Day of Silent Solidarity

If you have been searching for a way to stand up for the lives of the unborn, then the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity is the opportunity for which you have been waiting. On October 23, students from across the nation will wear red duct tape on their arm or their mouth to signify their decision to give up their voice for a day in honor of the unborn who have no voice.

There is no charge for participating. Last year thousands of schools were involved in the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity.

Bryan Kemper, founder of Stand True Ministries, which organizes the event, said he doesn’t want students to be legalistic about their silence. Instead, if an opportunity to talk about one’s convictions for life arises, it is better to take advantage of the situation.

A participant in last year’s Silent Day said, “I spoke to about six or seven pregnant girls and about four of them told me that they were thinking about getting abortions, but after we talked they changed their minds. It was just an awesome day.”

Check out for more information, flyers to distribute to explain your silence and a list of participating schools. If your school is not listed, go ahead and sign them up!
