Students For Life of America Counters Abortion Activists’ Summer of Rage with Summer of Service

The following is from an email blast sent from Kristi Hamrick, the chief media and policy strategist for Students for Life of America.

Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins reported an increase of violence displayed against the Pro-Life Generation who peacefully sought to counter protest the ‘Bans Off Of Bodies’ rallies recently. Abortion protestors took direction from Women’s March President, Rachel Carmona, who said, “For the women of this country, this will be a summer of rage.”  

Destroyed and stolen property, racial slurs, derogatory insults, swarming intimidation, taunting, and screaming profanities at the Pro-Life Generation were all behaviors fanned by incendiary pro-abortion rhetoric and the abortion lobby’s frantic response to the likely reversal of Roe v. Wade. SFLA is witnessing how the “summer of rage” is quickly turning into a summer of pro-abortion violence; falling short on any promise to help women. 

Writing at FOX, Hawkins observed: “Historically speaking, an uptick in violence perpetrated by the ‘losing side’ of a civil or human rights battle is an observable trend. In the 72 years of the women’s suffrage movement, notable violence did not occur towards the suffragists until near the end of their hard-fought battle when 33 women were imprisoned, beaten, and force-fed. The turning point of emancipation of enslaved African Americans was met with extreme violence from pro-slavery Americans – not to mention the literal war that preceded Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation … Hopefully, for the safety of all involved, violence from abortion supporters peaked with Roe’s reversal.”

“I was a firsthand witness to the hostility and hatred of the abortion lobby,” said Campaign for Abortion Free Cities St. Paul Community Organizer Ellisha Olson. “Despite checking off all the boxes which [abortion advocates] claim to protect—minority, female, sexual assault survivor—I was dehumanized and treated like “trash” merely because I believe life is sacred, and women deserve better than abortion.”   

Olson recalled the Caucasian girls who screamed racist insults at her and her friend of South-Asian descent. The two women of color were called “white trash,” “white supremacists,” and were told they were “ugly and useless” by the intolerant abortion activists. Even the African American security guard tasked with protecting pro-lifers at the rally was verbally attacked as one Caucasian man yelled, “Black men don’t matter.” Captured in the audio, pro-abortion attendees tell Olson, “I wish you were aborted,” among other derogatory slurs.   

From flagrant attempts to belittle or intimidate pro-lifers whether it be knocking phones out of their hands to covering their signs, it’s clear the abortion lobby is unhinged. In response, SFLA will continue to expose their violent outbreaks and utilize the summer to continue serving parenting moms with the forthcoming live, virtual event entitled Standing With Her Sunday. The August national event will equip church leaders and members on how to respond and meet the needs of moms with non-violent pregnancy resources. 

Standing With Her Summer, a digital and physical pledge which will be distributed online, as well as at dozens of Christian festivals this summer. After pledging to stand with women in unplanned pregnancies, participants will receive information via email on how to be active in the pro-life movement and serve women and their children.

BILLBOARD CAMPAIGN LAUNCHING: In addition, SFLA’s initiatives, the Campaign for Abortion Free Cities and Standing With You, will be working in accord to create a pro-life billboard campaign this summer to advertise non-violent resources in cities for pregnant and parenting mothers. SFLA will be launching billboards in up to five cities by June 1 and rolling out more through the summer. The initial buy will be in Naples, FL; Sacramento, CA; Denver, CO; Tacoma, WA; and Dallas, TX. You can see the billboards here.
