Pro-life students urged to respond to Obama's speech

President Obama speaks to the nation's students on Tuesday, and pro-life groups are asking them to make a symbolic response.

Several student pro-life groups are combining their efforts to get a message across at school. One of them is Stand True, and Bryan Kemper is the president. He says the idea is to voice opposition to the healthcare reform bill.
"The agenda that he's been pushing with abortion as a mandate in this so-called healthcare bill, and we felt like this is a great opportunity for young people to take a stand and say that abortion is not healthcare and it doesn't belong in any kind of healthcare bill," Kemper explains.
He tells OneNewsNow young people are an appropriate source to combat abortion because 4,000 children per day die due to abortion.
"We're asking students to wear a shirt that they can make themselves that just says "abortion is not healthcare" or another pro-life shirt to make a stand this Tuesday when he addresses the students," Kemper suggests.
He also urges the students to fill out their attached surveys and respectfully plead with the president to take a stand against the killing of innocent children.
