Pro-life club held its last meeting of the year on April 22. Students discussed their experiences with the club and their hopes for the upcoming year.

Members were broken into small groups to discuss events of the past year, including the club’s successes and personal struggles.

“It is difficult being pro-life when not all of my friends are,” said junior club leader Natalie Cieslak. “It can be awkward at times.”

Many students find the club to be very beneficial, as it draws students of similar beliefs together for support, growth, and collective change. Students at this meeting discussed why they are pro-life and how they help can the cause.

Club moderators and members hope to recruit more students for the club and pro-life community during pro-life week, which is April 27 through May 1.

“I am excited to see everyone participate in pro-life week,” said Cieslak.

The club invites all students to wear pro-life t-shirts on to spread awareness throughout the school. The pro-life week will feature “find the baby” game and winners will receive $5 gift cards. A baby clothes drive and a bake sale will be held from Wednesday to Friday to raise money and supplies for crisis pregnancy centers. Celebrity baby pictures will be featured at the end of the week.

The club will be providing daily facts and prayers throughout the week, along with the option for students to share their personal pro-life stories via a poster in the south alcove.
