This is the generation that will abolish abortion

How did the silence of hundreds of thousands of students save hundreds of babies?

In the spring of 2004, a student from McNeese State University asked me, “What can I do to work with other students around the country, in solidarity, to help end abortion?”

I hear things like that all the time from the students I speak to. “What can I do? I have ideas, but I don’t know what to do with them. Can I really make a difference? I’m just one person.”

When this student asked me, a spark went off in my head.

I replied, “What if we got students to not only act in solidarity with others, but also with the children that are dying every day?” As soon as I said it, I knew God had set something in motion inside of me.

At the time, I was one person working from the basement of my home with a computer, a web site, and a small e-mail list that I had been collecting for a few months. I wasn’t really sure what could be accomplished with that, but I offered it to God and started sending out emails.

We asked the students to take a vow of silence for a day, wearing red duct tape with the word “life” or “silenced” and pass out fliers explaining their silence to fellow students. We asked them to wear pro-life t-shirts or make custom shirts with the pro-life message or wear red armbands to identify themselves as participants.

Now, something that started its first year as just a few thousand students from 300 campuses has grown into a world-wide outpouring of love and action. Tuesday, Oct 15th will mark the ninth annual Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity, and ever year we have students from thousands of campuses in dozens of countries stand together in solidarity. We have heard of over a thousand girls who have cancelled abortions because of this day every year.

Will you join us this year? Will you give up your voice for those who will never have one? Please go to silentday.org and register for this year’s Pro-life Day of Silent Solidarity on Tuesday, Oct 15th. Even if you have registered in years past, please register for this year.

Hearts are being changed, babies are being saved, and women and men are being spared the trauma of post-abortive pain. People are coming together in unity to promote a culture of life. Personhood is being restored on campuses across the nation.

I really cannot take any credit for the success of this movement. It is only God who grants us the power to do this. I was one person who listened to God and, through Him, acted on the vision He gave me.

If you have an idea, a vision or dream, don’t be afraid to stand up and let your voice be heard. Don’t doubt what you can accomplish with Christ. Don’t think that because you are just one person you can’t make a difference.

“I have a dream”–a statement powerfully spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and yet so much more than just words. He did not cower in the face of adversity. He spoke those words with passion and conviction. He challenged the world to stand up for the rights and equality of all men.

I, too, have a dream. I, too, will not cower in the face of adversity. I believe that, through Christ, we can restore personhood to the most innocent of our brothers and sisters: the children in the womb.

Today, 3,500 of my generation will be silenced.

Today 3,500 of my brothers and sisters lives will be ended simply because of their age.

Today, I will stand up and share my dream, my idea, and my vision with the world.

Will you stand with me?
