Students for Life of America Gets a New Member

A letter from Students for Life of America:

“Dear Friend,

I’m thrilled to announce that Students for Life’s President, Kristan Hawkins gave birth yesterday, May 14th, to her 4th child and 1st daughter, Gracie Jane Hawkins! Both Kristan and Gracie are doing well!

She is so cute that we wanted to send you a picture of her!

Like the pro-life activist she is, Kristan asked our team to make a special “I am the Pro-Life Generation” baby onesise for Gracie to wear after she was born, so of course she took it with her to the hospital 😉

While Kristan is taking a couple of weeks off to heal and adjust to life with four little ones, our team is going to be going full-steam ahead.

This year, we’ve been incredibly fortunate to work with many young moms in crisis on college campuses and help them choose life.

Friend, in honor of Gracie’s birth, can you chip in and make a $14 gift right now to Students for Life’s Pregnant on Campus Initiative which trains our 838+ Students for Life groups across the nation on how to reach women in crisis and help them choose life?

For every gift of $14 or more we receive, SFLA is going to send one of our brand-new “I am the Pro-Life Generation” onesises to a courageous student leader who chose life this school year.

Thank you for all of your generous support of our mission to abolish abortion in our lifetime, one campus, one student, and one young mother at a time.

Please keep both Gracie and Kristan in your prayers!

Blessings,

Tina Whittington
Executive Vice President
Students for Life of America”

The Poison of Pain Capable Legislation

Personhood Alabama

Earlier this year, the US House of Representatives attempted to vote on a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of gestation.  This bill had several flaws in it and received opposition from several personhood groups until it was eventually pulled from the calendar.  Now, a revised version of this bill has been proposed by Representative Trent Franks (R) of Arizona.  This new bill still has many of the flaws contained in the previous bill, but now some personhood organizations are saying that it would be a good bill if just the rape and incest exceptions were removed.

Members of Personhood Alabama may have noticed several e-mails and facebook postings from personhood groups in other states and even from the national Personhood Alliance urging us to contact our representatives and ask them to remove the rape and incest exceptions from this bill.  In light of these requests I would…

U.S. House of Representatives Passed the Pain Capable Abortion Ban!

npla_hdrAccording to the National Pro-Life Alliance:

“Just minutes ago, thanks to the pressure of NPLA members and other pro-lifers, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Pain Capable Abortion Ban by a vote of 242 to 184!

Now the fight will continue in the U.S. Senate where it is sure to face intense opposition from the abortion lobby.

But forcing any vote on protecting unborn babies capable of feeling pain throughout their entire bodies is a clear political winner.

In addition to saving thousands of lives each year, every vote on this bill exposes pro-abortion politicians as the radicals they are for refusing to support any restrictions on abortion-on-demand.

And thanks to the pro-life advances in the last election, you and I have never been better positioned to force a vote on late-term abortions.

So if you haven’t already, please sign the petition to your two U.S. Senators and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell” by clicking the link below:.
