Through their message of forgiveness and hope, a group of post-abortive women helped four mothers choose life for their unborn babies last week outside a Mississippi abortion facility.
Live Action News reports Serena Dyksen, founder of the post-abortion healing ministry She Found His Grace, organized the April 15 event with several other pro-life groups outside the Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only abortion facility in Mississippi.
On the sidewalk, the women shared their testimonies, many carrying signs that read “My choice has a name” above the names of their aborted babies.
Dyksen told Live Action that their group spoke with men, women and abortion workers, and four mothers canceled their abortion appointments that day. She said an abortion worker also listened to their stories and decided to quit her job.
“It’s post-abortive, healed voices rising up and taking back the land,” she told the pro-life news outlet.
She said post-abortive women and men are “the strongest voice to help end abortion,” and they are changing the culture.
In a video of the event posted online, one woman testified about how she struggled with the pain and regret of her abortion for a long time before she found forgiveness in Christ.
“The truth is my baby became a living sacrifice for my own selfish will so I could live how I wanted to without restraint,” the woman said.

Holding a sign with her aborted daughter’s name, Mercy Jubilee, the woman said she felt “numb and emotionless” as she sat in the abortion facility. She said the abortion workers did not want her to see her unborn baby’s ultrasound image, and, when she insisted, they flashed it quickly before her eyes.
Immediately after the abortion, she said she felt both relief and grief, but as time went on, she began drowning her pain in alcohol and promiscuity. Then, one day, she said Jesus Christ changed her life, and she found healing and forgiveness for ending her baby’s life.
“God has taken my pain and turned it into purpose, and that is why I am silent no more,” she said.
Other post-abortive mothers also shared their stories at the event, including women with the pro-life organizations Not Forgotten Ministries, Arise Daughter, PATH (Post-Abortion Transformation & Healing), H3Helpline, and Journeys of Choice, according to Live Action.
The Mississippi abortion facility where they shared their testimonies is at the center of a major abortion case that could overturn Roe v. Wade. The U.S. Supreme Court heard the case in December, and a ruling is expected this summer, likely in June.
Since Roe in 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies have been killed and countless mothers and fathers harmed by supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.
