Kristan Hawkins and Meghan Redmond were featured on last week’s Life on the Rock. Meghan is the Founder and President of California State University at Sacramento Students for Life club and the inspiration behind the Pregnant on Campus Initiative.
After working with Students for Life of America to start her new group in 2009, Meghan hit the ground running building her group membership, forming relationships in the Sacramento community, and, for the first time, providing a face of pro-life activism on campus.
Through her loving approach, Meghan has striven to provide a resource on her campus for pregnant, parenting, and post-abortive women – providing emotional and material support as needed. Megan started a pregnant and parenting moms support group on campus that now has over 12 members. She has also begun the process to start a scholarship program for pregnant or parenting students on campus.
Meghan also regularly sidewalk counsels outside a Sacramento abortion facility that performs abortions up to the end of the second trimester. This fall Meghan and her group members were able to help and counsel many women contemplating abortion to help them her choose life for their child.
A few months ago, when one of her own group members found herself pregnant and considering having her third abortion. After friends and family deserted her, Meghan came immediately to her aid, promising to do everything she could to provide tangible help to this mother. Today, Meghan is the god-mother of this child.
“Like Hans and Sophie Scholl, Meghan has shown courage and resolve that many students in the pro-life movement aspire to have. Her passion and love for both mother and child is truly inspiring for all,” said Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America, “Meghan lives out what she preaches every day. She is an example for all of us, and I couldn’t be more proud to give her this award.”
