Abortion Testimonies
One of the greatest consolations for those who have had their children aborted is to be able to help others avoid that tragedy. Testimonies by the thousands continue to be gathered by pro-life organizations and other counseling agencies who, more and more, are dealing with the destructive effects of the violent act of abortion as they impact the mother of the child.

The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a Campaign whereby Christians make the public aware of the devastation abortion brings to women and men. The campaign seeks to expose and heal the secrecy and silence surrounding the emotional and physical pain of abortion.  There are over 1,600 testimonies posted on the Campaign website.

We post here the testimonies of individuals who have asked us to use their stories to help others. If you have a testimony, send it to us at testimony@priestsforlife.org

The Healing Process

Once Upon a Time
Diana
KY, United States
"The young woman wasn’t told that when she had her “counseling” at the abortion clinic she was going to walk out a totally different person than when she came in.  The young woman’s confidence went to zero...She began worrying and subconsciously being self-destructive, not feeling like she ever fit in anywhere or was ever really loved by anyone."

Complicit
