In a time where most young people are ardently liberal and progressive-minded, there is still a stronghold (if not resurgence) of conservative and right-leaning students out there that care about important issues at hand. What comes to mind is preserving the sanctity of life that arises with the advent of a woman debating about having an abortion for various reasons. I am pro-life and would love to have the opportunity to visit this, as any pro-life or conservative student would.
California Students for Life is scheduled to hold a SoCal conference on April 17th, 2010, at Claremont McKenna College in Pomona, CA, where discourse on the dangers and ills of abortion will take place. UC Berkeley’s Student for Life group is playing host to this one-of-a-kind event that should not be missed!
According to the Facebook event page, this is the schedule of events to take place:
Does your campus pass the pro-life test?
*Do your classmates know the truth about abortion and embryonic stem cell research?
*Do you have an active prolife student group?
*Does your campus provide resources to pregnant students?
*Would a student who finds herself pregnant know where to turn?
Learn from the top prolife advocates:
Lila Rose (President, Live Action) – How to Investigate Your Health Clinic
Dr. William Hurlbut (Professor, Stanford University) – Embryonic Stem Cells & Alternatives
Allison Aranda (Attorney, Life Legal Defense) – Knowing Your Free Speech Rights
Mike Spence (Vice Pres., California Prolife Council) – Pro-life Political Advocacy
Cheryl Conrad (Co-Founder, Survivors) – Campus Prolife Activism
Lucy McVicker (Students for Life of America) – Starting a Pro-life Group
Cost is $10 at the door for students, $15 for non-students.
