Special Guest Speaker
A wife and mother, Yvonne Florczak-Seeman has been called to speak out with authority on behalf of women and the unborn. Yvonne was sixteen years old when she made the agonizing decision to end the life of her unborn child. Yvonne not only survived that traumatic incident but also went on to have four additional abortions. Looking back, Yvonne believes that God allowed her to survive those terribly painful experiences so that she could tell others about the consequences of abortion. As the author of “A Time to Speak,” a healing journal for post-abortive women and the creator of a new 12-week Study Program called “A Time to Heal,” she now exists as a powerful testimony to God’s mercy and grace.
God has made it clear in Yvonne's life that her experiences are not things to be shrouded in silence and secrecy. She realizes that these revelations are beyond shocking. She shares them not to make you uncomfortable or to tap into your sympathy, but rather to encourage you to join with her in educating the masses of uninformed Catholics and Protestants, Pro-Choices and Pro-Lifers, Republicans and Democrats and White, Black and Hispanics. She feels we must educate others on the lifelong consequences of choice and clearly expose the lie that “choice protects women” or that if you are not “Pro-Choice you are not Pro-Woman”
