Students nationwide who oppose abortion will remain silent on the third Tuesday of October, during the annual Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity.

During the event students place red tape with the word "life" written on it over their mouths, and some wear t-shirts or distribute literature that explains their anti-abortion position.

Bryan Kemper, the founder of the Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity began the day began in 2004. When a student at McNeese State University, a public higher education institution in Louisiana asked how they could work in solidarity with students across the country, a "spark went off" in his head, he said.

He said asked students to wear red duct tape and pass out fliers while remaining silent for the day, marking the first Pro-Life Day of Silent Solidarity. An event that once had a few thousand students now has thousands of student supporters on campuses across the globe who participate, Kemper said.
