CONTACT: Colleen Barry at 347-245-9476 or Silentnomorenyc@yahoo.com
The Campaign seeks to expose and heal the secrecy surrounding the emotional and physical pain of abortion. Since officially launching the Campaign in January 2003, 180 Gatherings have occurred in 6 countries and 48 states.
This gathering is one of many happening throughout America and in Washington D.C. through 2006. Each participant is "Silent No More" by giving a 2 minute testimonial. Those choosing not to give a testimonial attend in support with the speakers.
The campaign has three main goals:
1. Educate the public that abortion is harmful emotionally, physically and spiritually.
2. Inform women who are hurting from an abortion that there is help.
3. Invite women to join us in speaking the truth about abortion?s negative consequences.
3 ways to participate:
a) If you are a post abortive person who would like to speak out about the harm abortion has brought to your life.
b) If you are a post abortive person who does not wish to speak but is willing to hold a sign saying "I Regret My Abortion"
c) As a general support person who will attend as a spectator (we need you there!)
If you are planning to attend or have questions please email Colleen Barry at Silentnomorenyc@yahoo.com or call 347-245-9476. Your feedback is appreciated.
Georgette Forney, Executive Director of NOEL (National Organization of Episcopalians for Life) and Janet Morana, Associate Director of Priests for Life are the Co-Founders of this Campaign.
