Staten Island, NY – Leaders of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, the world’s largest network of women and men harmed by abortion, today decried a Yale student’s controversial performance art project scheduled to be exhibited next week. The project purports to document the young woman being artificially inseminated and then self-aborting her unborn children.
“I’m relieved that the student in question has admitted that she didn’t really become pregnant for this project and that no innocent people had to die for her so-called art,” said Georgette Forney, co-founder of SNMAC. “While initially shocking, though, the project is really just a natural extension of the abortion mindset’s utilitarian view that unborn children are expendable. After all, if embryonic human beings can be destroyed for the sake of science, why can’t they be killed in the name of art?”
“When people are treated like things, we all suffer,” added Janet Morana, another co-founder of SNMAC. “The lie that unborn children are not children is a cancer that has resulted in the kind of calloused hearts and minds that would conceive and approve of a project like this. It’s not just that the project is offensive, it diminishes human life.”
Since the launching of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 2,326 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 200 gatherings in 44 states and six countries where more than 15,000 spectators have heard the truth about abortion’s negative aftereffects. 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.
The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit http://www.silentnomoreawareness.org/
