Even as the leader of his university's pro-life campus group, John Mark Porter was reluctant to speak up about abortion.

"I sort of kept it to myself," he said. "I was pro-life...but I didn't really share that."

But when John Mark considered that abortion truly is "the biggest issue" of our time, he:

  • Became a bold and effective sidewalk counselor with his local 40 Days for Life campaign
  • Started a free babysitting program to help student moms finish school
  • Organized abortion debates on campus

John Mark's accomplishments building a campus pro-life movement earned him the 2020 4040 College Scholarship.
