I invite you all to come out Thursday, October 13th at 3pm to the University of West Florida to hear an amazing speaker, Alicia Conlee, talk about what it’s like to make a choice. Her testimony is inspiring and is really worth your time! You won’t want to miss this!
She will be speaking upstairs in the commons, in the Nautilus Chamber. For more information contact Chelsea at [email protected]
Have a blessed day!
President UWF Students For Life
40 Days for Life Kick-off
Get pumped up to get active in this powerful campaign by speaker Bryan Kemper, the founder of Stand True Ministries: a Christ-centered pro-life group determined to awaken the youth of this country and share the message of life and the Gospel of Christ. Some of Students for Life members at UWF like to wear their artistic pro-life t-shirts. Our group also participates in the Silent Day of Solidarity started by Stand True as a peaceful and dramatic way to draw attention to the millions of unborn who are silenced from abortion.
Bryan Kemper has an amazing testimony to share about how he came to know Jesus and how this new encounter dramatically changed his life and made him devote his life to pro-life ministry. If you want to listen to someone who has literally been there and done that and been transformed by the grace of God and is now a powerful proponent in the pro-life movement, there is no better opportunity than this Saturday!
Kick-Off starts at 6:30 and goes till 8PM
St Anne Catholic Church – Family Life Center
5200 Saufley Field Road
If anyone wants to go, email me here. The event will not have a meal, so maybe a group of Students for Life can carpool and get some pizza or something beforehand? Also, this event is open to everyone, so if you know someone who could benefit from this BRING THEM!
Last Thursday at UWF, both Students for Life and College Republicans enjoyed a personal audience with next fall’s Florida candidate for Senate, George Lemieux. Both groups were free to ask the candidate any question that concerned them. Some of the questions asked included:
- “What are your ideas for solving the social security crisis?”
- “What is your stance on pro-life issues?”
- “How do you vote on legislation?”
- “What can we the people do to get our nation going in the right direction?”
You can read about his ideas and stances regarding these topics by going to his website: Georgeforflorida.com
While Students for Life is not a political group, we do participate in political events to advance pro-life legislation. I highly, highly encourage you to do your homework, look at the voting records for the candidates in your voting district and vote in TRULY, AUTHENTICALLY pro-life leaders. When we do not vote or when we vote out of ignorance, we do a great disservice to our country as well as those who fought for the freedoms we so often take for granted. Remember, if a candidate does not recognize the dignity and worth of human life (no matter the age), that candidate has no moral compass to make responsible legislation regarding other issues.
*Candidates that support “reducing the number of abortions” are NOT PRO-LIFE. A little bit of killing is still killing. We cannot afford to compromise on the most basic of values.*
Bill Nelson has been a Florida Senator since 1972! He has promoted anti-life bill after anti-life bill amongst other bad legislation! We cannot afford to allow career politicians like Bill Nelson to stay in power because of ignorance of the damage they create. After meeting with George Lemieux, I know for certain that he is truly 100% pro-life and pro-America. Because of his unwillingness to compromise on the most basic of rights, he is also unwilling to compromise on responsible long-term solutions that will be good for Florida and good for the United States. Do your homework and vote smart!
- If you would like to get involved with supporting pro-life leaders and legislation, please come to our next group meeting Thursday at 3PM in the room 260 of the Commons.
