What is the Silent No More Awareness Campaign?
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 December 2013 the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has held 1,325 Gatherings in 17 countries & 48 states with 5,715 women and men sharing their abortion testimonies. Testimonies have also been shared at 72 high schools and universities in the last 4 years.
There are 2.014 testimonies posted on the Campaign website, with 293 that are shared via video! Currently there are 14,979 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, 4,239 women and 516 men have said they regret their abortion or lost fatherhood. 443 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 half did not 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.
