As they have every January since 2003, the women and men of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign will gather in front of the U.S. Supreme Court at the conclusion of the March for Life on Friday, Jan. 20, to share their testimonies of how abortion wounded them.
Every year the Silent No More gathering concludes the nation’s biggest pro-life event by sharing stories of children lost to abortion, the consequences that followed for their parents, grandparents and others, and the healing that ultimately helped those who chose abortion to move forward.
Silent No More was founded by Priests for Life Executive Director Janet Morana and Anglicans for Life President Georgette Forney late in 2002 to harness the power of these stories in the hope of reaching women before they have abortions, and to extend a hand to those still suffering the devastating aftermath of abortion.
The stories are no less powerful now that Roe v. Wade has been overturned. In fact, that Supreme Court decision has triggered unexpected painful memories for mothers and fathers who chose abortion.
The testimonies will begin at approximately 2:30 p.m. and continue for several hours. They will be added to the many others that can be found at www.AbortionTestimonies.com.
