At Least 32 Babies Were Saved From Students' Efforts During the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity Yesterday


Stand True, Christ-Centered Pro-life, just wrapped up their Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity on Tuesday, Oct. 21. As of this morning Stand True has been contacted by students about 32 babies who have been saved. Student around the country are telling us about girls who changed their minds and chose life after reading literature or talking to pro-life students yesterday.


"I spent most of last night choking back the tears as I started to hear back from students," said Bryan Kemper, President of Stand True Ministries. "The stories kept coming in about girls deciding to keep their babies and hearts being changed."


Students from over 4,700 campuses in 25 countries took part in this life changing event yesterday. This is the fifth year of the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity and it keeps growing every year as more and more students are willing to give up their voice for those who will never have one.


Here are just a few of the comments we have received this year:


"I attend a Baptist college so I knew I wouldn't get much of a chance to spread the word so after my last class I went down to the mall and was there for about 20 minutes before a group of teenage girls walked up to me and asked what I was doing. I handed them a paper and one started to cry. I took off the tape and asked what was wrong. I found out that 2 of those girls had just set up an appointment for an abortion. We sat and talked for almost an hour; it was clear that God was at work. Not only did these girls cancel the appointment but I had the privilege to lead them to the Lord."


"I was surprised as to how much I prayed; I have never prayed that much in school, ever. There were originally five people doing it this morning and by the end of the day it doubled. I was super happy. You never know how many people are affected by the things you do."


"There was another woman considering abortion, so again I broke my silence and had a 15 minute tear-session/convo with her and she too opted for adoption! I'm so far beyond ecstatic and I am yet again radically affected by this!"


"I am honored and humbled to be part of this event," said Kemper. "I pray my own children will have the courage and conviction to match the kids who participated in the Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity."


Stand True and Students for Life of America are committed to continue to provide students with tools like the PLDSS, to help them be a voice for their generation. We know that the youth are not the leaders of the future; they the leaders of today.


Legal help for students involved is available from the Alliance Defense Fund ( or 1-800-TELL-ADF)
