appointment because she saw a message of hope from someone standing on the

Stephanie Stone | May 11, 2020
On May 7th, 2020 a small group of pro-life student leaders came together to witness outside of Planned Parenthood of Baltimore. That morning, the five of us met on Howard Street in Baltimore, chalk and life-affirming resources in hand, our masks and gloves on, and an uncertainty with what to expect, given all that has been going on.   As I drove through
