Abstract: The Simple Loop Conjecture for $ 3$-manifolds states that if a $ 2$-sided map from a surface to a $ 3$-manifold fails to inject on the fundamental group, then there is an essential simple loop in the kernel. This conjecture is solved in the case where the $ 3$-manifold is Seifert fibered. The techniques are geometric and involve studying least area surfaces and circle actions on Seifert Fibered Spaces.
