National Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity: October 17, 2017

On Tuesday October 17th, 2017, students from all across the nation will give up their voices in solidarity with around 2,500 lives taken by abortion every day, whose voices will never be heard.

This is 1/5 of our generation – our brothers, our sisters, our friends, our peers. Over 56 million children have died from abortion since 1973, when Roe v. Wade legalized the killing of pre-born children. They were not given the chance to experience life outside of their mother’s womb, the joy of seasons changing, holidays, and family gatherings.

We ask that you wear a red arm band or red duct tape over your mouths to identify that you are taking part in the National Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity. You can also wear a pro-life t-shirt to show your support. Take a vow of silence for the day, acting in solidarity for those who have been silenced forever. We are remembering those who were lost and hurt by abortion by giving up our voices and remaining in solidarity. Will you join us?

Please note: Some schools will allow you to participate but not allow you to duct tape your mouths because of safety concerns. This is a legitimate concern so please adhere to their policy if this is the case for your school. If you have an assignment in class where you have to speak, your teacher can require you to participate. If you have a speaking assignment that day, ask your teacher if you can reschedule it.

Prayer Vigil for a Proper Funeral for the Babies Murdered by Gosnell

Two months ago, a Philadelphia, PA jury convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell of three counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of three infants born alive during his failed abortion attempts.  During the investigation, 45 babies in total were discovered in Gosnell’s House of Horrors abortion facility, most of whom were in pieces, saved in jars, juice containers, and in plastic bags in the freezer.

These babies are still being kept by the Medical Examiner’s Office in Philadelphia, where they are being held indefinitely, despite the outcries for their release for proper burial.  The Chief Medical Examiner has yet to say what will be done with these babies, nor why he will not release them for burial.

This Friday, Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America, will be joining Bryan Kemper, Priests for Life Youth Outreach Director, and Reverend Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition, in leading a prayer vigil outside the Medical Examiner’s Office to pray for justice and a final peace for these 45 children.

Now is the time to act before a decision is made to cremate or discard these babies in the trash as medical waste!  After the horror and pain they experienced in life we owe these children the honor of a funeral and the remembrance of their lives that touched our nation.

All are invited to join in prayer this Friday, July 19th from 10:00 – 11:00 am ET outside of the Medical Examiner’s Office at:

321 University Avenue
Philadelphia, PA 19104

For those who are not able to gather this Friday in Philadelphia we urge you to make your voice heard by contacting the Medical Examiner’s Office at 215-685-7458 and asking for the release of these babies for burial.
