Can a marriage survive abortion?

Cradle My Heart Radio  welcomes Silent No More Awareness Campaign speakers Linda and Chuck Raymond February 15 at 9 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’ll talk about the impact of abortion on the marriage relationship. The statistics say most marriages will not survive abortion, as I reported here. But this week, we’ll meet a couple who beat the odds as we welcome Chuck and Linda Raymond. Linda is Silent No More Campaign Regional Coordinator for Missouri. Hers is a story of how abortion impacts relationships, especially with her husband, Chuck, and their parents. The message is deeply touching and greatly encouraging to those who feel isolated and defeated by the abortion experience of the past.

Linda’s involvement in prolife work includes volunteering for the Coalition for Life/ St Louis, co-directing her parish’s Respect Life Committee, participating in the March for Life in DC, the Midwest March for Life and the Walk for Life, San Francisco. She has spoken at numerous events over the years to include MO Right to Life banquet, 40 Days for Life and the Commemorate and Commit banquet held by the St Louis Archdiocese.

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.
