TROY, Ohio — The 11th annual Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 20.
Founded by Bryan Kemper, director of Stand True, the youth outreach of Priests for Life, the annual observance gives participants an opportunity to spread the word about the injustice of abortion without saying a word.
Students on thousands of campuses in dozens of countries are expected to take part in this year’s observance.
“Momentum is building right now in the fight to end the most deadly holocaust in history,” Kemper said. “The pro-life movement is growing in strength and resolve as Planned Parenthood is being exposed as the merchant of death it is. Every day people are asking me, “What can I do to stand up for the babies who are being killed by abortion? On Oct. 20, we can all be a voice for them by being silent for the day.”
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, added: “Fighting abortion requires us to act in solidarity with the babies abortion kills. By giving up our voices for a day, we remind others in a striking way that there is a whole segment of silent humanity waiting for us to recognize and protect them.”
