Nearly a dozen women gathered at Phoenix Park in Lexington Thursday to discuss regretting their abortions.
The women are part of the "Silent No More Awareness Campaign." The women said they wanted to share their abortion stories with the world to let other women know that the effects of an abortion last a lifetime.
"This is something that you have to live with for the rest of your life, there's going to be sometime physical trauma, emotional trauma, and spiritual trauma. It's not a simple procedure that you will just forget. It will live with you for the rest of your life," said Kathy Rutledge, the leader of the "Silent No More Awareness Campaign" in Kentucky.
The campaign is a worldwide initiative.
