Abortion is like an earthquake whose violent shockwaves unsettle the earth for hundreds of miles around. The loss of one child to abortion impacts everyone involved; the mother and father, the grandparents, the siblings, family and friends, even the abortion clinic workers and abortionists, and even pro-life advocates who can’t save every child.
To acknowledge and begin to repair the damage that abortion has sent rippling through our society, the Silent No More Awareness Campaign this year launched a new initiative at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. and the Walk for Life in San Francisco. Called Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion, the new initiative seeks to give a voice to all those who regret the abortion they took part in, and all those who mourn the loss of each innocent child.
During the Silent No More gathering at the March for Life and Walk for Life, Father Frank Pavone said, “This year, along with having women who say ‘I Regret My Abortion,’ along with having men who say ‘I Regret Lost Fatherhood,’ we have people holding signs saying ‘I Mourn My Aborted Sibling.’ We have people holding signs saying ‘I Regret Losing My Grandchild to Abortion.’ And we have people holding signs saying ‘I Regret Performing Abortions and Providing Abortions.’ This expansion of the witness today is part of the initiative called Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion. The theme is very simple: Abortion hurts everybody.”
