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 Again Take a Life
Gwen
Kenya, Kenya

Mary Beth

Because of God's Forgiveness

I Have Been Made New
Mandy
OH, United States

I Will Always Be There
Monique
GA, United States
"I refused to look at the ultrasound.  I was so afraid of what I would see, the mess I had created...When I came to, it was awful. All I could see was psychedelic patterns of yellow, black, and white circling in a dizzying fast paced manner.  When I was left in my apartment that night, I was absolutely sick."

A Love Lost
Aimee
BC, Canada
"The biggest impact abortion has had on me is that every time I look at my children I have now, I think about that little face I never saw and the child I have never known.  I think about how my oldest son that I have now is not really my oldest, that he is my second child. Those little things are constant reminders of a love lost."

Dearest Zackary
Paul
CA, United States
"This year would have been your 25th birthday. I apologize and ask for your forgiveness for the “would have been” in that statement. I know you have forgiven me, and I know you are in the presence of Jesus, who has also forgiven me.  I ask for strength from Jesus to find a way to forgive myself."
