Kristan was hired in 2006 to become Students for Life of America’s (SFLA) first Executive Director. Since launching SFLA’s full-time operation, Kristan has helped more than triple the number of campus pro-life groups in the United States, from 181 to almost  700 in 49 states, and grow the SFLA National Conference from 450 in 2007 to 2,000 in 2012, making the event the largest pro-life conference in the nation.

As Executive Director, Kristan directs the mission and strategy of Students for Life of America. In addition, Kristan serves as the organization’s official spokeswoman and has appeared on Fox News, CNN, EWTN, Family Talk with Dr. James Dobson and the Christian Broadcasting Network; she is frequently blogger for LifeNews.com and has also been quoted in numerous national and regional newspapers such as the Washington Times, Washington Post, FoxNews.com. A dynamic speaker, Kristan travels the country talking to students and adults alike on a wide range of topics including Planned Parenthood, Real Feminism, Real Social Justice, Pro-Life Activism and Leadership.

Kristan is known for her work leading the successful Stop the Abortion Mandate Coalition which brought together over 70 pro-life and pro-family leaders in a national coalition dedicated to stopping government funding of abortion in healthcare reform. In addition, she launched HealthcareforGunner.com in June of 2009, a website and coalition dedicated to her son Gunner who suffers from cystic fibrosis, to raise the issue of healthcare rationing in government healthcare systems. Kristan and the SFLA Team have launched several successful investigations into Planned Parenthood with Kristan, herself, going undercover on several occasions, and have even released startlingly information proving the abortion Goliath targets college-aged youth.

In addition to launching SFLA’s unique, nationwide Field Program, Kristan and her team have launched Med Students for Life, Law Students for Life, and Pregnant on Campus, a transformative initiative which strives to connect young women in need on campus to those in the community.
Since high school, Kristan has been an advocate for the unborn and pro-life speaker/trainer. Her pro-life mission began when she was asked to volunteer at a Pregnancy Resource Center during her sophomore year of high school. After spending 3 months counseling women not to abort their children, Kristan started the first pro-life group at her high school and eventually was asked to be the West Virginia Teens for Life President. It was during high school, where Kristan organized her first political protest and events aimed at educating students about abortion.
After graduating high school as Valedictorian, Kristan went on to college and again started the first pro-life group on her college campus. In college, Kristan majored in Political Science with the hopes of becoming a full-time pro-life activist. In 2005, she graduated Summa Cum Laude from Bethany College in West Virginia.

Before coming to SFLA, Kristan worked for the 2004 Bush/Cheney re-election campaign, the Republican National Committee, and served as a political appointee in the George W. Bush administration at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Center for Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.

Since working at SFLA, Kristan has been awarded the Susan B. Anthony Young Leader Award, the Dr. William Hogan Education Award for pro-life leadership, the 2009 Weyrich Youth Leadership Award, and a 2010 Life Prize Award.

local press: Yakima Walk for Life to mark 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade

The Yakima Herald-Republic wrote about the upcoming Walk for Life in today’s paper.

YAKIMA, Wash. — Yakima’s Walk for Life on Saturday will commemorate a 40th anniversary.

It will also be a memorial, an organizer said.

The annual march through Yakima celebrates participants’ commitment to protecting human life. This year it coincides with the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in January 1973.

The walk begins at 1 p.m. at St. Paul Cathedral, 15 S. 12th Ave., and will proceed east on Yakima Avenue, concluding at Millennium Plaza on South Third Street. The walk covers about 1.3 miles.

Retired Bishop Emeritus Carlos Sevilla of the Catholic Diocese of Yakima will offer the opening prayer at St. Paul, and Alice Sanders, an evangelist with the Full Gospel and Holiness denomination, will give the closing remarks at Millennium Plaza.

Participants will then be invited to the Madison House Youth Center, 304 S. Fourth St., for warm refreshments and snacks.

A bus will be available to take walkers back to St. Paul.

Lenette Lindemann, one of the organizers, explained that this year’s event, named “A Call to Remembrance,” will have a memorial theme.

“We’re looking at it as a memorial walk to honor the children who have lost their lives through this procedure (abortion.)”

Lindemann also said that organizers are working to broaden community participation this year by reaching out to various service groups, teams, nonprofits and different churches.

Between 300 to 500 people, from around Central Washington, are expected to walk, she said. “People are encouraged to bring banners identifying their group and respectful signs.”

Lindemann is board chair of Image Point Mobile Medical Services, a Selah nonprofit Christian organization, which is sponsoring the walk.

Image Point MMS founder featured on Abortion in Washington blog

We’ve already discussed how much we appreciate the Abortion in Washington blog and their mission to “shine the light of truth” on our state’s abortion industry.

Earlier this month they interviewed us on the 2010 closure of the Cedar River Clinic.

