Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity

Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity is celebrated every third Tuesday in October. On this day, opponents of premature termination of pregnancy demonstrate their position – saving the life of the unborn. Some supporters of the pro-life movement wear red bandages on their wrists on this day, others seal their mouths with red tape – this symbolizes the voices of forever aborted children, who were allowed to sound like that.


The history of this holiday began in 2004, when Brian Kemper, along with students at McNeese University, asked how abortion could be stopped in the United States. According to the creators of the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity, this day was necessary to demonstrate to society the tacit support for the rejection of abortion. Supporters of the pro-life movement use red ribbons and red duct tape to demonstrate their position. The celebration of this day is sponsored by the non-profit organization Stand True, which was created by Kemper himself.

Interesting facts

  • in India and China, there is a ban on recognizing the sex of an unborn child using ultrasound or other methods: due to cultural and economic reasons, in these countries, the birth of boys is more desirable than the birth of girls, which leads to a large number of abortions;
  • out of 10 pregnancies, 6 end in abortion, but about 45% of them are unsafe, as they are carried out by an unqualified person or in inappropriate conditions that do not meet medical requirements: about 97% of abortions are performed in low-income developing countries;
  • Today, medical abortion is the safest: according to WHO official data, more than 90% of women who used this method of abortion were satisfied with the result, while only 74% of those surveyed were satisfied with the surgical one.
