Cradle My Heart Radio welcomes Silent No More Awareness Campaign speaker Georgette Forney on January 4 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 one of the Campaign’s Co-Founders, Georgette Forney. She is also the President of Anglicans for Life, and serves on the National Pro-Life Religious Council’s Board of Directors.
We’ll discuss the new yearlong initiative Healing the Shockwaves of Abortion and Georgette will share her story of teen abortion and the healing she has experienced in the ensuing years. Through her healing and restoration experience, she developed a greater understanding of the negative impact abortion has on women and on society. Her passion for helping women find peace after abortion is matched by her desire to see young people make positive life choices.
Georgette models what it is to experience hurt, to heal and then to reach back and help others who are hurting still.
Through Silent No More Awareness, thousands have shared personal testimonies of hurt and healing to help others avoid the pain of abortion, so that it becomes unacceptable for anyone to recommend abortion as a ‘fix’ for a problem pregnancy.
