Students Take Vow of Silence to Protest Abortion

Thousands of students from campuses in the U.S., Canada and several other countries were expected to vow silence, on Oct. 23, in protest of the millions of abortions that destroy human life every year.

The fourth annual Day of Silent Solidarity is sponsored by Stand True Ministries, a youth-oriented, pro-life organization. During the daylong event students will wear red armbands to symbolize the spilled blood of abortion victims while others will wear red tape over their mouths as a reminder of aborted babies’ silent cries.

“Thousands of American babies are permanently silenced every day by the violent act of abortion,” said Bryan Kemper, president of Stand True. “This day is in honor of those children, and we will stay silent as an act of solidarity with these innocent victims.”

Students are advised to “respect” professors and speak to them when required. But if asked by other students why they aren’t speaking, students will silently distribute educational flyers about abortion and its effects. Though some schools have unsuccessfully tried to ban this event, sponsors say they have seen lives saved as a result of previous days of silence.

“Last year we heard back from 16 girls who canceled their abortion appointments because of this event,” Kemper said. “We are expecting over 100,000 students to participate this year, and they are excited to have a united opportunity to stand up for babies with fellow students from around the country in a peaceful and effective manner.”
