WASHINGTON, D.C. (11-15-2022) – Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins made the following statement following news of a returning Presidential candidate, as former President Donald Trump throws his hat into the ring: “The Pro-Life movement – or at least that part in which I am daily engaged – is not drawn to any one political party or any one person; we take a principled stand on the human rights issue of our day – fighting death by deliberate abortion. We welcome any and all authentically pro-life candidates into the ring. The Pro-Life Vote, the #ProLifeGen Vote will need to be earned. This generation is not looking for platitudes or show votes, but functional limits, real protections, help for mothers and children, and ultimately an end to abortion as a human rights atrocity our nation will look back on with regret.”

Promising signs for the pro-life movement in every corner of the country
As a mega grassroots mobilizer in the 2022 election cycle, SFLAction has deployed more than 1,000 student activists this election cycle to canvass in 33 states around the country. In addition, SFLAction has educated more than 250,000 voters at their doorsteps and has utilized its #VoteProLifeFirst digital campaign to run ads, send peer-to-peer text messages, and make phone calls to reach another seven million voters.
Locking in on one-third of the voting bloc, Gen Z and Millennial voters have been rapidly mobilizing on their campuses and communities to get their peers to join them and pledge to #VoteProLifeFirst. This campaign has seen more than 111,000 (and counting!) Gen Z and Millennial voters change their minds and pledge to #VoteProLifeFirst.
In key states in 2022, SFLAction has:
- Personally texted nearly 3,110,252 voters exposing the abortion lobby’s propaganda.
- Made 2,051,680 phone calls to pro-life voters.
- Launched cutting-edge Vote Pro-Life First digital ads, focusing on the youth vote that were viewed over 8,988,106 times.
- Exposed nearly a dozen pro-abortion candidates who are #TooExtreme4Me through Overpass Outreach.
As noted by The Washington Post, SFLAction is “one of the largest antiabortion organizations in the country,” and has long been preparing legislatively for a Post-Roe America. Fox News recognizes SFLAction “has already been pushing state legislatures” and our growing influence has even reached pro-abortion leading researcher Mary Ziegler who noted the power of our mobilization in The Atlantic.

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 1,300 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.
