Tomorrow morning students from thousands of schools around the world will refuse to speak as a protest against the killing innocent children. Every day in America almost 4000 human persons are killed by surgical abortion. The Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity, a project of Stand True, Christ-Centered Pro-life is observed by hundreds of thousands of students who will lose their voice in solidarity with their brothers and sisters who will never have a voice. Last year Stand True heard back from participants over 80 girls who canceled their abortions on the day of the event due to the efforts of the students.
“By refusing to speak the students create a huge buzz and abortion will be the most talked about subject on campus,” said Bryan Kemper, President of Stand True Ministries. “This generation is fed up with the senseless violence of abortion as is determined to bring an end the abortion holocaust.”
Students will not only remain silent; they will also wear red armbands and/or red duct tape on their mouths, and distribute educational flyers to anyone who asks why they are silent. Many home-schooled students will also participate in the event by visiting local malls and other public areas to distribute flyers.
Students are instructed to be respectful to teachers and other officials and to speak with them when required.
“Students for Life is proud to co-sponsor the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity. It is critical that we, the pro-life generation, take a stand for Life in our society, and I can think of no better way than standing in silent solidarity with the millions of pre-born Americans who do not have a voice. We stand in silent solidarity with them so that through our silence, they may have a voice.”
“As a father, youth leader and national pro-life leader, I believe we must give young people the tools to stand up for their faith and convictions,” said Jeff White, founder of Survivors. “The pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity is one of the most effective avenues for young people to take a stand for the most important cause of their generation; the fight for life.”
Over the past few years many schools have tried to stop students from participating and have tried to quash their First Amendment rights. Every year, attorneys from the Alliance Defense Fund defend these students and file lawsuits to protect their rights.
There is no cost to participate in the event. Flyers are available for download in PDF format at www.silentday.org. Students can also follow the event on twitter at www.twitter.com/prolifeday
Legal help for students involved is available from the Alliance Defense Fund (1-800-TELL-ADF).
The Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity is a Project of Stand True – Christ Centered Pro-life and co-sponsored by Students for Life of America, Priests for Life and Survivors.
