TROUDSBURG, Pa., Jan 30 (LSN) – Last week the New York Times reported on a rock concert called “Rock for Life.” The event, organized by Chris Francz, a “hard-core” music fan, is one of a series founded by Bryan Kemper to counter “Rock for Choice” (pro-abortion Rock musicians who hold concerts to raise money to support abortion). Young people packed the concert hall as eight rock bands played loud music but interspersed their numbers with pro-life messages.  Cathy Brown, the 26-year-old daughter of Judy Brown, founder of American Life League, spoke to the crowd during a break. Brown told the group “Every day, 4,400 children are killed by surgical abortion. This is your generation, you guys.”“One-third of your generation are gone. It’s your brothers and sisters and friends who would have been here today,” she said. Brown was received warmly, and proceeds from the concert will go to support a storefront counselling office to helping women to avoid the horrors of abortion.  The Times described the youths as believing abortion is a “violation of human rights far more heinous than slavery,” talking about it as a “holocaust”. The concert was also unique for the absence of alcohol, drugs, or sexual overtones. Band members and fans passed around Bibles and pro-abstinence information.
