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

Women and Children Deserve Better
Cynthia
OH, United States
"I remember her saying that she wanted to work to reduce the number of abortions because young women deserved better.  I didn't know what she meant then but I do now.  I deserved better and my unborn children did, too."

Her Brother in Heaven
Melinda
AZ, United States
"I am have a beautiful daughter who loves the Lord. I knew I would someday have to tell her about my son, and the opportunity arose not long ago when she said to me, ‘Mom, I was the first baby inside you, right?’ Not wanting to lie to her I said nothing. I finally told her last week that she has a brother in heaven."

No Empathy
Kiyanah
CA, United States
"I felt so humiliated in the ultrasound and recovery room. I remember being so afraid and hurt. In turning over after the procedure was done, the nurse said to me, “It's time to get up; you'll have time to grieve in the recovery room". I felt so rejected, and there was no empathy for my hurting soul."

For Those With No Voice
Sandi
NY, United States
"Every sonogram brought mixed feelings. I was so happy and excited, yet now I saw at 12 weeks that this was no cluster of cells. This was a baby. Every gestational milestone I considered my lost baby, the baby I selfishly killed in what should have been its sanctuary, the sanctuary of the womb."

I Am Not the Same
Zynette
CA, United States
"Some people say that abortion is just a procedure, that abortion is just a mass of tissue that you do not want, and that abortion makes everything better.  But I will tell you that this is not true. I lost my baby, I lost my boyfriend, and I lost myself."

I Know I Will See You Again
Savannah
WY, United States
"That was about the time I experienced extreme anger, at everyone, all the time.  I was depressed--cutting and anorexia were how I dealt with that.  I drank, smoked pot often, listened to songs that reminded me to hate.  I was a mess.  I did not care if I lived or died.  My heart was numb.  This lasted for YEARS!"

Peace in my Life
Christine
OH, United States
"I wish that healing had begun earlier in my life. I wasted years in pain, shame, and lost opportunities to help others. I only pray that my story can help bring someone else to the grace of forgiveness and redemption that I finally found. I still have regrets, but there is a peace in my life now that never fully existed before."

Rewriting The Story
Amy
CO, United States
"After so, so, so many years of being lost in pain, guilt, and shame, I have finally found God's forgiveness and healing which has allowed me to forgive myself. Because I am truly forgiven and set free, I am silent no more! I look forward to God using my story to help other men and women who are suffering from their abortion experiences."

Reaching out to Women like Me
Susan
KY, United States
"This is what haunts me the most about this abortion. Because this time, it was MY idea. MY sin, MY mistakes that lead me into this jumbled mess, the death of my own children. By my own hand.  I distanced myself even more from God because I didn’t want him to even LOOK upon me. I was a wreck. What a mess I had made."

An Advocate for Life
Jen
IL, United States

How Can I Help?
Alec
CA, United States

Never Make Right
Leslie
VA, United States
"The years have a way of catching up to you, and abortion is one of the few wrongs you can never make right. Your baby is gone forever. You'll never hear that first cry. You'll never feel that child's arms around your neck. You'll never hear, "I love you, Mommy." Choose life. You'll never regret it."

Living in Shackles
Cicely
IN, United States
"I put it out of my mind and threw myself in to work. My addiction was my job, keeping busy was a must. Guilt would surround me daily. A hurried failed marriage, an eating disorder, GUILT again. The feeling of not being worthy, of being scared to hold a baby.  Distancing myself from all types of relationships."

Giving Others a Safe Place

The Burden of Shame
Dena
IL, United States
"After the abortion I made my way across the street to where my boyfriend was waiting in the car, sleeping. I looked at him lying there, and I hated him in that moment. But not as much as I hated myself. That self-loathing would shape the next few decades and decisions of my life."

Please Think Twice
Elise
OR, United States
"Did the baby feel pain? Was the baby a boy or girl? Did the baby know what was going on? Where is my baby now? This is what haunts me the most. Was it just medical waste?
I cry most when I take a shower, not sure why. A year later and I still cry."