Read more about it here:

A New Approach to Pregnancy Medical Clinics Leads to Abortion Clinc Shutdown in Yakima

In February 2010, Lenette Lindemann asked God how to pray against the late-term abortion chain that had been started in Yakima 30 years earlier. Mrs. Lindemann was running the Life Choices Pregnancy Medical Clinic in the same city. “God told me to pray for ‘the whirlwind’,” she told AIW in a recent interview.

Mrs. Lindemann did a study of the Bible for references to ‘whirlwind’ and prayed Proverbs 10:25 daily around Cedar River Clinic, run by Beverly Whipple. Cedar River had 3 locations then: Yakima, Tacoma, and Renton. Now they have two. The Yakima clinic closed 9 months to the day after Lindemann had that conversation with God. November 15, 2010, was the last day babies were killed at Cedar River Yakima.

But prayer wasn’t the only ingredient in the closing of Yakima’s most infamous and oldest abortion mill. Ms. Lindemann also went on a mission to save babies from death at Ms. Whipple’s hand with more earthly (though not secular) measures. One of the biggest single changes she made was to take the fledgling ultrasound capabilities and expand them aggressively. Research has shown that up to 75-85% of pregnant mothers, even those who are intent on abortion, end up choosing life for their babies after seeing them on an ultrasound. This has prompted many pregnancy resource centers (PRCs) to upgrade themselves into Pregnancy Medical Clinics (PMCs). This requires a medical director, a nurse trained in ultrasound, and of course ultrasound equipment.

Mrs Lindemann told us that Life Choices was doing just 50 ultrasounds a year, and the volunteer nurse was ‘working from home’, waiting to be called in if she was needed. This wasn’t acceptable to Mrs. Lindemann. She was on a mission. First, she led a move to hire nurses to perform the ultrasounds.  She found that retired nurses made excellent candidates, wanting to work part-time to supplement their retirement and were willing to work for less than the standard hourly nursing rate.  She eventually developed a staff of four nurses with three of them certified in ultrasonography.  “Volunteers are wonderful resources, serving in so many capacities … but when life is on the line I wanted to know that my staff was going to be there when that abortion vulnerable woman came through our doors.”

She actually served as a volunteer executive director and used her salary to pay the nurses. And she trusted God to provide the rest.

Having more trained staff and having them on site during work hours meant ultrasounds could be offered to more pregnant clients immediately, more days a week. Even then they were not open full time, but the number of ultrasounds went up to 250 a year from 50. She thinks this was a critical factor in putting Cedar River out of business.

When it was reported by the local newspaper that the Cedar River Yakima clinic was closing, their CEO Bev Whipple implied that she felt it was because of competition from the local Planned Parenthood. She failed to mention a large lawsuit that had been filed against her organization seeking millions of dollars in damages over a botched abortion. She also made no mention of the additional pressure from a faithful group of individuals who prayed outside the clinic weekly for years. “The fact is that Cedar River Yakima is one of the few abortion clinic closings in the state, and shows what God can do,” noted Mrs. Lindemann.

She’s not resting. She believes just as God shut down Cedar River, He can shut down the Planned Parenthood abortion giant also. “God wants to show us he can do big things.” Mrs. Lindemann has now moved onto mobile ultrasounds and has started up a dedicated company, ImagePoint Mobile Medical Services, to go right where women are. She knows that the abortion industry is doing everything it can to fasttrack women from pregnancy test to dead baby as quickly as possible so they don’t have the time to research, breathe, and consider what they’re doing. Mobile ultrasound units will let her reach more women with life-saving, scientifically accurate and factual information that Planned Parenthood doesn’t want them to have.

Image Reflections

Thankful! That’s the word that’s been running through my mind and not because we’ve just celebrated our national holiday. I’m overflowing with gratitude to the Lord, for the many valiant hearts He is touching to help make Image Point Mobile Medical Services a reality!

mobile unit copyAt-risk women susceptible to abortion are facing a looming pivotal crisis-point in their ability to make fully informed decisions about their pregnancies. National expansion of abortion-on-demand is being prepared for implementation through radical health care mandates. All of which will necessitate even greater access to high-quality ultrasound images be made available. Image Point Mobile Medical Services is being raised up for such a time as this.

We’re a unique and innovative non-profit within the context of life-affirming pregnancy medical centers. Kind of like an elite, highly trained and strategic Special Forces mobile unit, that’s all about saving lives!

As we seek-out vulnerable women who are staggering towards the destruction of abortion and lovingly provide life-affirming ultrasound services for them, lives will be spared and futures protected.

Image Point MMS has the sacred vision and call to safeguard innocent unborn children and their mothers. We understand the future is now, the future is mobile, and through your generous equipping, together we can touch the future lives of many generations yet to be born!
