Restored Lives After Abortion
I THOUGHT I WAS HELPING
I wasn't the father of an aborted child but I was a friend of a woman who was seeking abortion. At the time, I thought I was helping her by driving her to and from the abortion clinic. My life was negatively impacted by my decision. But then Broken from Silence helped me work through my own trauma of being involved with an abortion. Now, with greater understanding and support, I actively engage in the prolife ministry.
I AM SET FREE
After many years had passed, I thought I came to terms with the abortions I had and I knew God had forgiven me. What I didn't realize was how much my life was still impacted from the silent pain I was carrying. My Broken from Silence mentor helped me understand what PAS was. I realized that I had many of the symptoms. It took some time to work through each one, but I'm thankful I did. I'm not only forgiven, I'm set free!
My healing began through resources provided to me from the Broken from Silence ministry at my church. After learning about post-abortion syndrome symptoms, I wept for what seemed like hours. I now know there were people who understood the inner turmoil that I was dealing with as a result of my abortion. I'm overcoming the walls that I built up over the years and I have received healing from bitterness towards others.
CUT AWAY THE LAYERS
Abortion is not an easy trauma to deal with. After many years I still felt as though I was 17 years old, crouched in a corner with not a soul to talk to. But then there was Broken from Silence! I feel the Lord really cut away all the layers and cultivated what He has in me now through this.
FROM DEATH TO LIFE
I was silent about my abortion for 30 years. After realizing the magnitude of my sin, I wanted to be healed from the guilt and shame that weighed down on me. I now can stand strong for the unborn, hold my head high at home, in my church, and in my community. I have been set free to share with others my journey from death to life.
I LEARNED TO BE A BETTER FATHER
I am blessed to go to a church that equips us to understand the impact abortion has on the people in the church. Because of Broken from Silence, I've learned how to be a better father and instill within my sons the value of human life from conception to death.
THANK YOU PASTOR
Because my pastor had a heart to help those who were sitting stoically, silently in pain due to their involvement in abortion, I am one of the many under his shepherding that has been set free from guilt and shame. Real problems need real solutions, and by the grace of God I was pastored by a man who understood.
OPENED MY EYES
Broken from Silence has been a life changer for me. Going through the program opened my eyes to the importance of sharing my personal experience with abortion and also the wonderful healing power of a loving God.
REPAIRED AND HEALED
Everything in my life seemed hopeless. I wanted to die. I wondered why I wasn't compassionate towards others. I realized that I lost that compassion when I had those abortions. Forty years later, God used Broken from Silence to repair and heal me. My life has been restored. Thank you! You truly helped me.
GRACE SO SUFFICIENT
It became painfully obvious the need for my admission and confession of my sin of three abortions. Through my confession, I have been able to face my past and deal with it through God's love and grace for me. I have come to a deeper and more intimate understanding of God and His word through Broken from Silence. I no longer have to try to forgive myself because He and His truth have purified my heart and have shown me that I am truly forgiven by Him. I am set free and broken from my silent shame.

TRUTH SETS THE CAPTIVE FREE
While incarcerated I attended a Bible study. I didn't know what it was about until listening to the presenter. As she was teaching, I realized my own self-deception. I abruptly said, "Oh my gosh! I just realized I had an abortion. I was lying to everyone for so long saying I had a miscarriage that I even believed my own lie." The guilt and shame from my abortion was so great that I couldn't admit what I had done. I'm grateful to have learned of and received God's forgiveness. I'm no longer imprisoned!
