High school and college students across the country were joining a nationwide walkout Wednesday to protest legal abortion in the U.S.

The walkout, organized by pro-life students in Sacramento, California, is aimed at warning lawmakers that the “pro-life generation” will not stand for the killing of a fourth of their generation, according to the organization’s website.

Officially, students from 200 high schools and 80 colleges across America are participating in the walkouts, which are also aimed at protesting taxpayer-funded abortion.

“We will no longer watch as our leaders in Washington continue to fund our nation’s largest abortion vendor, Planned Parenthood, with more than $500 million of our taxpayer dollars,” it stated on the website.

The website for the pro-life walkout said students will participate in 17 minutes of silence and prayer, which represents the 10 pregnancies that would be terminated at the hand of Planned Parenthood during that time.

Rocklin High School student Brandon Gillespie spearheaded the event with organizational support from Student for Life of America.

Gillespie announced the pro-life walkout March 22 and said he organized it to “honor all the lives of the millions of aborted babies every year” and raise awareness of the “cruel injustices taking place at Planned Parenthood.”

    God bless these students participating in these pro-life protests against tax funded abortions. The abortion of the unborn in America and across the entire world is the number one issue facing humanity today. They should also protest to overturn Roe versus Wade that legalized abortion in America in 1973. Since Roe versus Wade became the law of the land close to sixty million unborn baby children have been killed by abortion in America alone. If this slaughter of the unborn continues America will face the wrath and judgement of Almighty God. End abortion now! Adoption is the loving option. Repent and convert! Jesus Christ King of Kings Lord of Lords True God and True man is coming back soon like a thief in the night. Pray America…

    The important thing is that God WILL
    bless these children. We already know
    the main stream media will NOT cover
    this event. What’s new?
