:Youth pro-life organizations ask teens to protest Obama on health care
ARLINGTON, VA- Next Tuesday, September 8, 2009, President Barack Obama will address America's returning students in a special address to welcome them back to the classroom. The speech, originally planned to discuss how America's youth could assist the needs of the President, was altered today and will instead address personal education goals.

In an effort to counter the Obama Administration's pro-abortion agenda, Students for Life of America
, Stand True Ministries
, and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust
have joined forces and are encouraging high school students to make their voices heard and take action.
They are asking that on Tuesday, September 8, 2009, pro-life students wear plain, white t-shirts with "Abortion Is Not Health Care" written in large letters across the front in an effort to protest the President's current support for nationalized health care that will include government funded abortions.
Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America, remarked, "Students for Life acknowledges the very real danger in passing a nationalized health care plan, and we are doing everything we can to raise awareness about the dangers in this bill. On Tuesday, high school students will show that they do not support any health care legislation which proposes government funded abortions."
Bryan Kemper, President of Stand True Ministries, has similar sentiments: "By very virtue of Obama addressing our students in the classroom at such a critical time when he is dropping in the polls for his radical healthcare reform policies, it is important that students understand that this will be the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade. Students need to wear their homemade shirts and show school administration, staff, and faculty that indoctrination stops with them."
Jeff White, Co-Founder of Survivors, remarked, "I saw recently President Obama in a 2nd grade class on a little chair talking with the students. I wonder if he told them that just eight years ago he advocated the right to kill them."
