Students for Human Life consists of BSM students who are concerned with 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. We believe that all life is sacred from conception till natural death.
"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
