Women who Regret their Abortions to Speak on NYC Streets

 

Silent No More Awareness Campaign


9/22/2003

       
   
 

For Immediate Release

After 30 years of America's abortion debate, the voices of women who have experienced abortion's devastating effects are being heard more loudly and in greater numbers. On Monday, September 22 at 12 noon, some of these voices will be heard on the streets of New York City, as participants in the Silent No More Awareness Campaign conduct one of numerous similar events taking place this month across the country.

The women will stand on 6th Avenue between 49th and 50th Street, holding signs that say "I Regret My Abortion" and speaking about their abortion experience.

The Campaign, a joint project of NOEL (The National Organization of Episcopalians for Life)* and Priests for Life, seeks to raise awareness about the harm abortion does to women and their families, and about the many healing programs available. Actress, model and author, Jennifer O’Neill, who had an abortion, is the national celebrity spokesperson for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. Singer and actress Melba Moore also had abortions and will be present at the September 22nd gathering.

According to Georgette Forney, who had an abortion at age 16, and is now National Director of NOEL, and co-founder of the Campaign, "Hearing woman after woman speak about the problems created by abortion really puts this issue in perspective. Despite the sadness of each woman's story we are also able to share the help we've found to deal with the pain, which gives those still hurting hope."

"We want to help women who are hurting from abortion find peace and healing. This campaign will let them know they're not alone," says Janet Morana, Associate Director of Priests for Life and Co-Founder of the Campaign.

*NOEL was renamed Anglicans for Life in March 2007
