For the past couple of months, I’ve been considering how our movement should proceed in the upcoming Presidential election.
While Students for Life is a culture-changing non-profit and not a political organization, we have the unique opportunity in each major election to mobilize young, passionate people to vote pro-life as well as educate those running for office, on both sides, on our “issue” – the greatest human rights tragedy our world has ever known.
For many, Donald Trump has not been their first-choice, and over the past several months I’ve heard conflicting statements from him, especially on defunding Planned Parenthood.
A couple of weeks ago, I was presented with the opportunity to join with other key leaders in both the pro-life and Christian spheres to convene a meeting this June with Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson, so I took it. It’s just that – a meeting, or rather, a conservation where no big rallies or speeches will happen, but where a constructive dialogue will hopefully take place as we are able to share our deep concerns.
