Liberty Law club holds prayer breakfast to support local pregnancy center
Students in Liberty University’s School of Law are banding together to raise awareness for the pro-life fight through the Law Students for Life club. The group, which is also supported by faculty and staff, engages with the public through advocacy efforts to encourage mothers to “choose life.”
On Monday morning, the club hosted a prayer breakfast in the School of Law. Students planning to attend the breakfast were encouraged to bring a package of diapers or another baby-related item to donate to the Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center. Over 6,000 diapers and 80 baby items were donated. (The club also has an Amazon wish list for those who would like to purchase items online.)
Blue Ridge Pregnancy Center Director Susan Campbell spoke about the resources the center provides for young women facing an unplanned pregnancy. Those seeking help have access to free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling, and baby items.
Liberty School of Law professor Phillip Kline, former Kansas attorney general, also spoke about the misguided view our society has regarding the unborn.
“We have falsely named abortion as convenience,” he said. “We have even falsely named what is in the womb as inhuman.”
Kline not only spoke on the importance of championing pro-life efforts, but also the need to come alongside women who have had an abortion and show them the forgiveness and healing that the Lord offers them.
“Abortion brings about shame,” he said. “The only message that could meet that shame and cover it is the blood of Jesus Christ.”
Autumn Johnson, a second-year law student and vice president of Law Students for Life, said the club wants to greatly impact the community and help fellow law students affect change as they prepare for their future careers.
“Going into the professional world as future attorneys, we can use what we have learned to attack a largely secular society by bringing the Gospel to an environment that is growing more and more hostile to the faith,” Johnson said.
