Abortion Protest Silences Students at Over 1,000 Campuses
FREDERICKSBURG, Va., October 25, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Today, students from over 1,000 campuses in the United States, Canada, the Philippines, England and Germany took a vow of silence to express their contempt for the murderous act of abortion that has claimed one-third of their generation and continues to take the lives of over 4,000 babies per day in the United States alone.Â The international event is sponsored by Stand True Ministries and known as the annual Students’ Day of Silent Solidarity.
“Thousands of American babies are permanently silenced every day by the violent act of abortion,” said Bryan Kemper, president of Stand True Ministries. “This day is in honor of those children, and we will stay silent as an act of solidarity with these innocent victims.”
Students not only remained silent, but also wore red armbands and or red duct tape on their mouths and distributed educational flyers to anyone who asked why they were silent. Many home-schooled students also participated in the event by visiting local malls and other public areas to distribute flyers.
“This year’s response to this event has been astounding,” said Kemper. “I am honored to be part of an event that has brought out so many young people who are willing to stand up for the truth in such a courageous and impacting way.”
“These students are excited to have a united opportunity to stand up for the babies with fellow students from around the country in a peaceful and effective manner,” said Kemper. “We have received many e-mails from students thanking us for giving them this opportunity, and telling us how excited they are to promote the event.”
