International silent pro-life protest to take place Tuesday

.- Stand True Ministries is holding its Fourth Annual Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity on Tuesday October 23.  Tens of thousands of students from four thousand schools across the globe have registered to take part in the event.

Protesting students will remain silent and will also wear red armbands or red duct tape on their mouths.  They will distribute educational flyers to anyone who asks why they are silent.  Homeschooling students will participate by visiting malls and other public areas to distribute flyers.  Protestors are instructed to respect teachers and other public officials, speaking to them when required.

"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."

Mr. Kemper said the last year's event had some vital successes.  "Last year we heard back from 16 girls who cancelled their abortion appointments because of this event," he said.

Free flyers and other information about this protest are available at http://www.silentday.org or http://www.standtrue.com
