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

For the Brother and Sister I Lost
Nick
ND, United States
"Attending that mass with my family and surrounded by other women who had abortions and truly regretted it has given me an even better reason to believe what I do about abortion.

We Lied to Them
Catherine
MA, United States
"I told women that their baby was a clump of tissue. I never asked them if they wanted any other choice, if they wanted to be a parent, if they wanted to put their baby up for adoption. We took their money. We lied to them. We put them on a table and gave them an abortion without ever telling them the truth about the procedure. We never told them about the pain."  Catherine's testimony from the March for Life 2015

Using Tragedy

Hurting Myself and Others

Generations Lost
Irene
CA, United States

His Purpose
Vicki
CA, United States
"Finally, I began to see how the abortions had affected me. I let myself feel the incredible grief I had for the babies who I had aborted.
