.- Students in 3,000 schools across 25 countries will participate in the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity today to protest against the killing of innocent children by refusing to speak, a pro-life group reports.

In addition to remaining silent, students will wear red armbands or place red duct tape on their mouths and distribute educational flyers. Many homeschoolers will participate by visiting local malls and other public areas to distribute flyers.

Student participants are instructed to be respectful towards teachers and other officials and to speak with them when required.

Stand True, Christ-Centered Pro-life, the Ohio-based organizer of the worldwide event, says that last year participants reported about 59 girls canceled their appointments for abortions because of the students’ efforts.

"By refusing to speak the students create a huge buzz and abortion will be the most talked about subject on campus," said Bryan Kemper, President of Stand True Ministries. "This generation is fed up with the senseless violence of abortion as is determined to bring an end the abortion holocaust."

Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life, commented that the event will allow pro-life students to honor those “permanently silenced” by the “violent act of abortion.”

The website for the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity is at http://www.silentday.org.
