Speaker to give students a "Reality Check"
Pro-life group excited to voice beliefs
Have you ever wondered about the value of human life?
Speaker Judy Rouse, executive director of the Midland Life Center, will discuss relativism and the value of human life on April 9 at 5 p.m. in the C.J. Davidson Center for an event put on by Rams4Life called "Reality Check."
"Our organization is really excited about her coming," Rams4Life vice president senior Lisa Dees said. "We have been wanting to do something big like this for a while but it has been hard having a small, still relatively-new, group. We hope that students will attend as well as community members."
Rams4Life president junior Sawyer Hirt said this lecture will broaden students' thoughts on pro-choice and allow them to view both sides of life's situations.
"It is very easy to fall into the relativism mind-set, I mean who wouldn't want to believe 'it's all about me'?" Hirt said. "If you are in this mind-set, you feel that you are free to do as you will, but I believe it's not necessarily the greatest mind set a person could be in because there are greater factors out there."
Rouse has been a part of pro-life and pregnancy resource movement since 1993. She developed prevention education programs that were introduced to districts across West Texas. Singularly, she presented lectures to over 10,000 students in five years resulting in a 44% drop of pregnancy for Midland County. Under Judy's intuitive leadership and creative vision, the center's program services birthed two pregnancy intervention satellites, two websites, expanded prevention education programming to include 4th -12th grade, reaching 28,000 students per year and oversees a staff of 37, according to her biography.
After the lecture, Rouse will answer questions from students. Admission is free, and refreshments will be served.
"I feel like ASU students are particularly apathetic about pro-life issues, or life issues in general, and if we have something that they would be interested in going to, they may realize it is an issue they really shouldn't be apathetic about," Dees said.
