Texas Tech Students Award Scholarships to Parents Who Chose Life Ahead of Pro-Life Vote in Lubbock

College students truly are leading the Pro-Life movement. 

This week, the Raiders Defending Life (RDL), a student-led organization at Texas Tech University, awarded 14 students, a record number, “Pregnant and Parenting” scholarships. 

The abortion industry tries to convince women, especially students, that abortion is their only option. The result is that parents often feel trapped into abortion. 

The Raiders Defending Life “Pregnant and Parenting” Scholarship offers student-parents another option, an opportunity to continue pursuing their education and dreams, without sacrificing the lives of their children. 

The scholarship empowers parents to choose Life for their children, building up a Culture of Life on campus and in the larger Lubbock community. 

Some Raiders Defending Life students stand alongside the 2021 Pregnant and Parenting scholarship recipients.

In attempts to build a Culture of Life in their community, students from Raiders Defending Life, alongside many other local faith and activism groups, are pushing to make Lubbock a Sanctuary City for the Unborn. 

On Saturday, May 1, the citizens of Lubbock will vote on whether to pass an ordinance making Lubbock the largest Sanctuary City for the Unborn yet. 

This is a critical time for the people of Lubbock and for the entire state of Texas. 

The students from Raiders Defending Life, led by Texas Right to Life Dr. Joseph Graham Fellows, are at the forefront of a dramatic confrontation between the cultures of Life and death. 

The Sanctuary City for the Unborn movement has been growing rapidly in Texas. Twenty-two Texas towns have already passed ordinances banning abortions within their community. 

If Lubbock passes the ordinance, the city will become the largest by far to do so. This will pave the way for even larger cities to take this life-saving step. 

The vote on this ordinance comes at a particularly crucial time. Planned Parenthood recently opened a facility in Lubbock in October 2020, and began committing abortions this April. Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion organization in the nation, has set their targets on West Texas, and are hoping to expand their profits in the region.

The Raiders Defending Life, and many Lubbock citizens, realize the gravity of the threat they face from Planned Parenthood. 

The abortion industry will continue to prey on students, parents, and preborn children as long as they can. 

Lubbock must pass the Sanctuary City for the Unborn ordinance so that the people of West Texas will be safe from abortion and the predations of Planned Parenthood. 

You can help the Raiders Defending Life protect Lubbock from abortion. You can help students build a Culture of Life in their community. Text “LUBBOCK” to 40237 to sign the petition to encourage Lubbock voters to pass the Sanctuary City for the Unborn ordinance!
