As pro-lifers fight to Save the Hyde Amendment, Students for Life of America and Democrats for Life will tag team to hold rallies across the nation to convince elected officials to incline the life saving amendment in the new fiscal budget.
This Friday, July 9th, a rally will be held outside of Rep. Brendan Boyle’s office in Rhawnhurst section of Philadelphia. Rally begins at 11:00 am.
The following is from Tina Whittington, the Vice President of Students for Life of America.
I need you to SAVE THE DATE for our 2022 National Pro-Life Summit in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, January 22, 2022.
This one-day training event for grassroots pro-life activists of all ages saw a record-breaking crowd, selling out at over 3,400 attendees in January 2020.
As you know, we had to replace the 2021 National Pro-Life Summit with our National #Stand4Life Weekend that we hosted in 18 cities across the country and online with more than 63,000 pro-lifers joining us!
But today, I am thrilled to announce that the National Pro-Life Summit is BACK for 2022 and will be better than ever!
While we’ll be revealing the theme of the 2022 National Summit at a later date, what I can tell you right now is all the benefits of attending, like…
Explore and strengthen your personal calling for Life
Become energized to protect the preborn and their mothers
Learn how to engage in the culture more effectively
Strategize with other pro-life youth and adults from communities across the nation
Meet and hear from dozens of experts in the pro-life movement
More details are to come, but you can sign up here to stay in the loop about all Summit-related announcements and updates.
We will sell out again this year…so, trust me, you’ll want to be among the first to know when registration goes live.
I hope you’ll consider joining me, the rest of the Students for Life team, and 3,000+ of your closest pro-life friends in January!

Enjoy some of the photos from yesterday’s event. Nearly 200 people came out to give witness to life, many were from Students for Life, sporting a purple knit hat that read: “Pro Life Generation” across their foreheads.

In addition to the day outside of Planned Parenthood, learn why I still made the trip to DC for the March for Life, despite the restrictions and the switch to virtual.
As the nation will witness history to be made early next week, Students for Life have made stops in ten different cities urging senators to vote yes to fill the vacant Supreme Court seat.
Fifteen students from across the nation, led by PA coordinator Liana Hollendonner, held a peaceful rally outside of Senator Bob Casey’s Center City office, urging for his vote on the right side of history.
Unfortunately, it is likely that Casey will not carry out his father legacy as he has done since being elected to the U.S. Senate in 2006.
Following the mini rally, the students chalk up messages in support of Amy Coney-Barrett. However, they were met with some threats by a security guard. After conferring with Cicil Affairs, the students were permitted to chalk on the public sidewalk.
Friday’s rain showers could not dampen the support for the special pro-life Sidewalk Day in front of the Planned Parenthood in Warminster. Tucker Brown, a St. Charles seminarian, coordinated a Students for Life of America (SFLA) prayerful assembly in the hopes of showing support for the pro-life message, not only for the mothers entering into the abortion center, but also for anyone driving by. We saw more than a few thumbs up from drivers!
The agenda included private prayer, live Christian music and presentations offered by Tucker Brown, Father Paschal Onunwa of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church and Patrick Stanton.
Though this was termed as a Students for Life day at PP, there were toddlers, seniors and everyone in between professing their support for LIFE!.
Thank you to all the speakers, musicians, all those who attended and in particular Tucker for coordinating this event. Seeing a younger group of people willing to lead such events is so encouraging!
Reminder: The monthly Bucks County Life Chain for August is scheduled for Friday, August 7th, 9:30 am – 10:30 am at the Planned Parenthood, 610 Louis Drive, Warminster, PA. All are welcome in peaceful, prayerful support of life for the unborn.
