One dark secret pro-abortion advocates won’t discuss is how many women are pressured into their choice to terminate pregnancies — when they’re most vulnerable.
Former Colombian model and actress Amada Rose Pérez is one of them, but now she’s telling her story.
By God’s grace, her traumatic abortion, that might have left her emotionally scarred, led to a life-changing experience with God.
In an interview with Aleteia, Pérez talks about the pressure and deception that contributed to her decision.
“‘I was never in favor of abortion,’ she says. ‘I had an abortion out of fear, because I was pressured by my partner and I believed in what they told me, that the most important thing was my dreams and my professional success.’ The result was several years of pain and guilt that ended through God’s mercy.”
She shared her belief that all women who have abortions carry deep wounds, which is why she believes it’s important for her to tell her story.
“I don’t know any woman who has had an abortion and has not lived through hell, but I know many mothers who have had their children, and they are their greatest blessing and their happiness.”
Now the actress is a 45-year-old mother of a 5-year-old son. She has been the face of many brands as well as an actress on soap operas.
She is carrying to others a message of hope, chastity, purity, and what she believes is the truth — abortion is a violence against women and children.
“What we must ask ourselves is who is behind this. Behind abortion is a big business run by men who make women believe that they’re fighting for their rights, when what they’re doing is harming their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health.”
“We’re living in a culture of death that wants to take away the value of motherhood, and is damaging the minds and hearts of girls and women who think that if they end the life of their children they will be free. On the contrary, that makes them slaves,” she said.
The Epoch Times reported that while Pérez was often smiling in interviews and keeping up appearances, like many women who have chosen abortion, she was masking a broken heart, full of shame and remorse.
Pérez is now devoted to her faith in Jesus, her family, and to promoting her message of life.

With her trauma behind her, Pérez says that there is hope. For anyone suffering from abortion, there is healing, new life in Christ, and support to help overcome the wounds and heal the broken-hearted.
Men, too, she states, carry pain from abortion and there is also help for them.
She told The Catholic News Agency, “‘Before I was always in a hurry, stressed out, and got upset easily. Now I live in peace, the world doesn’t appeal to me, I enjoy every moment the Lord gives me.'”
She shares her testimony so others will know that peace that only comes from God, too.
