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.

Locked Out of the Philly Med Examiner’s Office

PhillyPrayerToday, SFLA President Kristan Hawkins and a group of prominent pro-life leaders went to the Medical Examiner’s Office to attempt to claim the bodies of the 45 children Philadelphia, PA jury convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell killed. These babies are being held indefinitely, despite the outcries for their release for proper burial.

This is Kristan’s first hand account of what happened:

The prayer vigil coalition of Alliance Defending Freedom, Christian Defense Coalition, Stand True, Priests for Life and Students for Life went into the Medical Examiner’s Office beforehand to tell them we were doing a prayer vigil and then would be bringing five people to deliver a legal letter – no cameras, no protest signs in the building. They told us only grieving family and friends could come in. We said we were, as the law says that anyone can come in and claim an unclaimed body.

PhillyPrayer1We then went and held the prayer vigil and returned with Fr. Frank Pavone from Priests for Life, Rev. Pat Mahoney from Christian Defense Coalition, Bryan Kemper from Stand True Ministries, and Catherine Foster from Alliance Defending Freedom. As we were walking to the door, they hurried and locked it so we couldn’t get in!

They didn’t answer any of our knocks and said that we weren’t allowed in even though it’s a public building and we just wanted to drop off our letter (which asks where the babies are, if there is a plan for their burial, and how can we request to bury them).

PhillyPolicePolice came and took my personal information, then went in and talked to the people in the medical examiner’s office who refused to come out or let us come in. We asked the police to deliver our letter but they said they wouldn’t accept it. David Quain, Forensic Services Director, said it was over his head and plans have already been made for the babies but he wouldn’t tell us what they were.

We are issuing a national all call for pro-lifers to come here to stand for the dignity of Gosnell’s victims. It is called “A Cry for Dignity” and will take place on August 25 and 26 in Philly.

In the meantime, we urge you to make your voice heard by contacting the Medical Examiner’s Office at 215-685-7445 and asking for the release of these babies for burial.

Join lifeBLAST: A Pro-Life Social Media Project

lifeblastJoin the new movement to create a Social Media Buzz on pro-life issues to end abortion! We are creating a NEW project in conjunction with Stand True called lifeBLAST: A Pro-life Social Media Project to rally and promote pro-life events and projects through social media.

lifeBLAST exists to blast social media on pro-life issues and topics. It is a coalition of pro-life leaders, activists and social media experts who are committed to seeing successful pro-life campaigns. This is not just about an organization but a movement of the generation who WILL abolish abortion.

We want to bring together the grassroots pro-life movement with the leaders and organizations of the pro-life movement to spread our message far and wide. We saw what can be accomplished when we work together as a movement during the Who Is #Gosnell Tweetfest and want to keep the momentum going.

Utilizing various forms of social media networks, we will be able to promote events and projects and educate people on a global level. From our laptops, smart phones and tablets, we can become an army of social media activists who create the media we have so often sat around and waited for.

lifeBLAST will be a centralized location to launch social media campaigns and provide tools for those who want to be active in those campaigns. lifeBLAST will help with tweets, graphics, Facebook statuses, Instagram photos and more as we equip you to be a pro-life social media warrior!
