March for Life 2020

We had such a good time at the March for Life 2020 in DC! We attended the Ivy League Symposium the day after where we heard from Kristen Day of Democrats for Life and Kelsey Hazzard from Secular Pro Life. Some of us also stopped by the Pro-Life Summit and learned from speakers there and had a lunch with Stephanie Grey and Trent Horn! Thank you to Students for Life, March for Life, and everyone who joined us for the march!

Thanksgiving Thank-You Cards

Harvard Right to Life set up a table outside the Science Center for students to write to someone they are thankful for! We had quite a few students stop by and write a letter of thanks that we sent home for them for the holidays. Remember to say thank-you to someone in your life this Thanksgiving season!


The Abortion Pill Reversal

We enjoyed a lovely talk from Dr. Lucy Bayer, an OB/GYN in the Cambridge area, about the abortion pill reversal and the effects of medication abortion more generally. She explained that abortion pill reversal uses progesterone, which is used to stop miscarriages, but the pro-choice science community claims it is unsafe because there was no blind random sample experiment. However, since doctors can’t justify prescribing a placebo pill when they think there is a chance of saving a life, it would be impossible to make it scientifically valid through a blind random sample. Thank you Dr. Bayer for teaching us about this issue! IMG_6891

Planned Parenthood Outing & Social

A few Harvard Right to Life members went to sidewalk counsel outside of the Planned Parenthood by BU. We had a good time providing a calm, pro-life presence to women who may need to see they have options outside of abortion. Then, we came back on campus for a social. It was our VP of membership’s birthday, so we celebrated together with a cake. Happy birthday Matt!
