Why You Should Start a Group

Young people drive culture. People like us have been vital to the success of almost every social movement over the last few centuries. That’s why it’s up to us to get educated about the crisis of abortion, gather others who want to fight it with us, and take a stand for life.

Creating an official Students for Life group gives you and other pro-life students a place to belong. By organizing a group of people with the same passions and goals, each member has the opportunity to grow and make a difference for life that would not have been possible alone.

We are so much stronger together than we are apart. In short, you can be more efficient in accomplishing the mission when you work together with your peers. An organized group provides legitimacy to the movement in your community, it says that you are here to make a change, and it gives you an opportunity to make your voice heard.

Something we hear from time to time is, “We don’t need a formal group. Our school is pro-life.” That is great! But sadly, it’s probably not true. We work with over 1,250 groups in every state and we have never visited a school without a single pro-choice student. Even if every single student was pro-life, an official pro-life group is still the best way to learn more about abortion, pro-life activism, and leadership in the movement. After all, everything SFLA offers is FREE to Students for Life groups! Even pro-life people need education about the issue so we can change more pro-choice minds.

Abortion is the greatest genocide that our world and our nation have ever known. We believe that a new generation of pro-life leaders must be educated, trained, and equipped with the tools that they need to abolish abortion once and for all. Our generation is the first since the handing down of the Supreme Court cases Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, which legalized abortion on demand in 1973. We are among the first to know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that abortion kills a human person. We must continue this momentum to turn the tide in our lifetime, and that starts with you.
