UCO Pro-life group?


As I have been in college for the past three weeks, an old desire has awoken in me.In me is the desire to start a pro-life group on campus. A group at the University of Central Oklahoma. Right now, I just want to get my grades up, and focus on my classes, but the planning of this group is going on 24/7 in the background of my thoughts. I'm doing my best trying to figure out the student government and it's procedures and layouts, trying to see what groups will protest me the most. Since I'm in the school of music at UCO, where a great population of the performance majors are homosexual, I get the feeling I'm about to become a very hated man among my peers if I go through with it. I question if I'm strong enough to take the kind of verbal abuse that's sure to come my way. One of the strongest liberal groups on campus is GATE, the Gay Alliance for Tolerance and Equality. They remind me of the pro-choice group at UNT. The pro-life movement in Oklahoma is almost non-existent here in Oklahoma. The parishes are more concerned with the death penalty around here. The last time I went on a march for life around here, nobody flicked me off. I question wether anybody really cares enough for me to start a group. The fact that there's no pro-choice group, or a 'feminist' group just makes that doubt stronger. If there aren't people who care strongly enough for one side or the other to start a group, why should there be a group anyway? Should I get the help of my archdiocese, or should I make it an independent group with lots of Christian students from other denominations? I know I don't want the group overrun by the college republicans.

God, whatever you will for me, please open those doors for me.
