Cradle My Heart Radio welcomes Silent No More Awareness Campaign speaker Nancy Tanner November 16 at 9:30 pm ET
When we launched Cradle My Heart Radio in 2012, a large part of our mission and vision was to create a safe space to share our stories. Now helping us fulfill that mission is our partnership with the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. The Campaign helps women and men prepare to speak out in safety for the benefit of others.
This week we welcome Nancy Tanner, Silent No More regional coordinator for Northern Virginia.
Nancy suffered the trauma of a coerced abortion and recalls the details, as she sheds light on the truth of what abortion is, and what it does to the bodies of women and children. This truth is often intentionally shrouded in the rhetoric of reproductive choice. But no such tact or deference was afforded to Nancy during her emotionally brutal and devastating procedure.
She has spoken out in the public square, as well as in legislative settings, including this 2011 news conference led by US Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ). Nancy’s statement appears near the 27:00 minute mark, but if you have time, watch it all.
From the SNM website:
Silent No More Awareness is a Campaign whereby Christians make the public aware of the devastation abortion brings to women and men. The campaign seeks to expose and heal the secrecy and silence surrounding the emotional and physical pain of abortion. The Campaign began November 11th, 2002. As of September 2014 the Silent No More Awareness Campaign has held 1,394 Gatherings in 17 countries & 48 states with 5,802 women and men sharing their abortion testimonies. Testimonies have also been shared at 95 high schools and universities in the last 4 years, 23 in 2014 to date. Currently there are 15,639 people registered with the Campaign representing 77 countries. People who are not ready to join the Campaign, are invited to ‘register their regret’. So far, 4713 women and 555 men have said they regret their abortion or lost fatherhood. 508 women and men have posted memorials to their children.
