Students for Life President, Kristan Hawkins, is proud of the work that her organization did during the march.
Hawkins shared her thoughts on the matter with Independent Journal Review.
“In middle of December we found out that Planned Parenthood would be an official sponsor. . The abortion lobby has made it where you can’t have a conversation about helping women thrive and succeed and achieve their dreams and careers goals without talking about abortion.”
Hawkins also told IJR that at one point during the march, a couple tried to block the pro-life students from continuing to march with their banners.
“She used her own children to block them from continuing to march with their signs,” Hawkins told IJR.
The couple, who had disabled children, told the pro-life marchers that they need access to healthcare. Then screamed at Hawkins, “Do you want to take our disabled children and raise them?”
Hawkins immediately said, “Yes.”
The organization has been receiving some hate emails since the video went viral but Hawkins says she also has received a lot of support as well.
“We have received messages from people who tell me that they are praying for us and that they support us.”
Students for Life will also be participating in this year’s March for Life rally and march in DC on January 27th.
