Students For Life Asked to Participate in Women's March. Now They'll Protest. Here's Why.

The national pro-life group Students For Life of America will hold a demonstration at the Women's March on Washington after reportedly not getting approval to be an organizing partner.

The Women's March on Washington is scheduled to be held in the Nation's Capital the day after president-elect Donald Trump is sworn into office.

SFLA recently announced on Facebook that they are planning to demonstrate at the March, as they believe the agenda for the event is biased toward the pro-choice perspective.

"We are going to show those in attendance at the Women's March that the very thing they are marching against, violence against women, is what they are promoting and lauding with their support for abortion," stated their Facebook event.
"We will not sit by as the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood, a sponsor of this March, betrays women into thinking abortion is the only choice."
In comments sent to The Christian Post, SFLA President Kristan Hawkins explained that she attempted to contact March organizers regarding involvement, but that they never responded.
"They refused to acknowledge my inquiries into being a sponsor, perhaps thinking I was a college student, even though it was clear who I represented, the largest national youth pro-life organization," said Hawkins.
"Even though they put forth the message that they are inclusive and are demonstrating for a variety of issues, I think they deliberately leave out pro-life organizations, deeming us not the 'right people' for their message."
Hawkins also told CP that she hoped that the demonstration at the March would show pro-choice attendees that they should convert to the pro-life viewpoint.
