University of Toronto Students for Life (UTSFL) is a student-run club committed to proclaiming and defending the dignity of all human life from fertilization to natural death.

We seek to do this by educating the University of Toronto community on the right to life and advocating for human rights for all human beings. We oppose abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem cell research and all other acts which fail to protect and affirm the dignity of human life. We work to connect members of the University of Toronto community with resources and support for alternatives to abortion, and healing from the trauma of abortion.
