Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

Baby Saved Through Sidewalk Chalk
By Angela Erickson, SFLA Northern Regional Coordinator
Helping to save lives and make an impact on your campus sometimes
doesn’t take much effort at all. In fact, it can be so simple, fun and
easy yet have a profound impact on someone else’s life.
Lauren Goodale, the president of Promoting the Gift of Life at the
University of Wisconsin Platteville, for example. Her club started two
years ago and just this year they instituted the Pregnant on Campus
Initiative, which seeks to be advocates for pregnant and parenting
students. One easy thing they did to show their support was something
all of us pro-lifers do all the time: sidewalk chalking.
Yesterday Lauren sent me a message that described an encounter she had
with a young woman on campus and her 15 month-old boy. This woman found
herself in an unplanned pregnancy nearly two years ago (when the club
started) and was scared. This is how Lauren described what unfolded:
“[The woman] was scared and facing a lot of uncertainty, but she saw
our chalk on the sidewalks and said she felt so encouraged, supported,
and confident to carry on! I haven’t had anything like that happen
before!” Continue reading-->
Big Win in Fargo
In a huge win for two courageous young pro-life high school students,
Fargo North and Davies High Schools have officially recognized two
Students for Life Clubs organized by pro-life students Brigid O’Keefe
and Katie McPherson. The approval came in response to a demand letter
sent by the law firm of Students for Life of America, the Thomas More
Society, on behalf of the students challenging as unconstitutional the
schools’ denial of the pro-life clubs.
“I am happy and thankful
that the school has approved our club,” said Brigid O’Keefe, a
sophomore at Fargo North High. “We are thankful to the attorneys at
Thomas More Society and to Students for Life of America for supporting
all our efforts. We look forward to educating our fellow students on the
beauty of life at all stages and offering assistance to those in need
in our community. I am grateful to Fargo North for approving Spartans
for Life, and we look forward to creating a thriving club at our

student groups have to find creative solutions to meet the needs of
their pregnant and parenting students on campus. One helpful solution
for bridging the gaps in resources is creating Resident Advisor Kits to
help educate and prepare Resident Advisors to better respond to
pregnant, parenting, and post-abortive students.
Western Washington Students for Life took on Resident Advisor Kits as a
new Pregnant on Campus resources project. Their RA Kit project has
opened up a new conversation on campus about the lack of pregnancy and
parenting resources available to students, and it has provided numerous
opportunities for the Western Washington SFL group to provide
information and resources to departments around campus.
“It seems we’re never quite so eloquent as when we decry the crimes of
past generations, and yet we often become staggering blind when it comes
to facing and rejecting the worst of atrocities in our own time.” -
