The Christian pop rock band Casting Crowns is known for taking a stand and, today, the ban put their money where their mouth is when it comes to supporting the right to life for unborn children.

As Bryan Kemper, youth director for Priests for Life, relates, band members stopped by his organization’s national headquarters to grab some prolife T-shirts and let their fans know what they think about abortion.

“Casting Crowns came by the Stand True office to hang out and get some pro-life t-shirts to wear. Looking forward to their show tonight. It is a awesome to have a big band that is so vocally pro-life,” Kemper said.














Last year, Mark Hall, the lead singer of the band, endorsed the popular pro-life documentary 180, saying “This short documentary has totally rocked my world this week. PLEASE check it out…I dare you to watch 180.”

In January, Casting Crowns recent music video “Just Another Birthday” featured a pro-life story line. Below are some of the lyrics to the song.

In the company of strangers
In a cold and sterile room
All alone with a child inside me
And I don’t know what to do
Jesus, can You hear me
Come and heal my brokenness
Put the pieces back together
And be a Father to the fatherless

A Father to the fatherless

Twenty-one finds me
Blowing out candles and making wishes
And all around me
My barefoot princess twirls and sings
It’s so amazing
Looking back at all God’s brought us through
You are my happy birthday
And you were born to break the chains
