"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."
Wednesday, September 28, 2005
(Life News.com) Protests are normally an occasion to scream and shout about a political subject. However, next month, pro-life students will use a different tactic to protest abortion -- they'll keep their mouths shut in silence to make their message heard loud and clear. [...]
[S]tudents from hundreds of college and high school campuses in both the United States and Canada will take a vow of silence to express their contempt for abortion -- which has claimed one-third of their generation and continues to take the lives of over 4,000 babies per day in the United States alone.
This protest is being organized by Stand True Ministries which is holding the silent protests on October 25th. Those participating intend to seal their lips--literally--with red duct tape as well as distribute flyers about the reason for their silence. Of coarse, a protest can not be complete without the red arm bands, and many home schooled students plan on attending malls and other public arena's to broadcast their message.
"These students are excited to have a united opportunity to stand up for the babies with fellow students from around the country in a peaceful and effective manner," said [Bryan Kemper, president of Stand True Ministries]. "We have received many e-mails from students thanking us for giving them this opportunity, and telling us how excited they are to promote the event."
These protests will probably not only generate some media buzz (that is if they are "fair and balanced") but also some "forced exits" by security guards whose bosses probably will not appreciate the alternative viewpoint. In either case, pro life bloggers will probably be chatting about this event as the day approaches, and if lucky, the student body will be as well.
Editor's note: if harassed by mall security, contact American Center for Law and Justice for legal advice.
