The 10:18 Society helps women choose life
A pro-life student group at Boyce College in Kentucky remains steadfast in their mission “to be a voice for the vulnerable and voiceless,” according to the club’s president and other members that spoke to The College Fix.

The group counsels outside the abortion facility every Thursday and Saturday morning.
The facility has even instituted a shuttle service to try to get the women seeking abortions around the counselors without engagement. “We are working through what this new service means for how we engage
