STATEN ISLAND, NY., Mar. 5 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Silent No More Awareness Campaign (SNMAC), the world's largest network of women and men harmed by abortion, will join the 40 Days for Life campaign on March 10 to testify to the physical and emotional damage wrought by the abortion industry.
"We will stand with those in the 40 Days for Life vigils outside abortion businesses to let women know that abortion doesn't end a problem, it creates a lifetime of new ones," said Janet Morana, co-founder of SNMAC. "We will bear witness that the abortionist's tools don't just attack an unborn child's body, they attack a woman's soul."
The 40 Days for Life campaign participants are currently fasting and praying, keeping vigil outside abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood offices, and engaging in outreach to 130 communities until April 5 with the goal of ending abortion. The 40 Days campaign has designated March 10 as Silent No More Awareness Day. The Silent No More Awareness Campaign holds regular gatherings throughout the year in cities worldwide.
"The abortion industry says that March 10 is 'Thank Your Abortion Provider Day,'" added Georgette Forney, another co-founder of SNMAC, "which has to be the worst idea since Planned Parenthood offered Christmas gift certificates for abortion. We will reclaim that day by sending a different message to our abortion providers -- stop the lies, put down your killing tools, and seek forgiveness."
Since the launching of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign in 2003, 2,809 women and men have shared their testimonies publicly at over 348 gatherings in 44 states and seven countries where more than 43,000 spectators have heard the truth about abortion's negative aftereffects. More than 6,100 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 our website:
