The Minnesota chapter of Silent No More has its own webpage, which you can find here.

It has better graphics and design than either of the two national Silent No More groups, although the butterflies in the background are distracting.

Silent No More is a new organization of post-abortive women speaking out about the tragedy that abortion has been for them. Its first public event was a gathering on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court on January 22, 2003--the 30th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. About sixty women from around the country came together there, and each spoke for several minutes about her experience of abortion while others carried signs that said "I Regret My Abortion".

I don't know all the details, but later on, the group that had organized that event split into two separate Silent No More groups. One of them calls itself the Silent No More Awareness campaign. The other calls itself Silent No More-Operation Outcry or SNM-OO.

It goes without saying, but these maneuvers suggest that the leadership of these groups is not yet developed enough to allow the groups to make a significant impact.

I was pleased, though, to see that the SNM Awareness Campaign has added new (graphically challenged) materials to its website, and in addition to sponsoring small state gatherings around the country in September, is also planning to host an event in D.C. on September 10 for women to speak of their post-abortion regrets.
