I attended a Racheal's Vineyard Retreat where I was able to connect with my daughter and know that she has forgiven me. My journey to healing is nowhere near over. Every day is a new battle with different triggers and heartaches.
Jesus stepped in. A woman in my church was involved in an abortion healing program and encouraged me to take the class. With a lot of praying and repenting I was finally able to come to terms with what I had done and find forgiveness for myself and for the father.
During my first pregnancy, I went to the medical clinic on base. I found out that I was pregnant from a pregnancy test. Afterward, the OB doctor handed me a list of abortion doctors to contact for an abortion, and I was not given another choice from the military OB doctor.
What I have learned in all of this is that, no matter your "beliefs" when tested, we are human. Some of us are stronger than others and some of us are not. Abortion is not the road to go in any scenario, no matter how ugly. There are always post birth options! God can take the most harrowing of situations and make them beautiful. You need to have faith.
The abortion itself didn’t hurt me physically, but emotionally it was the greatest pain I’ve ever felt … I regretted my decision the second I took the first pill but it was too late.
Today, my daughter has gained the courage to speak the truth about her late -term abortion. And I am proud to stand by her side because women deserve better. That is why I am silent. No more. Cecilia's testimony from the 2022 Walk for Life in San Francisco, CA.
God used a Deeper Still Retreat to bring me into the understanding that I can be forgiven, and that Jesus paid the debt for what I did. I no longer had to punish myself, Jesus took my punishment. Abortion hurts women, it is not a quick fix and that is why I am SILENT NO MORE. Brigette's testimony from the 2022 Walk for Life in San Francisco, CA.
It is unbearable. I stopped countless generations from ever existing, but I stand before you today through the grace of God, because he has healed me. And that is why I am silent. No more. Irene's testimony from the 2022 Walk for Life in San Francisco, CA.
The pain is real, but the healing is profound. Dear Military members and veterans, healing is available. Get the help you need. You are why I will be Silent no More. Jody's testimony from the 2022 March for Life in Washington DC.
The law in NY State at the time of my abortion was a precursor to Roe V Wade. Whenever I hear the number of abortions since Roe v Wade I want to scream, “THERE WERE MORE!” My child, my child.. That is why I will be SILENT NO MORE. Louise's testimony from the 2022 March for Life in Washington, DC.
Gracias a la sanidad plena que Dios me regaló a través de su palabra hoy puedo testificar por mis hijos en el cielo, por mis hijos terrenales, por mi esposo y por mí que por la gracia de Dios, ya no voy a callar más que “Yo soy perdonada y libre”. Sarian's testimony from the 2022 March for Life in Washington, DC.
El aborto NO es una solución, el aborto es un problema que trae consecuencias lastimosas. No More Silence. Francesnerys testimony from the 2022 March for Life in Washington, DC.
