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

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."

To My Dear Children in Heaven
Penny
WA, United States
"I have told many people about what I have done.  Sure, I am ashamed of what I have done. But hopefully, by telling others, I can change someone’s mind about making a decision you can never ever take back."

Through Grace and Mercy
Dora
TX, United States
"I share this because abortion is so evil in its core. What it does to the innocent and what it does to women is very real. Many women are left completely alone in their brokenness to figure it all out after an abortion. That is a sad truth, and that was my truth."

Compelled to Share
Cheryl
PA, United States
"I am compelled to share my story, because I want young women and girls considering abortion to know that, if they choose abortion, they probably won't ever really get over it."

One Day
Aaryn
OH, United States
"I went alone and remember the facility being very dreary.  The staff was cold and distant. I wasn't properly counseled or screened concerning my mental health and, standing here today, that's not a decision I would make again."

I Remember Everything
Erin
MS, United States
"I still have nightmares about that day. I can still remember every second of the six hours I spent there—down to the stories the women told me, the doctor occupied with the basketball game, how alone I felt, even though we did everything but the actual abortion in groups. I remember everything."

A Deep Wound
Jan
MI, United States
"I could not look at pro-life signs, listen to news reports on abortion—for or against—or anything that reminded me of this past event.  There was a deep wound that remained raw. I had failed God, myself, and my child."

Now I Share the Truth
Ann
FL, United States
"But as time went on after the abortion, I placed a wall up around me and deadened my feelings.  I felt remorse, shame, and unworthiness.  It was difficult to form friendships.  I was promiscuous after the marriage to the father of my baby ended.  I had low self-esteem.  I had anger issues and did not know where the anger came from."

Obadiah
Theresa
IA, United States
"I continued to struggle year after year on the anniversary date of the abortion. I would go into this dark hole of self-hatred and despair. I would become suicidal during this time. I tried getting help through secular counseling, but it didn't help. Our son would come to me and ask and my husband and I if he could have a brother. We would tell him no.  And he didn't know that he already had a brother, in Heaven."

The Deep Abyss
Cheryl
PA, United States
"The abortions were supposed to fix my problems and allow me to move on with my life.  Instead, they pulled me into a deep abyss that held me captive for over 30 years."

Hard to Forgive
Barbara
WA, United States
"I realized through the counsel of others that the blame was not 100% on me; it was a joint decision. I pretty much had carried the entire blame for all 26 years, because it was my idea in the first place. I wonder, to this day, if he had had the courage to go to my parents with me and talk about it, if we would have saved our baby."

I Thought I Was Being Strong
Robyn
WA, United States
"I would love to encourage young men and woman to wait until marriage to have sexual relations, to repent if they have already sinned or, if it is too late for both, to assure anyone considering abortion that ALL other options are far better—because nobody should have to die."

Grateful
Larry
NY, United States
"My heart still aches, and it is very overwhelming to relive this day by speaking to you right now. But I feel that my testimony might help others or save a life. Today I’d like to tell you about the day I lost my child to abortion."

To Feel Alone
Angela
NC, United States
"I remember sitting in a room with a bunch of girls. They were laughing like it was a joke.  My heart was breaking.  I thought, 'You all are terrible women!'  But I was in the room being one of those terrible women!"

Child of God
Shantel
MO, United States
"I see my first child, and I ask myself so often, 'What if I would have aborted him?' It is a terrifying feeling. I would die defending my son. Why did I not defend my 2nd child's life? Living a life of regret—of the would haves, could haves, should haves—is much worse than actually living with challenges."

Hearts Can Change
Jane
FL, United States
"I learned God’s mercy was bigger than my sins. After a couple of retreats and growing closer in my relationship with Jesus, I began healing.  I no longer carried the heavy burden."

Her Sisters and Brother
Liz and Grace
GA, United States
"I knew at some point I was going to have to tell Grace the truth about her siblings lost to abortion, but I didn’t know when.  I prayed for the Holy Spirit to begin preparing both of us and to let me know when the right time would be for Grace to hear the painful, shocking truth—that she had two sisters and one brother in Heaven."

What If
Tracey

Forever Changed My Life
Dineen
NY, United States
"I can say I have had a lot of pain after this. I wish someone would have told me how I would feel after the abortion, because I would have never done it."

Hole in my Heart
Tamra
FL, United States
"I realized abortion not only took my child’s life; it also created this hole in my heart that will never fully heal...I now realize that abortion is not the answer; it is the problem, and we must not let another child, woman, or man suffer the way that I and many others have for so many years."

Dealing With It
Maria
MD, United States
"As time went on after the abortion I tried to get pregnant for a very long time and failed. I fell deeper into a hole of shame, anger, and confusion."

Unplanned
Julianne
TN, United States
"If you are a woman reading this, and you are currently experiencing an unplanned pregnancy, it is my hope that you find help and resources without judgment and without fear.  It is my hope that you will embrace the unplanned and let it re-shape your future.  You can start over.  You can survive.  You can even thrive.  Unplanned for you does not equal unplanned to God."
