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

In Recovery
Nicole
IL, United States
"Immediately after, I sat there in recovery, crying and bawling. I had wanted to keep my baby, but I was so sick. However, I immediately regretted my decision, and I felt like a horrible mother. I should’ve fought my way through the pregnancy."

Not Allowed
Janet
CA, United States

Voice for Life
Christina
NM, United States
"Growing up, I have witnessed the pain that my mom suffered from her abortion and I have witnessed my husband suffer because of an abortion from a previous relationship.  I didn't want any other siblings or parents have to go through the same pain."

Something Missing
Donna
PA, United States
"Time went by. I was a busy mom. I had to stuff all those feelings. I had no time to figure out what was wrong with me. But I still had that dark cloud hanging over me. Here I had a husband and two very beautiful children, and I still felt like something was missing."

I Regret My Silence
Kathy
MO, United States
"I've often regretted my silent cowardice, for it seemed to me that she was really looking for someone, anyone, to tell her that it was okay to have the baby despite the mixed-up circumstances. Without that support she went ahead with it."
Testimony Type - Relative or Friend Had an Abortion

The Support She Really Needed
Sue
OK, United States
"I really didn’t have a clue.  This was back in the 70’s when abortion wasn’t as widely publicized as it is today.  Back then we were still being told that it wasn’t a real baby, just a clump of cells. No one came to me and told me I was ending the life of a human being.  No one."

Letting Go of the Anger
Cheryl
NY, United States

A Better Choice
Laura
UT, United States
"I cannot change what happened but I can share about it and speak out, in the hopes that perhaps one woman out there will make a different, wiser, better choice--a life-giving rather than a life-taking choice. I pray that that will be the case!"

Paralyzing
Christina
OR, United States
"As time went on I still didn't realize the impact this loss had on me. I struggled with promiscuity, relationships, and most of all a deep feeling of shame and unlovableness at my core...This sense that, at any moment, I would be punished was pervasive through my life. Especially after I had children, my fear that they would be harmed or taken from me was paralyzing. I believed I didn't deserve anything good. "

Forgiving Myself Daily
Michelle
AZ, United States
"After 27 years of living with the pain and regret that my abortion has caused, I am ready to receive God's forgiveness and forgive myself.  I finally feel free from the shame and regret, and that's why I am silent no more!"

Precious Joy
Teresa
OH, United States
"It wasn’t a blob of tissue! They lied! I was in anguish.  I could hardly breathe.  I put my face in my hands as my tears turned to sobs.  How could I have done such a horrible thing?  I felt physically sick.  How could God let me live after I had committed such a merciless act?"

A Letter To Somone Thinking About Abortion
Samantha
ON, Canada

No One Told Me I Would Regret
Lindy
NSW, Australia
"I will make the most of raising his brothers and sisters and pray the world is awakened to the devastation abortion actually causes. It is despicable. I just hope and pray women and men rise to say, 'You’ll regret this if you go ahead'. And I pray for healing for those who have been falsely led to believe abortion is nothing but taking away ‘cells’"

The Rest of Your Life
Mary
NJ, United States

Empty and Alone

Carrying the Message to Those Who Still Suffer
Sarah
IN, United States
"At the same time, I was still of the mindset that abortion wasn't a big deal "because it wasn't really a person yet". I learned immediately after I had the abortion how wrong I was about that. The pro-life people were right, abortion doesn't solve any of your problems; it just makes you the mother of a dead baby. And one that you don't get to memorialize, bury, or properly grieve over."

What Was Missing
Deborah
SC, United States

I Will Speak Out
Angelina
ON, Canada
"I could not find my way back to the girl I was before. I chose self hatred and denial as the way forward. I masked the pain of my child’s death through drugs and promiscuity.  
I shut down my maternal instincts, rejected my ability to nurture life, to give birth.  I became an advocate for abortion. I plummeted into depression and thought about suicide."  Angelina's testimony from the 2018 March for Life Ottawa

I Have Found Foy
Julia
ON, Canada
"For the next 12 years I went from therapy to therapy, but these did not help.  My marriage failed—my “happy ever after” life was not to be!  Why couldn't the deterioration of my life be fixed?  Why couldn’t we get to the root cause?"  Julia's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

Drowning
Frances
QC, Canada
"My heart cried out from my new self-inflicted prison of death, 'You can't undo this.  This is not something you can make up for!'  I was drowning in despair. I remember feeling very weak, small, and sad.  Afterwards, I remember the horrible cramps. I felt so hollow and dead. I could find no peace and no sleep."  Frances's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

Sacrifice
David
ON, Canada
"What I didn't understand was this: At the moment of conception, I was not a 'potential father'. I truly was a father. I selfishly pursued my career instead of my responsibility."  David's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

Consequences
Elaine
SK, Canada
"She said, 'Have an abortion; it's easy.'   Then she said, 'It's not really a baby; more like a little sprouted wheat seed at this stage.'  What I really needed to know were the true facts of fetal development, and that free love was not freeing or loving.  It was only sex, and it comes with responsibility!  All choices have consequences."  Elaine's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa
