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

Mix of Emotions of Pity and Judgement
Melissa
IL, United States
During the abortions I had a mix of emotions of pity for the other women and girls who were there and at the same time judgement. I wonder if any of them felt the same way towards me.
Scared and Feeling too Old to be a Mother
Kimberly
AZ, United States
I proceeded to get my pills and prescriptions and went home to “do the deed” I cried so much I felt so bad inside and couldn’t explain why. I took the pills anyway. Scared and feeling “too old to be a mother to yet another kid” I cried myself to sleep for days. 

Hid my True Feelings and Cried in Private
Jessica
MO, United States
I cried in private. Everyone acted like abortion was normal, so I hid my true feelings. I rubbed my womb and talked to the little thing growing in me and apologized countless times beforehand. 
I remember trying to get off the table, and being held down, I was saying how badly it hurts, and crying out several time and them telling me to be quiet.. Afterwards I was completely empty, void of feeling or emotion... not numb, void. I left my boyfriend shortly after.
I felt numb, I had to go to the abortion clinic by myself and I will never forget how scared I was and the pain I felt that day. 
The experience is difficult to describe, it causes me anxiety and sadness 45 years later. The experience to this day causes me sadness, crying, and depression and rumination. Sometimes I have to leave a room when a speaker talks about abortion. 
Hope and healing from my 2 abortions took several years. The silence and putting it out of my mind swept up in waves of emotions I didn't understand. I'm so thankful that the truth is being brought into the light. I know that I know, I will see my children in Heaven! That God loves me, and that I am forgiven!

I was numb throughout the experience and the sequel continued.  Casually dating, having unprotected sex, and getting pregnant and having an abortion.  All my friends where doing it, and I didn’t think it was a problem.  

I have known for a long time that God has forgiven me, but now I know my children have, too, which has allowed me to forgive myself. 

It was a Horrible Experience
Carrol
GA, United States
I never wanted an abortion, I was awake when they did it, it was a horrible experience. I could feel them pulling my baby out of my body. I cried the whole way home. I was extremely depressed afterwards. 
I had my abortion because I was forced to by my mother. I tried to get help, but nobody would listen that she was going to make me kill my very wanted baby. I was 15 and I was pro-life, all my life. 
I have asked for forgiveness.  I have received forgiveness.  The empty hole has been filled with love.  Jesus died on the cross so our sins would be forgiven.  Jesus died on the cross so I would be forgiven, they were babies, they did have a soul, they were formed, they were life.
