USU Students for Life

There is a new chapter of Students for Life at USU.  Students for Life is a national organization whose mission is to promote respect for the dignity of all persons (pre-born and born) and to support the pro-life generation in changing our culture.  The USU chapter plans on doing education, awareness raising, and fundraising to support pro-life causes (in particular the Logan Center for Pregnancy Choices, which supports women with pre-natal care, adoption support, maternity and infant supplies, and more).

USU Students for Life will hold its inaugural event on Wednesday October 16 from 6:00-7:30 in Main 115.  There will be pizza, an introduction to Students for Life, and then I will be giving a lecture entitled “Are the Unborn Persons?”

All are welcome!

About Kleiner

Associate Vice Provost and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.

  1. Dear Dr. Kleiner, This is great news. Please consider prefacing any of your discussions with an appeal to any in the audience who have made a “choice” that they regret. There are many different formats for post-abortion healing programs. I’ve worked with Forgiven and Set Free, which is a 10 week Bible study, and also been a team member on the weekend retreats by Rachel’s Vineyard. Go Deeper Still is another that I’ve heard is excellent.
    Many cannot discuss abortion, and don’t even realize that the reason is they are so deeply wounded, they react by “fight or flight.”
    Thank you,

    I would love to hear or read your lecture if you could post it!

      I had somewhat scattered notes and it wasn’t recorded. But I might spruce it up a bit and present it to the USU Philosophy Club sometime in the future. I hope you are well Melanie!
