Opinion: Students for Life seeks students for March for Life

Saint Mary’s Students for Life encourages students to be the change that you want to see in the world by participating in next year’s March for Life trip to Washington, D.C. 

March for Life was founded by Nellie Gray in 1974. Almost 40 years of March for Life, 55 million babies have been aborted. This is a big number that should not be ignored. So why not participate in Students for Life and fight for those who are still in mother’s womb to get an opportunity to live? How do we not know if one of those babies would have been something good for our country? Why kill an innocent baby? Life is important and students need to stand for it even when it is difficult.

The Saint Mary’s students who participated in March for Life this year said that 80% of the over 500 million people who attended were under the age of 20. Michelle Boris said that Students for Life hopes to take at least two buses of Saint Mary’s students. It is a great way to show how much one loves life and be a good example for the next generation.

Students for Life encourages students to join and discover the world by becoming a student pro-lifer. 

“Our mission is to protect the lives of unborn babies,” said President of Students for Life Michelle Boris.

Students should consider joining Students for Life because it presents an opportunity to go to Washington, D.C., for the march. This event involves a visit to the Basilica, site-seeing, concerts, adoration as well as a free evening to visit other places.

Students for Life seeks members who “respect all life from natural conception to a natural death,” said member Teresa Lavalla.
