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

Never Abandoned
Sheri
OH, United States
"Hurting and still scared, I felt very abandoned and alone because I had no one to talk to about the experience.  Those I tried to talk to just laughed at me and pretended like it didn’t happen...Years went by living in denial and suppression, and depression and bi-polar conditions took control of my life."

Not the Answer
Kathleen
VA, United States
"The older I became, the more I began to notice that being around pregnant women made me angry, yet I never understood why!  The sight of a child running and playing on the beach would make me feel empty inside. My heart had a hole the size of the Grand Canyon in it from the effects of those abortions, yet I could not connect the dots."

The Worst Mistake
Solome

If I Could Redo Everything

The War on Women
Janet
CA, United States

The First Step
Melissa
MD, United States

Feeling Whole
Tammi
PA, United States
"Regardless of my outward appearance, I'd personally given up the hope of ever feeling whole. I constantly battled rage and self-loathing.  I'd suppressed the memories of my abortion so deep, yet the reality of them was evident in how I lived my self-destructive life."

I Cannot Keep My Story to Myself
Thereasa

"I have been feeling more and more that I cannot keep my story to myself.  God has been calling me to use my pain and experience to help those who are struggling with making the same choice I did.  If I can help persuade other women and men to make better choices,  then I can be silent no more."

Never Escape the Pain

Pardoned
Charlotte
CA, United States
"I am a wife, a mother, and a grandmother. My appearance of normalcy deceptively masks the reality of my abortion experience. There is nothing normal about aborting one’s child...I am writing my true story to warn others who may be considering abortion to carefully consider not making the same fatal choice that I made over four decades ago."

J’ai ressenti une immense et profonde tristesse
Christine
France, France
"J’ai décidé de rompre le silence parce que tout ce qu’on raconte sur l’avortement est mensonge: non ça n’aide pas les femmes, non, ce n’est jamais un solution, oui, c’est terrible ! Ca détruit un enfant et ses parents avec, en profondeur, et pour longtemps."

Je ne pouvais pas en parler
Christian
France, France

Le temps passe, pas la souffrance
Emeline
ALR, France
Rompre le silence, pour moi c’est l’espoir de faire que d’autres le rompent aussi, de faire que d’autres femmes, hommes et enfants survivants n’aient pas à souffrir, de mettre fin à la répétition de la violence, à l’aveuglement ou au mensonge.
