We at B*llikens for Choice would like to give credit to Students for Life for expanding the scope of Respect Life Week to include issues of euthanasia and the death penalty.

However, there is still no space on campus for people to openly debate these issues. Students who have differing views on abortion are not being heard.

We believe that being pro-choice means respecting the life of the woman and entrusting her to make decisions about her own life and body. Women who choose abortion do so for a wide range of reasons — rape, incest, financial situations, etc — and that choice is private one. Pro-choice means pro-woman, pro-child, pro-family.

Our organization was formed to provide a space to give a voice to the other side of the issue. We fundamentally believe that safe sex is the best sex, and Saint Louis University is not providing any services to the student body. Students should have access to contraception and resources on protecting themselves.

We’re here to give students access to condoms, information about safe sex practices and resources about reproductive choice.
