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

Forever Torn Apart
Karen
OH, United States
"At that point I didn’t think I could be any worse of a person than I already was. So I had my second abortion. This time I let them put me to sleep. I didn’t care if I woke up."
Leading Others
Jeanne
NC, United States
"I immediately felt the weight of what I had done.  That shame and guilt lead me down a long path of self-destructive behavior that followed me for 30 years! "
Dirty Little Secret
Jennifer
OH, United States
"It would forever be our 'dirty little secret'.  Once I had the abortion, we never spoke of it again."
I Wanted My Baby Back
Valerie
ON, Canada
"They told me that I was going to have the abortion. I didn’t know how to stand up to them or get away from them. I didn’t know where to go and how to support myself and a child."
I Was Frightened
Shelley
CA, United States
"I have regretted this now for 25 years. The pain is awful, and I sometimes feel like I can’t cope with the pain and the guilt."
My Poor Baby
Melanie
CA, United States
"My baby. My poor baby. I’m so sorry. So, so sorry."
Depression
Nora
PA, United States
"After years of pain, I went through a healing program and was able to receive God’s forgiveness and forgive myself.  I finally feel free from the shame, and that is why I am silent no more!"
"Before I found healing there were very few nights that it didn't haunt me and very few days that I didn't have an unhealthy fear that something would happen to my only living child. There were few seasons that I didn't punish myself in some unhealthy or destructive way, but I didn't understand why that was, at least not until I found the road to freedom."
Restored
Katie
CO, United States
"The Planned Parenthood was cold.  Women were crying, and no one seemed to care. The doctor did not help me, and I felt uninformed by the people in clinic. I felt alone and humiliated, and they wouldn't let me see the ultrasound."
From Darkness to Healing
Teresa
IA, United States
"And that’s why am I talking about this, because people who have had abortions must heal, because when they are healed, they will tell the truth about abortion, and babies’ lives will be saved."
I Thought I Couldn't be Forgiven
Gabrielle
MI, United States
"The abortion experience was so dehumanizing, humiliating, and traumatic. The clinic and doctor treated me the worst.  As I cried and screamed during the procedure, they told me, 'Be quiet, we don’t want you to scare other patients.'  It was the most disturbing experience of my life."
Loving Myself
Martha
Kenya, Kenya
"There is no such thing as a safe abortion because a child dies. We think abortion is the solution to the problem, but it is actually the beginning. I have talked to older women who have said, 'I had an abortion, now I am married. I have children, but I am still not fine'."
Seeking Him for Strength
Nicole
VA, United States
"The clinic was cold and heartless. The employees and staff just wanted my insurance money and, as far as I can remember, provided no support. After the abortion I continued on a downward spiral of alcoholism and other sinful ways."
David no calla mas
David
TX, United States
"Todo lo que quería hacer era escapar y alejarme de ella y de toda la situación. Me sentí temeroso pero liberado; me di cuenta de lo bajo que podía llegar. Caí en una depresión aguda, alcoholismo, e incrementé mi consumo de drogas."
Set Free
Melissa
NC, United States
"At the time I thought that telling my parents I was pregnant would be the hardest thing I would ever do, but I was wrong. The hardest thing I would ever do is to live without my son or daughter every day of my life, because I had an abortion.  The physical and emotional pain was more than I could bear. "
Long-Term Consequences
Fern
ON, Canada
"Initially, I felt relieved that my 'problem' was 'solved,' but the relief was replaced with shame, guilt, regret, and anguish.  I became promiscuous, drowned my sorrow in alcohol, lived a life in denial of my past, and avoided thinking about anything to do with my abortions."
Changing My Life
Yesenia
NM, United States
"Now I wanted a baby more than ever and, to make matters worse, I lost custody of my 3-year-old son. I completely lost myself in the world.  I felt disgusted and so ashamed and no one knew. I planned to take my own life so many times but never had success.  All I wanted was to die."
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.
