Fall is upon us. It’s finally time for the leaves to change color, you can enjoy pumpkin spice lattes before class, go apple picking with your family, wear cozy knit sweaters, and of course eat way too much Halloween candy! But amidst all the excitement and joy we cannot forget that every day in America over 3,000 lives are taken by abortion. That is ¼ 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. On October 20th, 2015, students from all across the nation will give up their voices for a day in solidarity for these children because their voice was not heard. We ask that you wear a red arm bands or red duct tape 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. Help us end the killing! Will you join us? * 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.
