Since the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decision legalized abortion through all nine months of pregnancy in 1973, abortion has killed an estimated 20 million Black babies— more than the entire American Black population of 1960. Do you want to see change in the Black community? From our music, faith, food, colors, entertainment, and family, Black culture has always had a history of celebrating life. Somewhere along the way, we bought into a lie that we need abortion to succeed, and this has taken root in our community. Now is the time to spark life–affirming changes to your Historically Black College or University (HBCU). Let us go back to celebrating Black life. It can start with you.
The steps to starting an officially recognized student group at an HBCU campus is the same as other campuses, and the step-by-step instructions can be found here. The difference when you start a Students for Life group at an HBCU Campus is that you are provided with special and personalized mentorship from Students for Life of America’s (SFLA) Minority Outreach Coordinator, Toni McFadden, in addition to access to your SFLA Regional Coordinator.

My name is Toni McFadden, and I am the Students for Life Minority Outreach and Healthy Relationships Director. I would love the opportunity to connect with you about how to change your campus to one that will Celebrate Black Life. I am also available to come and speak on your campus to have a real, honest conversation about the history and the effects of abortion on the Black community.
