“Let’s be clear: Anyone is free to purchase contraception; at issue is who pays for it. And it’s an obsessive kind of cruelty from Corporate Abortion and its political allies that insist the money come from people who strongly believe that it matters whether we as a society are preparing to welcome children into the world,” said SFLAction’s Kristan Hawkins.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (02-06-2023) – In response to the Biden Administration’s proposed rule entitled ‘Coverage of Certain Preventive Services Under the Affordable Care Act,’ Students for Life Action (SFLAction) announced a nationwide effort to prevent policy changes from being enacted that directly impede upon certain individuals’ moral exemption rights by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Internal Revenue Service, and the Employee Benefits Security Administration.
SFLAction welcomes its 1,400 college campus groups and others in its 50-state network to participate in the public comment period throughout April 3, 2023. In doing so, the Pro-Life Generation will deliver comments addressing President Biden’s pursuit to force funding of ‘all U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved, cleared, or granted contraceptives.’
Some of these approved contraceptives include sterilization and abortifacients, which Hawkins called “an obsessive kind of cruelty” when you consider that in two separate Supreme Court cases, it was determined that the conscience rights of individuals mattered on issues of abortion, abortifacients, and birth control.
By amending regulations under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, President Biden’s proposal would undo 2018 policies that allow entities and individuals with moral objections to oppose such services. In addition, the proposed rule attempts to circumvent entities’ choice to not provide contraceptive coverage by reimbursing eligible individuals with a “user fee adjustment.”
“Students for Life Action does not take a position against birth control per se. We oppose forcing people to buy or fund drugs and devices against their beliefs, such as nuns, and we oppose forcing people to pretend that abortifacients mislabeled as contraception should also be paid for, and we also oppose giving such drugs and devices to minors who need the advice of a caring adult, not those who stand to profit from risky behavior, before engaging in behavior that has life-changing implications,” Hawkins added.

Students for Life Action (SFLAction), a 501c4, along with its 501c3 sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA), make up the nation’s largest pro-life youth organization and a political and policy operation engaging people of all ages. Together they work to end abortion — the human rights issue of our day — and provide political, legal, and community support for women and their children, born and preborn. Headquartered in Fredericksburg, VA, SFLA has more than 1,400 groups on middle, high school, college, university, medical, and law school campuses in all 50 states. SFLA creates strategy, policy, and programming to connect those most targeted for abortion with people ready to help and builds a framework for political engagement on their behalf. SFLA and SFLAction have more conversations with those most targeted by the abortion industry than any other pro-life outreach in the world, reaching more than 2 million people across social media platforms each week and engaging in approximately 100,000 digital conversations per month. Over more than 16 years, President Kristan Hawkins has grown SFLAction/SFLA into an $18 million organization preparing for a Post-Roe America.
