Group of the Month: Linn Benton Students for Life

Oftentimes, students ask if it is possible to start and grow a pro-life student group at a community college, and the answer is YES. This month’s Group of the Month is a courageous pro-life group from Linn-Benton Community College of Albany, Oregon.

Linn-Benton Students for Life are committed to “promoting respect for life at LBCC and in the surrounding community, educating on life issues, and helping those in need so life is a promising choice.” This March, Linn-Benton Students for Life hosted SFLA’s What Has Roe Done for Us? Display, thereby educating their campus about the risks of the abortion and the aftermath of Roe v. Wade. A week before the Roe display, they hosted a panel of post-abortive women, which set the stage perfectly for the display by sharing the powerful stories of women in their community.

Pro-Life & Pregnant: Lessons from an Unplanned Pregnancy

by: Jillian, a Students for Life group member

I came to college with a mission. I was a Jesus-lovin’, baby-savin’, praise-music-beltin’ Mother Teresa in training. Of course, I was na├»ve and a little silly, but my intention was to share the joy that had blossomed in my heart with a world that desperately needs it. Though I’ve matured and mellowed, I still want to do just that. But, you know, a little less… jangly.

About 30 seconds into freshman year, I found the college’s pro-life club and signed up. By my sophomore year, I was the president. I think that this is due more to accidents of circumstance than my administrative ability, but it was a position that I relished and a cause that I cared about deeply. My now-husband and I spent our free time together doing pro-life work, performing praise and worship music for college events, and playing intramural sports. I got good grades, I didn’t have a drink until I was 21, and I served as an officer of various honor societies, clubs and councils.

And then, I got pregnant -->
