Abortion victims to speak out at Westminster this Saturday

Abortion victims to speak out at Westminster this Saturday Women deserve better than abortion - that is why they are being 'Silent No More'. Westminster, Thursday 25th October 2007 - To commemorate the tragedy of 40 years of abortion in our country, there will be a 'Silent No More Gathering' taking place at Old Palace Yard, Westminster (opposite entrance to the House of Lords) this Saturday 27th October starting at 10:00a.m. This public gathering will feature the stories of women and men who have had personal abortion experience. They will tell of their feelings of grief and sadness but also of peace and healing. They want to reach out to those struggling after an abortion experience and to tell them that help is available. Women, men and the wider family deserve better than the death of their child as the solution to an unplanned pregnancy. Speaking at the Westminster event will be, among others: * Margaret Cuthill from Scotland: "My abortions did not resolve any of the fears I had in being pregnant. The reality was I changed one set of problems for another that could never be changed. I chose the death of my children as a life solution". * Tracy Joynes from Southampton: "Abortion killed my baby, it also destroyed a large part of me". These and other brave people are willing to stand up in public to tell of their personal abortion experience. It is thanks to this courage that the secrecy and silence surrounding the pain of abortion is being brought out into the public domain. This event is one of a series that have been and will be held in towns and cities across the UK.
