College Campuses Set for Silence in Abortion Protest

Tens of Thousands of young people across the country will sacrifice their voices tomorrow for the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity, and they will do it in honor and memory of a young abortion abolitionist and her unborn daughter who were killed in a car accident Oct. 8 in Georgia.

"Tomorrow, students will be sending a loud and clear message that abortion must end and all innocent human life must be protected from conception to natural death," says event organizer Bryan Kemper, founder Stand True Ministries and youth outreach director for Priests for Life.

"The day is about sacrifice and that is why it is fitting that this year's event is dedicated to Kortney Blythe Gordon and her baby Sophy. Kortney was a beacon of light and sacrificed more than anyone can ever imagine in her fight as an abortion abolitionist."

Gordon, 28, was a field director for Students for Life of America.

For the eighth annual Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity, students at 1,200 colleges, high schools, middle schools and home schools have pledged to remain silent in solidarity with thousands of unborn children permanently silenced by abortion every single day.

"Last year, we heard back from 64 girls who canceled their abortions because of the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity and dozens of kids who changed their hearts and are now pro-life," Kemper says. "These are just the ones we have heard back from; we have no idea how many lives were actually saved. But we do know that just one life makes this whole day worth the effort."

The Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity is a project of Stand True and Priests for Life and is co-sponsored by LifeNews.com, Students for Life of America and Survivors.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life asked, "Are you willing to give up your voice for a day for those who will never have a voice?"

Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund are offering free legal assistance to public school students who participate in the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity if their rights protected by the First Amendment are violated.
