I am the pro-life generationStudents active in the pro-life movement have been meeting to receive training on public policy issues to make a difference for preborn children across the United States.

Students for Life of America (SFLA) Director of Communications Matt Lamb announced his organization now has a 501c4 tax exemption status, which allows it to take on a more active political role than under their 501c3 status as a new ministry division called Students for Life Action.

"And that's actually what a lot of our students are doing – these advocacy and lobby days through Student for Life Action – that just basically allow us to get more involved with legislation and voter contact," Lamb explained.

The pro-life advocate says Students for Life in Indiana recently spoke to legislators about paid family leave for women coping with a miscarriage and baby drop-off boxes for unwanted babies.

"We work with Susan B. Anthony List, Right to Life groups [and] other pro-life and pro-family groups in Indiana, and we were really grateful for them to include us in their lobby day," he noted.

Lamb announced that SFLA has now expanded to more than 1,225 groups on college and high school campuses across America.
