The nation's largest pro-life organization for youth has launched a website for college students, providing resources when they are facing unexpected pregnancies. 

The website is pregnantoncampus.org, which directs the reader to their state or a particular college campus and lists resources for adoption, scholarships, counseling and other needs. 

Beth Rahal of Students for Life of America says college students who unexpectedly become pregnant will most likely have to take longer to graduate, adding to the cost of their education, or choose to drop out.

There are approximately two million pregnancies a year among college women, and many of those end in abortion.

I am the pro-life generation 620x300"Actually about 46 percent of total abortions performed in the United Sates are obtained by college-age women," Rahal tells OneNewsNow.

She says pregnantoncampus.org originally launched two years ago to help their student groups to become more active. In the fall, the website launched with a new design to reach college-age women as well as student groups.

Rahal says Planned Parenthood targets college students facing unintended pregnancies.

The purpose of pregnantoncampus.org shows those students they can continue their education and raise a child, and not have to resort to an abortion, she says.
