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

Testimonies Women Who Regret Their Abortions

Finding Forgiveness
Susan
MO, United States
"I regret my abortion and wish I could go back and change the choices I made.  But through God’s leading, I hope to find other women who are suffering from the guilt and shame of abortion and show them the path to forgiveness."

Empty of Life
Robin
NC, United States
"There are some things in life that take your breath, some that take your words, some that take your will to live, and some that take your soul.  On this occasion all of those feelings collided.   What the abortion industry will never tell you is that you will forever be changed after having an abortion.  You will leave the clinic empty of life, both the baby’s life and your own."

The Loneliness
Linda
VA, United States
"Today, almost 26 years later, I still have so many relationship issues. But the worst is the loneliness and the loss of not having children in my life. All of my brothers and sisters have children, except me."

Healing the Broken-Hearted
Jamie
FL, United States
"Laying on the table, I turned my face towards the wall, and I prayed silently. I said to God, 'God, this is not what I want. I'm sorry.' It was finished...From that day, I was never the same again."

Regaining My Voice
Marcia
IL, United States

Moving Forward
Tracy
OH, United States
"I contemplated suicide off and on.  I was promiscuous and non-committal.  I ran away emotionally from everything and was pretty afraid of everything and everyone.  At one point I moved to Arizona in order to find a miracle to fix me. Problem was I had left everything and everyone I knew, and all I had left was me. And I hated me."

Immense Gratitude
Barbara
NY, United States
"My boyfriend and I were on the phone, and he was crying as well.  But neither of us could understand why we were crying - it didn't make sense.  Everyone at the clinic encouraged us and told us this was the best decision.  We never thought we were doing anything wrong.  And that's the deception."

Found My Way
Susan
MO, United States
"I was brought up in the Church, so I believed in God, but I felt so guilty, ashamed, and unworthy that I could not bring myself to even enter the Lord's house. I struggled silently for years, feeling unworthy and disgusted with myself. "

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

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

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."
