Horns for Life is the non-sectarian student group at the University of Texas dedicated to promoting a consistent life ethic on campus and around the community. We affirm the fundamental dignity and equal value of all human lives, at all stages and in all circumstances. We oppose and work to bring an end to abortion, capital punishment, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research, and unjust war. We support pregnant and parenting students through volunteering and scholarships; we seek to change minds and hearts through education and discussion.
We have weekly meetings and regularly host speakers so that we can hear from experts on specific and important topics. Last year this included subjects like: working in the pro-life movement, human dignity in war, abortion’s affect on men, the death penalty, and many others.
We try to help out our community in hands-on ways as often as possible. In the past we’ve volunteered with Austin Pregnancy Resource Center, Hands on Housing, and other organizations like them.
Sometimes it’s good to take a step back from the heavy conversations and just go bowling or share a meal together. Last year we held various socials to appeal to the different interests of all our members.
We table on campus fairly often – about 2 or 3 times a month. Tabling is a great way to interact with our UT peers. The conversations we have on campus are meaningful and informative not just to the public, but to our own members too.
We also participate in other activist events when we can, like Students for Life of America’s Sock it to PP campaign.
In the spring of 2017, we started a Pregnant & Parenting Student Scholarship and were able to support one set of student parents here at UT. In 2018, we raised enough money to give scholarships to five different pregnant and parenting mothers at UT. In order to continue this scholarship and to keep our organization running, we need to keep raising money! We’re always looking for creative ways to raise money, and are extremely grateful for any donations we receive.
