The Students for Life chapter at Ball State University in Indiana notched a win for expecting mothers recently: special parking permits.
According to Students for Life, pregnant mothers will be issued parking permits this upcoming school year that will allow them to park closer to academic buildings on campus.
The pro-life student organization worked in conjunction with their Student Government Association to secure the new policy that will take some stress off of expecting mothers.
“After building relationships with many student parents over my four year experience at Ball State University, I discovered how important small accommodations can be in the success of parenting students,” said Nora Hopf, a recent graduate and the former president of the student organization. “They have expressed their concerns and as an advocate I made sure their voices didn’t fall on deaf ears.”
Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life of America praised the accomplishment explaining that it was “a great example of the work that Students for Life groups do every single day to advocate for a pro-life culture on their campuses.”
“Ball State University should be commended for taking the right steps to ensure their campuses welcome pregnant students by making it easier for them to get to their classes and feel welcomed,” Hawkins said. “This change is a common sense policy that we want to see at every campus across the country.”
