The Hand of God

In case you missed it, here are some of the fruits of this October's Seattle Silent No More Awareness Campaign in Westlake Park.

A young woman with tears in her eyes came up to Kim Johnson looking for help. Kim was able to give her the contact info for Silent No More Awareness.

"Longtime observers" of events in Westlake Park said -- "This was the most worthwhile event we've ever had at Westlake Center. Keep doing what you are doing."

An elderly homeless man who appeared to be part American Indian told us about his relative who'd had an abortion. We were able to give him a SNMA card with the number of the toll-free help line as well as the local number for Project Rachel.

One man mentioned that one of the speakers reminded him of a women he knew that might have had an abortion and thought he might look her up to see how she was doing.

Two high school students took photographs for a photo essay.

Several men and women had a look of shock on their face when they wandered into the square. They turned around and left when they saw the signs "I Regret my Abortion." I really wonder what these people were thinking. Had they been involved in an abortion? Maybe they were "ok" with abortion but didn't think anyone actually got one. Whatever the reason behind their reaction they really, really, really did not want to deal with it.
