January 20, 2010
WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- Famed actress Jennifer O'Neill, civil rights activist Dr. Alveda King, and 45 Silent No More women and men from across the country will testify to their abortion experiences this Friday at 3:00 pm in front of the Supreme Court Building.
"The Silent No More Awareness Campaign was born of the grief, pain, and suffering that those of us who have had abortions know all too well," said Georgette Forney, a co-founder of the SNMAC. "We are growing in number because women have found that abortion is not the answer, it's the problem."
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, will gather with the Silent No More witnesses as the March for Life reaches the top of Capitol Hill. "The empty slogans of the child-killing industry avoid the realities of abortion," he stated. "The Silent No More Awareness Campaign lives and breathes those realities every day. One can't help but be moved and motivated by their stories."
"This year the Silent No More Awareness Campaign will be even more visible at the March," added Janet Morana, another co-founder of the SNMAC. "In addition to our signature 'I Regret My Abortion' and 'I Regret Lost Fatherhood' signs, we have distributed across the country over 45,000 new signs that say, 'Women Do Regret Abortion' and 'Men Regret Lost Fatherhood.' The message is simple, but in the lives of our members, profound."
Since the launching of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 3,423 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 489 gatherings in 48 states and seven countries where more than 103,583 attendees have heard the truth about abortion's negative aftereffects. More than 6,200 people are registered to be Silent No More. Raising awareness about the hurtful aftermath of abortion and the help that is available to cope with the pain are two of the Campaign's goals.
The Silent No More Awareness Campaign is a joint project of Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. For more information, please visit their website: www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org
