Can Pro-Life College Students Have a Voice?

November 27th is coming and, along with it, your opportunity to help WRTL Build Wisconsin for Life in 2019!

#GivingTuesday is a day set aside for you to give to your favorite non-profit organizations. It was created to offset the shopping heydays of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The Wisconsin Right to Life Education Fund relies heavily on #GivingTuesday to fund our many programs. Our L!fe on Campus college groups benefit tremendously from #GivingTuesday!

It’s no secret that our college campuses are strongholds for pro-abortion activism. Knowing there was a need for the pro-life message to be heard at colleges and universities, Wisconsin Right to Life established pro-life groups on college campuses around Wisconsin years before any other group. Now appropriately called L!fe on Campus, these groups are bringing the truth about life to colleges and universities throughout our state and giving pro-life students a voice.

Because of your generosity during 2018, L!fe on Campus groups have been able to:

  • Direct students with unplanned pregnancies to local pregnancy resource centers;
  • Offer pro-life education on campus through “tabling” events;
  • Raise awareness with displays like Cemetery of the Innocents;
  • Educate through fun events such as Pro-Life Cupcake Day;
  • Bring pro-life speakers to campus;
  • Hold events such as Pro-Life Solidarity Days;
  • Offer camaraderie and support to pro-life students who often feel alone.

Pro-life displays like this Cemetery of the Innocents on Bascom Hill at UW-Madison are one of the many ways L!fe on Campus students raise awareness about abortion.

Marquette L!fe on Campus member, Justus, said, “L!fe on Campus is great because it provides community to what is the minority on campuses – pro-lifers.”

In order to ensure that L!fe on Campus students are equipped to be pro-life leaders at their colleges and universities, the Wisconsin Right to Life Education Fund holds a college training weekend each fall. This is an event our L!fe on Campus students love!

Julio from UW Madison’s L!fe on Campus group said: “The college training is incredibly helpful. We’ve learned lots of useful things like how to communicate about this issue in a compassionate way. The support we receive from Wisconsin Right to Life helps us to be more effective.”

Your gifts are making a difference at colleges and universities across Wisconsin and are giving pro-life students a voice!

And there’s great news: Because of your generosity to L!fe on Campus and the Wisconsin Right to Life Education Fund, the number of L!fe on Campus groups expanded from 13 to 18 groups during 2018!

Your gifts to Wisconsin Right to Life on #GivingTuesday will help us support all of our Education programs, including all of our L!fe on Campus groups. And you don’t have to wait until #GivingTuesday, either. You can give today!

Thanks so much for your support of the Wisconsin Right to Life Education Fund through #GivingTuesday!
