I am the pro-life generationA group of student pro-lifers in Georgia recently met with the state’s Republican governor to support foster care reform in the state.

The pro-life activists, representing Students for Life of America groups from Georgia Tech and Highland College, sat down with Gov. Brian Kemp.

Students for Life spokesman Matt Lamb says the pro-life group is aware of criticisms that pro-life advocates care only about unborn children. So drawing attention to foster care is one way to show the movement cares about all life.

The new advocacy arm of SFLA, Students for Life Action, is taking its message to elected officials – and is reporting good results.

"We had a great example, actually, in Virginia,” Lamb says, “where two Democratic state senators who are pro-choice actually co-sponsored legislation that we helped give some advice on to reform the foster care system."

SFLA now has a 501c4 tax exemption status which allows the organization to take on a more active political role than was possible before.
