WASHINGTON, D.C. — When NARAL Pro-Choice America and its supporters meet in Washington, D.C. on Feb. 4 to celebrate 41 years of legal abortion – and the 55 million children killed since 1973 – the women of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign will be there to provide a dose of the truth.

For the ninth consecutive year, Nancy Tanner, regional coordinator for Northern Virginia, and other women from the campaign will hold their iconic signs that say, “I Regret My Abortion,” both before and after the dinner at the Washington Hilton.

“The NARAL attendees – who in the past have included former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and many of the nation’s top pro-choice lawmakers – have to pass through this silent gauntlet before they can ‘celebrate’ the fact that millions of American women have been hurt by this procedure,” said Ms. Tanner. “We don’t speak a word, but we know they hear our message.”

In the past, she said, women headed into the banquet will say quietly to her that they, too, regret their abortions, then urge her to keep her message to herself.

“This is the truth of abortion,” she said. “Even women who call themselves pro-choice know this procedure is bad for women, but they are afraid to speak out. We are not afraid to tell the truth.”

Ms. Tanner said women — men are welcome as well — from the campaign will meet at the hotel at 6:30 p.m., with their signs. After all the NARAL party-goers are inside, the Silent No More contingent will have dinner at another location, but will be back in position before the abortion celebration is over.

“It’s not an easy thing to be among these women who are so hostile to our message,” Ms. Tanner said. “But it’s vital they see us there. We can’t miss an opportunity to bring them face-to-face with the truth.”

Janet Morana, co-founder of Silent No More, said the pro-choice movement is built on the assumption that abortion is a good choice for women.

“But the women who have actually made that choice know it was the worst decision they could have made,” she said. “That’s why they are Silent No More.”

The Washington Hilton is at 1919 Connecticut Ave. NW.

Since the launch of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 5,715 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 1,325 gatherings in 48 states and 17 countries. More than 14,979 people representing 77 countries are registered to be Silent No More. Raising awareness about the hurtful aftermath of abortion and the help that is available to cope with the pain are two of the Campaign’s goals. The Campaign has over 2,014 testimonies posted here, with over 293 that are shared via video!

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit our website: www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org

Studends for Life Undercover!

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Students for Life went undercover while Black prolife leaders led by Pastor John Peyton of Reconciliation Church prayed.

Pastor John Peyton together with myself organized a group of black pro-life activists and and attended the ‘We Are Women’ rally in Washington, DC this last Saturday, August 18. Armed with signs and t-shirts depicting Tonya Reaves, the young lady who dies after having an abortion at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Chicago, and the abortionist who called the black babies that he murders as, those “ungly black babies.” They dialogued with raly attendees, were called names like the “N” word, and were even asked to leave. But they prayed, informed and were tough life warriors. See pictures at Priests for Life’s Frontlines.

Students for Life of America’s very own Sarah Maher & Beth O’Malley visited the We Are Women Rally in Washington, DC on Saturday, August 18th and handed out postcards exposing Planned Parenthood. To read what they had to say about the event, click HERE

A Word to “Pro-Choice” lawmakers: The Voters are Watching

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STATEN ISLAND, NY – Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement regarding Tuesday’s House vote on the D.C. Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, H.R. 3803, which called for a ban on abortions after 20 weeks in the District of Columbia.

“As he led the debate against the D.C. Pain Capable Unborn Child Act last evening, Rep. John Conyers warned his pro-abortion colleagues that Planned Parenthood and NARAL would be scoring the vote.

“The act did not garner the necessary two-thirds vote to pass, but I would like to issue a warning of my own to those who opposed the bill: The American people will be keeping score as well, and they will remember in the voting booth the politicians who are so afraid of the powerful abortion lobby that they voted down an effort to save fully formed babies from the unimaginable pain of being torn limb from limb.

“An overwhelming majority of Americans are against late-term abortion and they will demand that their lawmakers have the integrity to represent them, rather than bowing to Planned Parenthood and NARAL.”

Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit Priests for Life.

Fr. Pavone Asks Abortion Advocates To Join Him In Decrying Attack Against Colorado Pro-Lifers

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, denounced today the acts of violence committed against pro-life activists Keith and Jennifer Mason and Everett Stadig.

Fr. Pavone has also called upon organizations and leaders that support legal abortion to denounce this violence, which followed a Newsweek profile on the Masons and their Personhood USA movement.

“Where are the voices of Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and other abortion advocacy groups when violence is perpetrated on pro-life people? These groups are heard loud and clear when violence is done to supporters of their philosophy. It would be nice to see some consistency here,” Fr. Pavone stated.

Early on Wednesday, June 27, someone threw a 45-pound boulder through the front door of the Mason’s suburban Denver home, the couple lives with their three young children. Mrs. Mason is nine months pregnant with their fourth child. For security reasons, the Masons have had to leave their home.

On Saturday, June 30, Stadig, a Personhood volunteer, was attacked while gathering signatures on a petition outside a grocery store in another Denver suburb. The 69-year-old was knocked to the ground and later had to have hip replacement surgery.

Whether or not the two attacks were related, Mason said that “spiritually, they’re connected. We have no doubt of that. Some of the more fringe activists in the pro-abortion movement will act. I think they feel threatened by what we’re doing.”

In May, a pro-abortion extremist pleaded guilty to threatening the life of Father Pavone and Princeton University scholar Robert George. Theodore Schulman faces up to four years in prison at his sentencing in September.
