Students for Human Life

Students for Human Life consists of BSM students who are concerned for life issues in our world. Students acknowledge the need to advocate for life at all of its stages and pursue a variety of avenues to do this.

Student testimonial: From the past year in Students for Human Life I have learned a lot about my beliefs and the issues we have talked about. It has helped me personally grow in my beliefs…. I have grown more passionate and I think I understand it more thanks to S4HL, and I want to help others grow in learning as well.

At the origin

of every human life

there is not something

haphazard or chance,

but a loving plan of God.

~ Pope Benedict XVI

 


Meeting Schedule:

Students for Human Life meet on the first and third Friday of every month at 7:15 a.m. in Room 147. 

Upcoming Meetings:



Your students showed a tremendous amount of enthusiasm and interest in protecting the vulnerable. It was clear to me that they were deeply interested in understanding the scope of abortion's effects on a national and international level, and wanted to work to help expectant mothers in the Twin Cities give life to their unborn.

"Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government.  They are every human being’s entitlement by virtue of his humanity.  The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign.


~ Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta
