Have you had an abortion?
Canada Silent No More-Exposing the lies to save women and children
My story: My name is Denise Mountenay. I was raped at the age of 13! My virginity was stolen. I felt dirty, and sadly never told anyone.
At 16, I got preganant and thought to myself, I can do this...and began to plan to have my baby...but after telling my Mom I was pregnant, she told me I was too young, and to have this "operation" and forget about it and get on with my life. Well, I had that abortion, figuring it was alright, since my Mom, the government and doctor all thought it was ok.
Years later, I got pregnant again, and my boyfriend went into a fit of rage when I told him I was pregnant, and demanded I have an abortion. (I thought he loved me).
Besides the doctor told me it was just a "clump of tissue" at 8-9 weeks. He lied, many years later I discovered that my babies had a beating heart by 3 weeks, ARMS, LEGS, fingers and toes etc by 8 weeks. Whereby, I was devastated.
This time I went into a Buffalo, NY abortion clinic and was wide awake during this horrific, traumatic procedure. , which felt like i was being raped again! When it was over, I curled up into a fetal position on the table, and felt like my brain had snapped...I could not speak for some time.
This legal abortion was not a "safe" procedure either! I got an infection, damaged cervix and badly scarred uterus. For months I suffered with depression, and just wanted to die, and started to drink heavily and take lots of drugs to numb the pain ...
Like many women under the influence, I had a one night stand and got pregnant a third time...and the shame of not knowing who the father was, or where he was...reeled me back into a hospital for a third abortion; as a form of birth control.
My aborted children would be 40, 30 and 29 years old now. Jennifer, Daniel and Rebecca are their names. I sure miss them. I miss not having my daughters. I miss not being a grandmother by now too.
Many studies confirm abortion causes depression, suicides, anxiety and eating disorders, sterility, pre-term births in subsequent pregnancies, cervical and Breast Cancer too...My dream is to make 2 documentaries on the risks and harm of legal abortion on women, and a dramatic movie on my story...not that I am anyone special, but my story is typical for hundreds of thousands of women in this generation.
For the last 25 years I have dedicated my life in being a voice for them, speaking to high school students, and prisoners, to women in conferences and churches...and even going to the United Nations for the last 7 or 8 years now to share my testimony on the pain of legal abortion, how it is hurting women, and took the lives of my dear children.
Recently, I was nominated and blessed to recieve The Diamond Jubilee Medal from Queen Elizabeth through the Governor General of Canada for trying to save women and children from this great evil, and ministering God's love and peace to comfort former abortion patients prevalent in our society today.
Abortion is not a black and white issue...it is blood red. Please help us get our stories out. Thanks for listening, thanks for listening.
My favourite song is 'Amazing Grace'.

ps...if you search me on youtube, you can see a few interviews with me on it. My heart is to help hurting women recover after abortion, save babies from being aborted, and bring education and awareness to the forefront on what an abortion really is, and what it does. I hope and pray you will give me the opportunity to share my story with your viewers.
