WASHINGTON, Jan. 18 /Standard Newswire/ -- It is one of the most common surgical procedures done on women every day, but rarely do you hear anyone talk about it. Until now! On Monday, January 22nd, at 4pm – 7pm in front of the Supreme Court Building, 35 courageous women from all over the country will tell all, sharing the secret that once controlled their lives. The women have joined the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and are taking their message to the streets.  They believe women deserve to know the truth about the emotional pain after abortion, and also the help that is available for those who are suffering as they once did.

 

Event Details ---

Who: Silent No More Awareness Campaign

What: Powerful testimonies revealing the truth about abortion

When: Monday, January 22nd, 4 pm to 7 pm

Where: US Supreme Court Building

 

 

In one of the most daring developments since the landmark Roe vs. Wade decision 34 years ago, hundreds of women across the nation are talking about crying in dark closets, becoming infertile, taking drugs, having nightmares, giving up hope—all because of having an abortion.

 

According to Georgette Forney, event organizer, "This is not a rally about abortion politics as usual, it's about reaching out to people who are struggling after an abortion and don't know help is available.  It's also about helping the public understand that reproductive rights aren't really right for women. Abortion affects us emotionally, physically and spiritually."

 

This is the fifth anniversary of women being Silent No More and the testimonies will feature a couple from St. Louis sharing the pain they lived with after aborting their first child years ago. More than 20 Gatherings are taking place nationwide during the last two weeks of January.

 

Silent No More's effectiveness is being seen in an increase of the number of people seeking help through abortion after-care programs. And in October 2006, the American Psychological Association withdrew an official statement denying a link between abortion and psychological harm, while at the same time 15 of Great Britain's leading obstetricians and psychiatrists penned an open letter to the London Times acknowledging the psychological consequences of abortions. Clearly, women deserve to know the truth about abortion.

 

Since officially launching the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 2100 women and men have shared testimonies at 160 Gatherings that have occurred in 44 states and 5 countries with more than 12,030 spectators having heard the truth about abortion's negative after-affects.  More than 3,800 people have registered online to be silent no more. The Campaign is sponsored by Anglicans for Life and Priests for Life. Visit www.SilentNoMoreAwareness.org.
