Students for Life Action is partnering with the Susan B. Anthony List this fall to host an activism weekend in Pennsylvania as part of our “Sock the Vote” tour. Pennsylvania is a key state for President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign, and that’s why we’re equipping students with the tools they need to inspire voters to join the national dialogue on abortion. Already, we’re so proud of the volunteers we trained who knocked on 12,000 doors within the state from August 6-10.
However, we can do so much more to educate voters about abortion and encourage them to vote pro-life first!
862,320 abortions are committed every year in this country. We’ll be dialoguing with people about this unspeakable tragedy through online outreach and displays on college campuses. When we visit colleges across the nation, our team will take 2,362 baby socks with them to represent the number of children lost to abortion every day in America.
You can be a voice for the unborn by being a part of the generation that will end abortion. 93% of millennials disagree with the Democratic Party’s abortion platform. 51% oppose Roe v. Wade after learning it allows abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. 65% of millennials believe we should be able to vote on abortion-related policy – a right Roe v. Wade took away from the states.
Life is winning, and your actions can help us continue to build a culture that values preborn humans! Some voters may not be familiar with the abortion issue. That’s why we need volunteers who can show voters why they need to speak against abortion at the polling booth.
“Once, I was met at the door with three generations: a grandmother, a mother, and a daughter who was probably 15,” said Grace Rykaczewski, recalling her canvassing efforts in Pennsylvania. “This girl’s mother and grandmother didn’t speak English, so she was translating for them…[I] asked, ‘How do you feel about abortion?'”
“She responded, ‘I don’t know what abortion is, can you explain it to me?’…Then I explained abortion to this girl for the first time…This girl had a look of horror on her face, and how she responded is truly how we all should be reacting to the reality of abortion in our country,” Rykaeczewski stated.
Abortion is a grave injustice. That’s why we must elect candidates who will secure protections for the most vulnerable among us.
This fall, you can join us for one of two weekends, where we’ll be working hard to be a voice for the unborn. You can take part in our “Sock the Vote” weekend in September from Thursday, Sept. 24th to Sunday, Sept. 27th. Or, you can participate in October from Thursday, Oct. 22nd to Sunday, Oct. 25th.
