[VFL] Today is National Pro-Life Chalking Day! Check out the Levering Courtyard!
Defending life since 1995
National Pro-Life Chalking Day
Today is National Pro-Life Chalking Day! This year’s theme is #WomenBetrayed.
As WomenBetrayed.com says, ” On September 10th, the #WomenBetrayed coalition held a rally on Capitol Hill to bring the real stories of women in Planned Parenthood to our Representatives in Washington, DC, and meet with our elected officials, to personally ask to not fund Planned Parenthood anymore. These women know from first-hand experience that Planned Parenthood’s business model is built on selling out women and their preborn babies for profit. Women don’t need Planned Parenthood. Our voices were heard loud and clear.”
On campus, over the last two days, a lot of students have inquired to see if the pro-life chalking on the Levering Courtyard was in response to #ShoutYourAbortion, which was launched by feminists Lindy West and Amelia Bonow on September 19, 2015. This started after the House of Representatives voted 241–187 to suspend federal funding for Planned Parenthood because they felt that “[t] he campaign to defund PP “relies on the assumption that abortion is to be whispered about” #ShoutYourAbortion” as Lindy West posted on Twitter.
In response, #ShoutYourAdoption is being used to show the beauty of adoption, which offers a promising choice to expectant mothers who are considering an abortion and is a beautiful thing. Click here to see more.

With everything that we do, we truly have the opportunity of changing hearts and saving lives.
For life always,

The mission of the Johns Hopkins Voice for Life is to defend the right to life of every human life, from conception until natural death. We strive to be the voice of the weakest and most vulnerable members of our society threatened by abortion, euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, and more. Further, we seek to educate on current life issues, including fetal rights and development and embryonic stem cell research. In being the voice for the voiceless, we seek to foster a culture of life within the Johns Hopkins and the surrounding communities, to educate on life issues, and to help those in need so that life is a promising choice.
