Hope and healing after abortion focus of March 5 Crystal Lake event
February 27, 2020
CRYSTAL LAKE—A Silent No More Campaign speaking event will be held on Thursday, March 5, 7 p.m. at McHenry County College, 8900 US-14, Crystal Lake, in the Luecht Conference Center, Door B.
 
The Silent No More Awareness is a campaign to help the public become aware of the devastation abortion brings to many men and women. The campaign seeks to expose and heal the secrecy and silence surrounding the emotional and physical pain of abortion. 
 
It also provides post-abortive women and men with hope and resources so they, too, can heal from the negative emotional, physical and spiritual consequences they experience. 
 
At this event, sponsored by Right to Life McHenry County, three post-abortive women and a husband will share their unique, personal stories. One woman aborted her child at the young age of 14. Another did so while in college. The third followed her doctor’s recommendation when she was given an adverse diagnosis of her baby.
 
In addition to the three speakers, Donna Moore, Director for the Office of Pro-Life Activities and Special Ministries for the Diocese of Springfield and facilitator of diocesan Rachel’s Vineyard retreats, will speak about the methods available to pursue healing from abortion. 
 
A member of the clergy will be on hand to assist with any grief counseling. Informative post-abortion material will be available as well as the book No One Told Me I Could Cry while supplies lasts. And finally, a representative of post-abortive counseling will provide information on the next step towards hope and healing.
