Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, and in purity.
1 Timothy 4:12
It is your generation that has the potential to “slay the Goliath” of abortion in America. What are you doing to take a stand for life?
Here are some things you can do to stand for life in your schools, in your churches, among your friends and family, and in your community.
Prayer is the number 1, most important thing you can do to stand for life, because prayer moves the hand of God and only God can changes the heart’s of people back to their children. You can get a group together, or pray by yourself, every morning at the flagpole at your school before classes start or at the end of each school day. Especially on See You at The Pole day, which is usually in September. (http://syatp.com/)
You can also get a group together to hold Silent Sieges. What is a Silent Siege? “A Silent Siege is a stand in silent prayer on behalf of the nation that is murdering its children. We are standing in agreement with Jesus, the Great Intercessor, concerning the holocaust of abortion. We believe the Life Tape is a divine strategy from the Lord to both mobilize a massive movement of prayer and also to be a faithful witness to the nation.” To find out more click the photo link on the left.
2. Wear a Pro-Life T-Shirt

Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity: Can you lose your voice for one day for the millions of unborn babies who will never have a voice? Every year in October, many people willingly choose to lose their voice, by not speaking for a whole day, and wear red tape that says LIFE in order to stand up for the unborn who cannot stand up for themselves. They carry print-outs that explain why they have chosen to be silent. Will join them and take a stand for the 4,000 unborn babies who die everyday in this Nation, and for the more than 4,000 women and men wounded by abortion everyday?

Until Abortion Ends “Too many of us (under 40 years old) have been lost to abortion. Its time to share our voices with the voiceless and ake a small sacrifice for those who have been sacrificed. Stand with us. Give up something you love UNTIL ABORTION ENDS.”
Voices for the Voiceless is a pro-life group for teens by teens located in the East Valley area of Arizona. We believe teens are a generation called to take a stand for life, to the glory of God. Edmund Burke once said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Thus their group, called by God to do so, is currently acting to educate, inform, and equip teens to do something about the injustice of abortion, to the glory of God. their theme verses are found in Proverbs 31:8-9, in which God ushers a command for us as believers to act in obedience to him by being voices for those who have no voice.
White Rose Project In 1942, a group of students from the University of Munich began a campaign to shine the light of truth in Nazi Germany. The White Rose was a movement to educate the citizens Germany and prick their conscious about the atrocities ravaging their country. Though the danger was great, these students were determined to be a voice for victims of the Nazi Holocaust by educating the people of Germany. The White Rose believed the German people needed to know the truth and risked their lives to call them from apathy to action. In 2010, a collection of American Pro-life Youth have come together in the face of the abortion holocaust that has been plaguing our nation. They have seen the need to shine the light of truth and activate the youth of America to rise up and take a stand. We have lost over fifty million of our brothers and sisters to the Abortion Holocaust; the time has come to put a stop to this. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion chain in America and The White Rose Project is determined to defund and expose them for the evil abuses they commit and cover-up. Planned Parenthood is not only the largest child killing organization in America; they have been exposed time and time again for their cover up of child rape and sex trafficking across the country. We must take action today. Planned Parenthood cannot be allowed to continue their murderous reign on our generation. Join the White Rose Project and become a White Rose Activist today. This is your generation who is being targeted by Planned Parenthood; your generation must rise up to bring an end to the abortion holocaust and the organization that profits from the killing of the unborn.
