"I will regret my abortion till the day I go to heaven and see Anthony, but God has given me peace in the midst of sorrow. What an honor it was when the Lord used me to lead a young gal, who was seeking an abortion, to Jesus. She changed her mind and had her son!"
"The feeling of worthlessness after each one increased. I turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with the feelings of being a murderer. Every anniversary I mourn the loss of my children who should have been."
"The truth was that I felt horrible afterwards. I couldn’t stop the regret and remorse, the pain that I felt. It is a pain that won’t go away. It feels like a lifetime of hurt, and I don’t want to have anyone go through that."
"Abortion is taking an innocent life. Abortion is absolutely wrong, no matter the circumstances. If you have an abortion you will regret it. That regret never leaves. In fact, I feel regretful almost every day when I look at my children and wonder what their sibling would have been like."
"And no one knew of my abortions. Not my mom. Not my sister. Not my husbands. And the friend who accompanied me that first time drifted away. Close relationships were lost to me."
"God has a mission for me now, to help other women find healing and forgiveness, to let them know there is a path out of the darkness, to be a voice for the voiceless, and to be the voice of truth in a world full of lies about the harm the abortion industry does to women."

"I know God has forgiven me for taking my little girl’s life, but I also know I will never completely forgive myself.

Mother Tabitha's Walk for Life Testimony

"That day my denial broke. I learned that God wanted to forgive me but, I could not forgive myself. As a believer walking up to the reality that I killed my child was overwhelming. Thankfully, we serve a faithful God who is determined to chase after us." Maryls's 2020 March for Life Testimony
"I was 23 years old and 24 weeks pregnant when I walked into a cold, sterile clinic and had a saline abortion.

Myra's 2020 March for Life Testimony

"I was no longer pregnant, and I became an angry, militant advocate for abortion. But over a year later, the guilt and horror over what I had done, and resulting the depression, drug abuse, and self-loathing, started consuming my life. I became driven by those emotions, and they motivated many of my life choices." Lynne's 2020 March for Life Testimony
"Immediately after I felt completely empty and was overwhelmed with shame and regret. A few months later my boyfriend was gone, and there I was, no baby and all alone.

"I am a 66-year-old woman that has carried a heavy secret for 50 years." Jackie's 2020 March for Life Testimony
"After the abortion, I spun out of control. I started to drink more and was very confused about my relationships. Somehow, my boyfriend and I stayed together and ended up getting married. Now 35 years later- I see how deeply the abortion impacted our marriage and our parenting. I don't think we knew what normal was." Lisa's 2020 March for Life Testimony
