What is the Silent No More Awareness
Silent No More Awareness 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. The Campaign began November 11th, 2002. As of June 2013 the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has held 1,274 Gatherings in 10 countries & 48 states with 5,659 women and men sharing their abortion testimonies. Testimonies have also been shared at 68 high schools and universities in the last 3 years, 10 in 2013.
There are 1,918 testimonies posted on the Campaign website, with 274 that are shared via video! Currently there are 14,485 people registered with the Campaign representing 77 countries.
People who are not ready to join the Campaign, are invited to ‘register their regret’. So far, 3,946 women and 479 men have said they regret their abortion or lost fatherhood. 369 women and men have posted memorials to their children.
In 2011, we surveyed Campaign members; 328 surveys were returned – 310 women/18 men representing 450 abortions. More than ½ didn’t begin looking for healing until after 20 years. The longest was 36 years and the shortest was 1 month. The majority shared their testimony and gave us permission to share it.
Many people responding to the survey made comments of how the campaign has positively impacted their lives.
The Campaign is a project of Priests for Life and Anglicans for Life.
What are the Goals of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign?
- Reach out to people hurt after abortion, encouraging them
to attend abortion after-care programs. Invite those who are ready to break
the silence by speaking the truth about abortion's negative consequences and
the path to healing.
- Educate the public that abortion is harmful emotionally,
physically and spiritually to women, men and families, so that it becomes
unacceptable for anyone to recommend abortion as a 'fix' for a problem
- Share our personal testimonies of hurt and healing to
help others avoid the pain of abortion.

Why do we need a Silent No More Awareness Campaign?
Many women and men are realizing the abortions they were involved in years ago
are the source of the physical and emotional problems they have today. The
Campaign gives them a forum to help others by sharing the painful consequences
Women talk about feeling guilt, anger, shame and worthlessness; and how they
struggled with suicidal thoughts, drug/alcohol addiction to numb the pain,
eating disorders or depression. Men share how the abortion of their children
caused them to feel pain, guilt, and anger. They also share their experience in
finding peace and healing.
These voices of experience need to be heard so others can learn about the help
that is available. They also want people who think abortion is a good solution
for someone facing an unplanned pregnancy to understand the real long-term
consequences their friend or loved one is likely to face in the future.
Is the Silent No More Awareness Campaign trying to end
We believe that abortion should be unnecessary and unthinkable. While abortion
must be addressed on many fronts - including the legal, political, and ethical
arenas - the Silent No More Awareness Campaign addresses abortion by personal
testimony that touches hearts. Evidence of the damage abortion does to women,
men and others will help persuade society that women in an unexpected pregnancy
deserve better help than abortion.

How did the Silent No More Awareness Campaign begin?
Through their work in abortion recovery and personal abortion experience, the
co-founders saw the ongoing need to let the public hear from the many women who
regret their abortion and do not believe abortion is a good thing for women.
They wanted to show that NOW and NARAL do not represent all women on this issue.
The campaign has grown primarily through a network of pregnancy resource
centers, abortion recovery support organizations, and pro-life groups.
Why does the Campaign use the butterfly logo?
The Silent No More Awareness butterfly logo expresses the transformation of a
woman when she has experienced help and healing after abortion. The
transformation of a caterpillar in a cocoon into a beautiful butterfly captures
the change that happens to women when they experience God's love and
