"Being involved in the Pro-life Movement since high school, I have seen that the transition into college is not an easy one. There is a statistic out there that states 47 percent of all women enter college pro-life; 73 percent leave favoring abortion. That statistic is heartbreaking. Another heartbreaking truth is the majority of abortions in America are being performed on college students. There is no other life issue that is more prevalent in colleges. By educating our college campuses about the truth of abortion, we hope that we can change hearts and minds about abortion ultimately making abortion unthinkable. We hope to restore a society that promotes life in this society that promotes death!"
- Cisco Gonzales
"We have a lot of work to do this year, and Louisiana Students for Life is going to be leading the way on our college and university campuses. Our groups exist to network, educate, and activate pro-life students at all colleges and universities in the state of Louisiana. Fifty percent of all abortions are done on women between the ages 18 and 25, and we recognize our responsibility to help students who find themselves in a crisis pregnancy. We defend the defenseless, and we are doing our part to end abortion on campus."
