Father’s Day – Healing: Shockwaves of Abortion

Father’s Day – Healing: Shockwaves of Abortion

When Chuck Raymond stood outside the U.S. Supreme Court during this year’s March for Life, he held a sign that read “I Regret Lost Fatherhood.” In his testimony for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign that day, the St. Louis resident said: “The pain of my lost fatherhood remains with me every day but now through God's grace and mercy and His unconditional love, I live with joy and peace."

In order to put the abortion event behind them, parents shut down their feelings and repress them deep into the unconscious. Some women and many men have the capacity for a time to successfully dissociate from this painful violation of the heart, soul and body and on the surface function quite well. Read More

As the Regional Coordinator of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, my job is to make the public aware of the devastation abortion brings to women and men, our families, and society.
