Pro Life on Campus at the University of North Carolina
The Carolina Students for Life (CSFL) hosted our Pro Life Training Academy (PLTA) and Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) in late March. It was our third trip to Chapel Hill. We gotta do this more often!
Due to a turf restoration project on Polk Place, the normal venue for displays like GAP, CSFL reserved a very visible space just outside the Wilson Library.
Co-Presidents Julie and Emily Ascik are very effective leaders who labored long and hard to convince the CSFL members to host GAP. As it turned out, some of the opposition came from “members” who rarely bother to do very much at all (other than obstruct, apparently). Fortunately, several younger members stepped up and CSFL’s future looks bright indeed.

Julie and Emily aren’t the only pro-life warriors in their family. Older brother Peter was President of the Students for Life at the U of Georgia when they hosted GAP in 2010.
More to come.
