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

God Redeems All Things
Nichole
NC, United States
"I remember waking up feeling devastated, hoping it was a terrible nightmare, but also confused, empty, lost, broken, and shocked. I felt as though a piece of me was left at that cold, dead, hopeless place when I walked out that evening."

My Plans
Yany
FL, United States
"Having gotten that abortion was the single most selfish act that I have ever committed.  I thank God that He has forgiven me. I hope that I can help women understand that a child's life is worth having to change one's plans."

Forgiving the Unforgivable
Joi
NC, United States
"I received no empathy or comfort. No hug, no nothing!  I was confused, angry, and lonely.  I felt low-down, and I couldn’t tell anyone.  I asked God to forgive me, but I couldn’t forgive myself because, to me, it was unforgivable."

Using My Story
Lisa
TX, United States
"I know God has forgiven me, but I have never forgiven myself. How could I have done that?  Knowing how and what they did to my baby... what I did to my baby. "

Pray for Me
Kelly
OH, United States
"I'm still healing, and I think it’s because it's hard to tell people that I had an abortion.  I feel the baby was a girl."

God's Purpose
Serena
IN, United States
"People often say that a victim of rape wouldn’t want anything to do with a resulting child, that the baby would be a horrible reminder of what happened. For me, the abortion is my reminder of what could have been, a reminder that God had a purpose for my daughter."

God Can Use You
Mara
IN, United States
"I am loved and forgiven. I am worthy to be a wife and a mother someday, and I pray that God brings that favor upon me. I am redeemed. I am beautifully broken. I’m using my story to reach those who have sailed the same ship and prevent others from boarding it."

Freedom is Awesome
Cheryl
VA, United States
I have been on both side of the debate--adamantly pro-choice (volunteering, marching) and now boldly pro-life (speaking, publishing, teaching, marching). God has been so kind to heal me completely, and I feel joy and all the other emotions more than ever before—freedom is awesome!  And that's why I'm silent no more.

Hostage
Regina
MT, United States
"It wasn't until 2013, when I went to a Rachel's Vineyard retreat, that I had a major breakthrough.  That is where I learned that God had completely forgiven me, and I chose to forgive myself. I had held myself hostage for over 30 years because of that horrible decision I made at 17."

Forever Changed
Emily
CO, United States
"Once I was in the actual room, they gave me the opportunity to do an ultrasound. I declined, because I was afraid I wouldn't go through with it if I saw my baby. I regret that decision. I should have said yes."

Finding Forgiveness
Susan
MO, United States
"I regret my abortion and wish I could go back and change the choices I made.  But through God’s leading, I hope to find other women who are suffering from the guilt and shame of abortion and show them the path to forgiveness."

Empty of Life
Robin
NC, United States
"There are some things in life that take your breath, some that take your words, some that take your will to live, and some that take your soul.  On this occasion all of those feelings collided.   What the abortion industry will never tell you is that you will forever be changed after having an abortion.  You will leave the clinic empty of life, both the baby’s life and your own."

The Loneliness
Linda
VA, United States
"Today, almost 26 years later, I still have so many relationship issues. But the worst is the loneliness and the loss of not having children in my life. All of my brothers and sisters have children, except me."

Healing the Broken-Hearted
Jamie
FL, United States
"Laying on the table, I turned my face towards the wall, and I prayed silently. I said to God, 'God, this is not what I want. I'm sorry.' It was finished...From that day, I was never the same again."

The Day My Mum Could be Silent No More
Mike
England, United Kingdom
"Since the funeral I have felt free to talk openly about being a second generation abortion survivor, but I didn’t make a big thing of it—not until I realised that there were other abortion survivors around the world."

Regaining My Voice
Marcia
IL, United States
"There was no compassion, no understanding, and he was clearly not going to stop before it was too late for my baby. I regretted my abortion decision even before the vacuum suction procedure began."

Moving Forward
Tracy
OH, United States
"I contemplated suicide off and on.  I was promiscuous and non-committal.  I ran away emotionally from everything and was pretty afraid of everything and everyone.  At one point I moved to Arizona in order to find a miracle to fix me. Problem was I had left everything and everyone I knew, and all I had left was me. And I hated me."

Immense Gratitude
Barbara
NY, United States
"My boyfriend and I were on the phone, and he was crying as well.  But neither of us could understand why we were crying - it didn't make sense.  Everyone at the clinic encouraged us and told us this was the best decision.  We never thought we were doing anything wrong.  And that's the deception."

Found My Way
Susan
MO, United States
"I was brought up in the Church, so I believed in God, but I felt so guilty, ashamed, and unworthy that I could not bring myself to even enter the Lord's house. I struggled silently for years, feeling unworthy and disgusted with myself. "

I Wish
Crys
GA, United States
"There were recovery chairs in the surgery room, but they were facing away from where the procedures being done. I felt like it was an assembly line of abortions. The doctor had to have done at least 50 that day, if not more."

I Want to Be a Light
Courtney
NC, United States
"Shame, guilt, fear, and now hatred and sadness overtook me. Shame in myself and the shame I would feel if my parents found out about the abortion. Guilt for what I was now fully aware that I had done. Hatred of what I had become after making this most selfish decision.   The depression was intense, and I just pushed through each day feeling sad and having no one to blame but myself."

Not A Day Goes By
Emily
MN, United States
"Not a day goes by where I don’t come to tears due to the horrible mistake I’ve made.  It has been the biggest regret of my life. The guilt continues to haunt me daily. The only choice I have is to give back and help save others from making the same horrible mistake."

I Cannot Stay Silent
Anne
NJ, United States
"I confessed the sin, experienced God’s forgiveness, and put it out of my mind.  But I still did not want to get close to anyone. When I did not drink, I was an emotional overeater and felt strangely disconnected to infants and very small children."
