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 Fathers of Aborted Children

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."

Forbidden Grief
Matthew
AR, United States
"In all the years before, it had never occurred to me that I could possibly be carrying grief. After all, how could I have grief for someone whose death that I had caused? Well, I did have this grief, and I learned that some people call it the 'forbidden grief', because it’s not the kind of loss that you feel free to just talk about with anyone."

Importance of a Father
Barry
SK, Canada
"Some people say this is a women’s issue.  I say when men abdicate their role of supporting, respecting, and caring for women, there will be issues!"  Barry's 2019 March for Life testimony

We Never Talked About It
Jon
MI, United States
"I tried to forget about it, thinking it would eventually go away.  I was wrong.  I blamed myself for not standing up for my baby.  Inside, I felt shame, and I blamed myself for being a coward.  But we never talked about it." Jon's 2019 March for Life testimony

God's Mercy is Greater
Charles Brian
FL, United States
"I’ve climbed the mountain of depression, anxiety, & self-loathing. While I will never completely get over the loss of my children, I’ve come to peace and love in my heart for them and myself.  God loves you, and no sin is bigger than God’s mercy."  Charles Brian's 2019 March for Life testimony

Sacrifice
David
ON, Canada
"What I didn't understand was this: At the moment of conception, I was not a 'potential father'. I truly was a father. I selfishly pursued my career instead of my responsibility."  David's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

Through Chris's Love
Clinton
ON, Canada
"My girlfriend and I became estranged after the abortion.  Something that had been living in our relationship -- faith in each other or hope for our future -- was gone.  Our relationship ended a couple of years later.  Many years after that, the reality of my fatherhood hit me and wouldn't go away."  Clinton's testimony from the 2018 March for Life in Ottawa

Fr. Stephen's 2018 March for Life Testimony
Fr. Stephen
NM, United States
"In the 1970s I was living with my girlfriend, my Eve, away from my Catholic faith. I was responsible for her pregnancy and, like so many Adams do with their Eve’s, I told my girlfriend how it was not a good time for us to have a child, giving her all the lies that many men give to convince their Eves that abortion is the best way out of their problem."  Fr. Stephen's 2018 March for Life testimony

Chuck's 2018 March for Life Testimony
Chuck
MO, United States
"I now understand and believe that a woman’s love for her child is stamped in her heart by God. Her baby cannot be ripped away without devastating and permanent consequences. That wound is forever. Planned Parenthood, that was NOT health care, nor a reproductive right."  Chuck's 2018 March for Life testimony

Ken's 2018 March for Life Testimony
Ken
NM, United States

"The abortion of my son was completed against my will. I was hurting, feeling like I didn't do enough to save my child from going through the agonizing death of abortion. Our relationship ended that day. I was angry with God.  I could not understand why He would let this happen."  Ken’s 2018 March for Life testimony

Fr. Stephen's 2018 Walk for Life Testimony
Fr. Stephen
NM, United States
"At that moment I realized my healing involved the death of two children, Mary and Thomas, and the wounding of one woman, my Eve. I also realized that my apology to her and taking responsibility of the death of our two children removed a big obstacle to our healing." Fr. Stephen's 2018 Walk for Life Testimony

Releasing the Burden
Scott
MB, Canada
"I started drinking deliberately rather than casually at this time, hoping the awareness of the life we had conceived would disappear like the pregnancy had. But it did not. It never went away."  Scott's testimony from the 2017 March for Life in Ottawa

A Second Chance
David
ON, Canada
"I lost what I was trying to save with the abortion.  I sacrificed my children on the altar of my ambition. Addictions came into my life as I tried to run from the pain. My misery drove me to my knees and I gave my life to Jesus and eventually became Catholic in 1995."  David's testimony from the 2017 March for Life in Ottawa

This Gift From God
Clinton
ON, Canada
"I don’t remember any discussion at all, or even the date of the abortion, or the season – not even the exact year that the abortion took place.  When I think about it now, there is an unreality – a detachment – about the whole experience.  Yet the effects on my life are still unfolding and will for years to come."  Clinton's testimony from the 2017 March for Life in Ottawa

Standing Up for Our Children
Fr. Stephen
NM, United States

Men's Voices
Patrick
CA, United States
"Crystal and I did get married shortly after, however we never dealt with the issues of our previous abortion. I had suppressed those emotions so deep that I did not realize that I was not happy. There was a void, an emptiness I could not explain.  Deep down Inside I hated myself for what I did."  Patrick's testimony at Walk for Life 2017

Sparing Others
David
WI, United States

Dearest Zackary
Paul
CA, United States
"This year would have been your 25th birthday. I apologize and ask for your forgiveness for the “would have been” in that statement. I know you have forgiven me, and I know you are in the presence of Jesus, who has also forgiven me.  I ask for strength from Jesus to find a way to forgive myself."
