Abortion Testimonies
One of the greatest consolations for those who have had their children aborted is to be able to help others avoid that tragedy. Testimonies by the thousands continue to be gathered by pro-life organizations and other counseling agencies who, more and more, are dealing with the destructive effects of the violent act of abortion as they impact the mother of the child.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a Campaign whereby Christians make the public aware of the devastation abortion brings to women and men. The campaign seeks to expose and heal the secrecy and silence surrounding the emotional and physical pain of abortion.  There are over 1,600 testimonies posted on the Campaign website.

We post here the testimonies of individuals who have asked us to use their stories to help others. If you have a testimony, send it to us at testimony@priestsforlife.org

To Change One Mind
Jill
MO, United States
"I found healing and forgiveness through Jesus Christ and Surrendering the Secret.  If I could help just one person change their mind and not follow through with the abortion then it would have all been worth it, and that's why I am silent no more."

Forgiveness and Worth
Joanne
MA, United States
"As time went on my horrible feelings about myself began to subside, but only after many years.  It was not until last year, when my baby would have been 35 years old if she had lived, that I finally felt a real sense of forgiveness and worth ."

Stop and Think
Jennifer
FL, United States
"I looked very deeply into myself and relationships. I looked at the empty lonely pit my life had become. I came to believe that perhaps not one of the women involved in my abortion were capable of helping me. I forgive them. I forgive myself. Most important, I realized, I was never really alone. "

Now I Have Peace
Carolyn
AR, United States

Grave Consequences
Phyllis
AR, United States
"I kept thinking, 'If I just don't think about what I am doing, and I just go ahead and do it, it will all be over and I can forget about it.' What I did not understand were the grave spiritual and emotional consequences that I would have to face for years because of my abortion."

Badly Scarred
Julie

Not Lucky
Lynn
AZ, United States
"At the age of 17 in the year 1975, that was not my choice.  That is not what I wanted to do with my body. That is not what God hoped for me to do with my body and the life of my unborn child. On that day, I gave up control of my body and I have regretted it every single day since."

I Must Tell My Story

A Lie of a Life
Jackie
NE, United States

You CAN Do It!
Vickie
CA, United States
"You can't study while pregnant.  You can't be in school while pregnant. You can't find a job while pregnant. Society tells you “you can't.” You can't, you can't, you can't, you can't, you can't. Abortion disempowers women. It says you're not woman enough to handle pregnancy. "

Other Choices
Juliet
TX, United States
"I regret my decision, and I wish and hope that me talking about my experience will stop people from avoiding abortion."

Deep Pain
Amy
TX, United States
"As I tried to move past, it I found that I could not and the pain and mourning after the abortion was more than I could bear as we discussed human development during school.  I cried to myself, hoping no one could see, as we discussed the age in utero when the baby has a heartbeat, because it was the week that I aborted my first child."

I Know the Power of Healing
Angelina
ON, Canada

Abortion Changed Me
Julia
ON, Canada
"It took me two weeks to call the post-abortion support group for help.  I journeyed with other men and women through a healing process and shared my secret in a confidential, safe place.  I learned the most wonderful things: My baby is real! She is with God. It is OK to grieve."  Julia's testimony from the 2017 March for Life Ottawa

Emptiness Inside Me

Releasing the Burden

Truth Can Lead to Healing
Elaine
SK, Canada
"After the abortion my addictive behavior became much worse. I married the father of the aborted child, and we had our first child exactly a year to the due date of the aborted child.

A Second Chance
David
ON, Canada
"I lost what I was trying to save with the abortion.  I sacrificed my children on the altar of my ambition. Addictions came into my life as I tried to run from the pain. My misery drove me to my knees and I gave my life to Jesus and eventually became Catholic in 1995."  David's testimony from the 2017 March for Life in Ottawa

Emotional Scarring
Olga
BC, Canada
"The physical healing came, but the emotional scarring never got better.   Having an abortion, I realize now, was the most selfish thing I have done in my life.   Many, many years later I came to accept God’s forgiveness, but forgiving myself took many decades."  Olga's testimony at the 2017 March for Life in Ottawa

My Older Brother

God's Mercy
Anita
SK, Canada
"Right after the abortion I started having trouble sleeping. I became very anxious about insignificant things, had anxiety attacks and became progressively more depressed.  My faith had always been a very big part of my life, but at this point I turned away from God because I believed that I could not be forgiven for what I had done."  Anita's testimony from the 2017 March for Life in Ottawa
