Changing a college campus to embrace a culture of Life is no easy task. It takes courage, persistence, and a lot of energy! However, our students’ passion for helping women in unplanned pregnancies has driven them to achieve incredible successes.
Meet Bama Students for Life.
In the Spring of 2013, Bama Students for Life decided to take on the Pregnant on Campus Initiative, and they have been unstoppable ever since. Here are some of the inspiring things that this group accomplished since joining the Pregnant on Campus Initiative:
