DALLAS — On Tuesday, April 17, Mustangs for Life, joined by co-sponsors College Republicans and SMU Law Students for Life, will host Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick for “Lives to Remember” at SMU’s Dallas campus.

The Lt. Governor will deliver his remarks at 7 p.m.

Volunteers will be on hand before and after the event to assist with directions and parking. All individuals from the DFW metroplex are welcome. Admission is complimentary.

“This address, coinciding with the annual “Memorial of Innocents” display, will help us honor the lives of the unborn lost each day to abortion and respect every woman who has faced the difficult decision of abortion. It is a testament to our commitment to building a culture of life at SMU and the surrounding community,” Mustangs for Life President Daniel T. Rosa said in defining the purpose of the event.

The mission of Mustangs for Life is “to honor the dignity of all human persons, from conception to natural death by being a positive source of activism, education, service and love in SMU’s community.”

The club was founded in 2013 and has been active in the SMU community volunteering at nursing homes and pregnancy resource centers, bringing speakers from a variety of pro-life experiences and emphasizing their motto: “Pro-Lifetime.” This year marks the fifth year of the display and the second time it has been accompanied by a speaker. Other events for the week will include “More Than A Movement,” a pro-life and pro-choice discussion panel on Wednesday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m.

SMU is a private university of over 11,000 students near the center of Dallas. Its mission is to expand knowledge through academic excellence and hands-on research. SMU’s small student-to-faculty ratio, diverse student body, well-established athletic programs, dynamic campus life and strong undergraduate, graduate and professional programs have led to a continuous rise in national university rankings.
