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

A Letter To Somone Thinking About Abortion
Samantha
ON, Canada
"Abortion wasn’t something I wanted, and unfortunately I have this story that I never wanted to have to tell. No one told me of the emotional consequences and trauma that would arise from this. I miss my baby every day."

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
Courtney

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 spent years after my abortion self-medicating, and I worked with several psychiatrists.  Despite that work, I never healed.  Something was always missing."

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

Through Chris's Love
Clinton
ON, Canada
"My girlfriend and I became estranged after the abortion.  Something that had been living in our relationship -- faith in each other or hope for our future -- was gone.  Our relationship ended a couple of years later.  Many years after that, the reality of my fatherhood hit me and wouldn't go away."  Clinton's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

Set Free
Melody
SK, Canada
"I never talked about my abortions to anyone, including doctors. But I needed to feel whole and to fill that void of shame and grief. Through years of searching, I found God who would forgive all I had done and help restore my character. He set me free and healed my pain."  Melody's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

See Through God's Eyes
Malinda
ON, Canada
"For years I would catch myself wondering what my children would be like had I decided to let them live.  Yes, that’s right; let them live.  Had I done nothing, they would have been born as human beings.   They were not lumps of flesh as I was led to believe.  I was never able to get pregnant again."  Malinda's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

In Sorrow Alone
Audrey
ON, Canada
"A woman who has an abortion will never stop wondering what her life would be like if the child was alive and who that child would grow up to be.  My child would be 40 years old. People mourned with me when I miscarried my twins, but my sorrow for my aborted child I had to bear alone."  Audrey's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

Still Deeply Regret

You Can Do This
Emma
England, United Kingdom
"I had told one friend who also agreed it was a good idea. I had no one to tell me I could do it. No one to tell me abortion was wrong, no one to tell me to sit down and make a different plan than what I had already envisioned for myself. And so I ended up being a sheep to society and walking down the dark path disguised as 'liberation' and 'acceptance'."

Determined to Survive
Erica
HI, United States
"After the abortion, I felt humiliated.  I felt isolated and alone. Co-workers called to check on me after the procedure, but I had to lie about what it was for to protect my job. I was tired of lying and stopped taking their calls. I cried alone in my bed for days. Eventually, I had to go back to work and tried to pretend things were okay, but they weren't."

No More Silence
Mindy
TN, United States
"Today, I desire all men and women who struggle with an abortion wound to know forgiveness, healing, and wholeness are for them. Silence is Satan’s tactic for keeping God’s people from being effective warriors, and I will be SILENT NO MORE!"

Able to Receive Forgiveness
Mandy
TX, United States
"As time went on after the abortion, I felt and experienced pain and sadness.  I never told anyone except for my husband and sister.  After years of pain, I went through a healing program and was able to receive God's forgiveness and forgive myself.  I am working on feeling free from the shame and that's why I am silent no more!"

That Heavy, Heavy Burden
Karen
NY, United States
"It is God who loves us unconditionally, and He forgives me!  He has set my heart free from that heavy, heavy burden I carried around with me for so many years! I want to let others know how debilitating it is to keep a secret hidden but to also let women and men know what abortion actually does to our souls."
