I have many reasons for being pro-life. Growing up, I was never very involved in the pro-life movement. I was what you would call “pro-life in name only.” I believed the unborn should not be killed, but I didn’t do anything about it. Once I entered college and became educated on the issues (thanks to much of SFLA’s work), I realized I couldn’t sit back and be silent about abortion anymore. It was no longer an abstract or theoretical idea anymore. And college campuses are one of the major battle grounds to fight against abortion.
I steadily became more involved in the pro-life movement as the years went on in college. Eventually, I came to the conclusion that I would not stop doing pro-life work after graduation. In fact, I wanted to do it full time. Due to my own experience of benefitting so much from SFLA’s work, I realized that I needed to look to that particular organization. I ended up becoming a Students for life Missionary for Life in 2009, which only gave me more passion and drive. I then jumped completely in during my senior year, working as President of my campus Students for Life group and Vice President of Michigan Students for Life. Shortly after, I applied to work as a full-time Field Agent with Students for Life of America.
Becoming a SFLA Field Agent has been one of the best decisions I have made. It is challenging work but so fulfilling. I have confidence that, through grassroots activism, education and prayer, I will see the end of abortion in my lifetime.
