pregnant on campus you are strongby Kelli

Often the message she hears is: Have an abortion or drop out of school….

For her and her child’s future and well being, our goal should be to make sure she graduates…. [A] child born into poverty is seven times more likely to live in poverty his or her whole life.

… Colleges aren’t naturally pregnancy/parenting friendly…. We can change that culture and help women and their babies through this program.

The pressure on a pregnant student to abort her child is enormous — she could be getting pressure from her family, her friends, her partner, her professors. She absolutely needs to know that abortion is not her only option and that there are caring people on campus who really want to help her.

~ Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins, discussing the group’s new Pregnant on Campus initiative, as quoted by National Review Online, December 8
