Can We Abolish Abortion
in our Lifetime?
How is the American pro-life movement doing? What will it take to win? On Eagle Forum Live in December, Phyllis welcomed Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life, to the show.
Kristan Hawkins found a passion for protecting the unborn in high school, where she started her high school’s first pro-life club, as well as the first pro-life club at her college. Hawkins has gone on to help triple the number of campus pro-life groups in the United States.
Kristan pointed out that America’s youth are more pro-life than the previous American generation. She referred to abortion as the greatest human rights tragedy the world has ever known, but she argued that pro-life students – survivors of the abortion holocaust – could end abortion in our lifetime.
Americans born after 1973 should consider themselves abortion survivors — 40% of their peers did not make it out of the womb alive. But when they come to grips with the reality of this evil, many young Americans are motivated to fight it. Hawkins is the author of Courageous: Students Abolishing Abortion in this Lifetime. The book chronicles what Hawkins calls the “real and messy” stories of American young people, their painful experiences with abortion, and their heroism toward ending it.
According to Planned Parenthood, 4 out of every 10 pregnancies in the United States end in abortion. What happened to their claim that they wanted to make abortion “safe, legal, and rare”? Students for Life is busy fighting back — they host national conferences to train pro-life students, serve college women facing unplanned pregnancy, and promote a culture of life on both college and high school campuses.
