A new nationwide initiative is asking young American voters to remember the importance of life when they cast their ballots this November.
"We wanted to find a way to engage young pro-lifers in this election," said Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, the country's largest pro-life youth organization.
Hawkins told CNA on Sept. 14 that the group is launching the "I Vote Pro-Life First Initiative" to educate young voters and encourage them to vote for candidates who respect life.
The project is being carried out by a coalition that Students for Life worked to form with other pro-life groups, including The Frederick Douglass Foundation, Pro-Life Action League, Rock for Life and Live Action.
