Mission Statement

The mission of Columbia Right to Life is to organize and activate pro-life students on campus. Members of Columbia Right to Life work to protect the dignity of human life from conception to natural death, particularly those lives threatened by abortion, infanticide, embryonic stem cell research and euthanasia. In furtherance of these goals, members seek to promote respect for life at Columbia University and on a local, state and national level, to educate on life issues, to help those in need so that life is a promising choice and to work with others who share common goals.
