Historic First Amendment Victory!

Yesterday, the University of Alabama apologized to the pro-life group on campus, Bama Students for Life, and reversed their decision after they removed Bama SFL’s approved student display on campus because an administrator deemed it “offensive.” The University stated that will allow Bama Students for Life to set up their pro-life display on campus once again.

Bama Students for Life and Students for Life of America thank the University of Alabama officials for rethinking their decision and allowing pro-life students to openly express their First Amendment and free speech rights on campus.

While we are grateful that university officials reversed their position and apologized to Bama Students for Life, it is a stark reminder that pro-life speech and the First Amendment continue to be under attack on America’s universities and colleges. I commend Bama Students for Life for refusing to be intimidated into surrendering their First Amendment rights and standing up to ensure their thoughts and beliefs would be freely heard at the University of Alabama.”

'Tiny Blue Lines'

For those of you who have read our stories of young student moms, many of you will remember the story of Chaunie Brusie, who became a mother as a 21-year-old senior in college. Since giving birth to her daughter, Ada, Chaunie has courageously embraced her motherhood, and she has used her story to inspire and encourage other young women experiencing unplanned pregnancies.

But that’s not all! Chaunie just published a book!

In her new book, Tiny Blue Lines, Chaunie once again shares her story and details her journey into motherhood. Throughout the book, she offers snip-its of her own life experiences as well as testimonies from other young women. The stories are honest reflections of young motherhood.

Moreover, it offers helpful resources for understanding your new pregnancy and moving forward as a mother and a student.
