Students for Life of America Launch Eight-Campus Pink Cross Tour

Students for Life of America (SFLA) has launched a college project to raise awareness that Planned Parenthood aborts 915 lives every day. As part of the effort, 915 pink crosses will be erected at eight different college campuses over a two-week period, to represent the 915 lives that Planned Parenthood ends each day.

Called The Planned Parenthood Project, the college itinerary includes:

April 15 - University of Cincinnati
April 16 - Franciscan University of Steubenville
April 17 - Seton Hall University
April 18 - American University
April 22 - University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
April 23 - Clemson University
April 24 - University of Alabama-Birmingham
April 25 - Tulane University

“According to our research, 59 percent of 18-24 year olds do not know that Planned Parenthood commits abortions, but that their negativity towards the abortion Goliath increases when they find out the truth,” explained Kristan Hawkins, executive director of SFLA, in a statement. “We need to expose the fact that Planned Parenthood is the number one abortion business in the United States, performing almost 335,000 abortions annually.”

Continued the statement:

While receiving $542 million in taxpayer funding,Planned Parenthood made over $150 million in revenue from the 333,965 abortions they performed in just the 2011-2012 fiscal year alone. They are an abortion business, plain and simple. The sad truth is that 44 percent of abortions are performed on women 18-24 years old, so Planned Parenthood has a financial interest in marketing to their best customers. Planned Parenthood targets students with almost 80 percent of their facilities located within 5 miles of a college or university campus. We need to reach these students and inform them of Planned Parenthood’s dirty practices before Planned Parenthood can lure them in.

According to Hawkins, an abortion rights group at Seton Hall University held a counter-protest. Meanwhile, at UNC-Chapel Hill, counter-protestors called the police, yelled and cursed at Students for Life, and stole postcards that the pro-life students had on-hand.
