As the new National Director for Medical Students for Life of America, I have as my first priority the goal of establishing a chapter of MSFLA in every medical school in the United States. Our outgoing coordinator, Dominique Monlezun has gotten us off to a great start by helping to start fifteen chapters last year. With your help, we can double or even triple that number over the next twelve months. Here’s where you come in.

There are plenty of pro-life doctors, nurses and medical students out there, but many may feel isolated and alone. They need us. They need our support. They need to meet other pro-life medical students and physicians.

We need them to know who we are at MSFLA, and that there are a great many like-minded professionals such as themselves, and that there’s strength in numbers. If you know of any pro-life doctors, nurses or medical students, please tell them about us and ask them to contact me at my email address:

Other people who might know of medical students and pro-life doctors would be pastors, pre-med students, members of your church, college professors, family members and family friends, classmates, etc.

MSFLA exists to support the needs of pro-life physicians in training, and network them with other like-minded medical professionals. We also have a number of conferences and other events, all aimed at teaching, mentoring and supporting pro-life medical students and resident physicians.

As we all know, the best time for starting a student organization is at the beginning of the school year, which is already underway, so the quicker we can gather the names of pro-life medical students, or the doctors and nurses who may know them, the better we’ll be able to reach out to them and support them.

Looking forward to an avalanche of names!
