Hey pro-lifers of all generations! My name is Warren D’Souza and I am currently a high school senior from Skokie, Illinois. I’ve always been a strong and devout Catholic but only recently did my activism in the pro-life movement take foothold in my life.
In the Summer of 2011, my best friend and I spent many hours volunteering at The Women’s Center in northern Chicago. TWC is a crisis pregnancy center that helps impoverished mothers choose the gift of life for their children in a friendly, supportive environment.
Through TWC I learned of Generations for Life and the Pro-Life Action League, and soon became a part of the summer Face the Truth Tours. Immersing myself into the network of pro-life leaders like John Jansen and Joe Scheidler was an incredible turning point in my life, and I found myself wanting more and more to stay active in both my faith and this noble cause.
In my public high school I make myself known as the “Resident Catholic Dude” for discussions on faith and morality with people of all religious backgrounds. I consider myself open-minded and welcome to discussion with all faiths. I am a very academic fellow, a member of my school’s Math Team and other academic clubs. I am searching for a career in math and statistics while maintaining strong ties with my church and the pro-life movement.
I live for the beach, I love biking around with my friends, and I’m a big fan of playing volleyball when I get the time. My schedule can get hectic, but I always make time to enjoy life (and defend it!). Thanks for hearing me out and I look forward to contributing to the Generations for Life blog!
