Four months from now—in late January—I know exactly where I’ll be.

know who took this photo.
Like I said: people notice!
I’ll be on a plane to Washington, D.C. to carry the bright blue, massive, you-can’t-miss-it banner in the March for Life. Then I’ll be at the Students for Life of America conference, where roughly 2,500
on-fire campus pro-life leaders will converge, showing them how they can reach their classmates of every faith and no faith. On the West Coast, my colleague Monica will lead the SPL contingent at the Walk for Life in San Francisco, followed by yet another Students for Life conference for western schools.
I call it Roe season. It’s hectic, it’s non-stop, and it’s my favorite time of the year. It’s when I get to connect with all of you in person, recruit more young people to Secular Pro-Life, and give students the tools they need to save lives.
Roe season is also, by far, the most expensive part of SPL’s year.
When we speak on college campuses, we don’t charge an honorarium. We know that pro-life student groups usually have limited budgets. Some student leaders have told us that our events would not have been possible if we didn’t have our no-honorarium policy.
When we share pro-life news and commentary on this blog, we don’t bug you with advertisements. And when our pieces are reprinted in outlets like LifeNews.com, we don’t charge for that, either.
Our #1 priority is to spread the secular pro-life perspective as far and wide as we possibly can, because we know that many people can only be reached by us. That often means foregoing potential sources of income.
We need you.
Yes, it’s only September. But Roe season is looming on the horizon, and we’re already making plans for this to be our best year yet!
If you benefit from Secular Pro-Life—if we’ve shown you that you aren’t alone, if we’ve helped you talk to your friends about hard topics, if we’ve stretched your mind—then please chip in at NoHonorarium.org. Our goal is $5,000. I know we can do it!
Thanks so much for everything.
