The Mission of the Pregnant on Campus Initiative is two-fold:
- To provide a vision and plan to the campus pro-life groups across America for how to create sustainable student pro-life organizations by establishing service projects to help women and families on campus and in the community.
- Reduce abortion rates on college campuses by creating service projects that your pro-life group can use and organize to provide essential resources for fellow students facing unplanned, crisis pregnancies.
The fact is that approximately 42% of abortions in America are obtained by college-aged women (age 18-24). Too often, pregnant and parenting students feel forced to choose between continuing their education or dropping out to raise their child. College campuses have failed to foster a life-affirming environment and provide the necessary resources for pregnant and parenting students. Therefore, it is up to us, the students, to encourage our administration and our peers to identify, advertise, improve, and expand resources for pregnant and parenting students on our college campuses.
