FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Staten Island, NY – Leaders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, the nation’s largest network of women and men harmed by abortion, today responded to Newsweek writer Anna Quindlen who asked in her latest column how much jail time women should serve if abortion were made illegal.
“To Anna Quindlen and anyone else I would say that women are already serving time for abortion right now in our own prisons,” said Georgette Forney, co-founder of SNMAC. “I know this from my own experience and the experiences of countless other women I know. No condescending dismissal of women’s torment by abortion ideologues can diminish the daily punishment of guilt, shame, and remorse post-abortive women experience.”
“It’s not mothers who should serve jail time for abortion,” added Janet Morana, also a co-founder of SNMAC. “The abortion profiteers and their shills in the press have been telling society for years that whatever it is that abortion terminates, it’s not a baby. This propaganda onslaught has taken its toll in women who believed that lie and who emphatically state today that had they known their child were not just a ‘clump of tissue,’ as abortionists told them, they would have never aborted. We should not and will not jail women who have been lied to for decades.”
Since the launching of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 2,326 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at 189 gatherings in 44 states and six countries where more than 15,000 spectators have heard the truth about abortion’s negative after-effects. More than 4,100 people 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.
