As a 2023 survey from the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE) found that nearly 50% of American college students find abortion to be “a difficult topic to have an open and honest conversation,” Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins has penned a letter to Vice President Kamala Harris, inviting her to debate the issue of abortion on campus.

The White House announcement of Harris’ “Fight for Our Freedoms College Tour” actually overlaps with Hawkins’ own campus speaking tour entitled “I’m Coming for Your Abortion Access,” with both women making tour stops at Northern Arizona University.

Speaking on the opposite ends of the abortion issue in their individual tours, Hawkins has challenged Harris to have a conversation on any campus. Her letter reads in part:

“The abortion story that the Biden-Harris Administration tells about itself swings dramatically between claims that there is no more extreme pro-abortion fighting team available or that abortion without limits isn’t really a story at all. At Students for Life of America, we know the truth to be the former – that the administration that you help lead fights for abortion through all nine months, for any reason, with taxpayer funding, up to and including infanticide. Throw in the attacks on conscience rights and states passing pro-life laws, and it’s clear that your administration is working to earn the money that Planned Parenthood Action and others have invested in your agenda. Abortion is on the ballot in the coming election, as you know.

“Your policy story is told in the fine print of measures like the Women’s Health Protection Act as well as in opposition to the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act, pushes for numerous regulation changesprosecutions and statements from the Department of Justice, and even in changes to the Space Program, as a pro-life Senator’s state lost a planned program as he fights for the lives of the preborn among our military family. Support for abortion and abortion profiteers pollutes programs aiding other countries and influences the personnel choices of this Administration.

“While this is well known to those of us who track this human rights policy, for most students on college and university campuses, the extent of the radial abortion agenda of the Biden-Harris Administration is more camouflaged by rhetoric about “access” and “justice.””
