Students for Human Life

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

Any students interested in joining Students for Human Life should speak diretly with Mr. Zeckser and are free to do so any any time of the school year.

 

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.

of every human life

there is not something

haphazard or chance,

but a loving plan of God.

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.

-Maria (Weiring) Pedersen

of The Catholic Spirit      

 

"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
