Why do we need a Silent No More Awareness
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
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 abortion?
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
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
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 forgiveness.
