TROY, Ohio, Oct. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- Stand True, Christ-Centered Pro-life, will hold its fourth annual Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity on Tuesday, Oct. 23. As of this morning tens of thousands of students from over 4,000 campuses world wide have registered to take part in this groundbreaking event. Stand True expects more than 100,000 students to stand in solidarity with each other to bring attention to the holocaust that is killing almost 4,000 babies every day in the United States alone.
"The students are speaking loud and clear, they want an end to legalized child killing" said Bryan Kemper, president of Stand True Ministries. "We are getting thousands of e-mails, comments and internet messages from students thanking us for giving them a peaceful way to stand up and be counted."
Here are just a few of the comments we have received from the students.
"I was almost aborted! So I am standing for all the babies who weren't as lucky as me."
"I'd just like to say that abortion is just utterly wrong. My mom had two abortions before me and she suffers from the emotional scares everyday. I always wondered what it would be like to have an older brother or sister and I'll never know."
"This is one of the most powerful and influential stands I've ever been called to be a part of, awesome guys."
"All I want to say is I once was pregnant and didn't even think about what I was doing when I had an abortion. At the time it seemed like a good idea, but then I realized what I had done and felt so horrible. I just couldn't help it, I started crying. Then I heard about this and wanted to be a part of it. I want to give a voice to the child I didn't have, so I really take this to the heart and will do this with much amore!"
"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 will not only remain silent but 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.
Participating students are instructed to be respectful to teachers and other officials and to speak with them when required.
Over the past few years many schools have tried to stop students from participating and quash their First Amendment rights. Every year, attorneys from the Alliance Defense Fund defend these students and file lawsuits to protect their rights.
The Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity is not even here yet and we have already heard back from one girl who changed her mind about abortion after reading the website" said Kemper. "Last year we heard back from 16 girls who cancelled their abortion appointments because of this event."
There is no cost to participate in the event. Flyers are available for download in PDF format at www.silentday.org or www.standtrue.com.
Legal help for students involved is available from the Alliance Defense Fund (www.telladf.org or 1-800-TELL-ADF).
