Georgette Forney


Georgette Forney is the President of Anglicans for Life and the co-founder of the National Silent No More Awareness Campaign.  She is a woman who had an abortion at age 16.  Nineteen years later, Georgette experienced healing, forgiveness and reconciliation after going through an abortion recovery healing program.

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.

Eileen Smith

 

Eileen Smith received a "Baptism of Fire" and became a crusader for the Pro-Life Movement almost overnight when her 22 year old adopted daughter, Laura, died on the abortion table September 13th, 2007.  

Laura was raised in a Christian pro-life home and was pro-life her whole life.The moment Eileen heard of her death, she prayed that the Lord would bring something good out of her death so she could bear it.

Faithful to answer prayer, the Lord set about giving Eileen opportunity to speak about Laura's story all over the country almost immediately with amazing results. Eileen says she feels "empowered, emboldened and emblazoned by the Holy Spirit" to speak, not to the secular world, but to the church with a message that the Lord has given her for this time.

Eileen has said the rest of her life will be spent for LIFE as she tirelessly travels with her message. "Every time I speak, I believe I put another nail in the coffin of the abortion industry". Abortion can end in our lifetime, she believes and impassionedly, she tells you how. Laura's story is one that will move you as you hear the " beauty from ashes" told from a mother's heart.
