Georgette is entering her fifteenth year as the president of Anglicans for Life, the only Anglican ministry dedicated to inspiring the Anglican Church to understand and compassionately apply God's Word when addressing abortion, abstinence, adoption, euthanasia, and embryonic stem cell research.
She is also the co-founder of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, an effort to raise awareness about the physical, spiritual, and emotional harm abortion does to women and to let those who are hurting from abortion know help is available. Since launching the Campaign in 2003, over 5,612 women and men have shared their testimonies at over 1,195 gatherings in 48 states and 10 countries. More than 159,429 people have heard the truth about abortion's negative side effects at events around the world and in high schools and universities and over 1,718 testimonies (214 shared via video) are posted on the campaign website here: SilentNoMoreAwareness.org
Mrs. Forney had an abortion at age sixteen and later experienced healing, forgiveness, and reconciliation after going through an abortion recovery program. She serves on the board of directors for the Abortion Recovery International Network (ARIN) that is compiling the only comprehensive online database of abortion recovery counselors so others who hurt can get connected to healing programs. She has been interviewed on numerous radio programs and has spoken at many crisis pregnancy center banquets, pro-life conferences, conventions, churches, rallies, and university and college campuses. Recently Mrs. Forney has spoken at the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children's annual conference in England and at Princeton University's Organization of Women Leaders Conference. In May 2005 she attended a meeting with nineteen religious leaders and President Bush. She lives in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, with her husband of over 30 years; their daughter is a designer in New York City.
