I went to Planned Parenthood a week ago and spoke to a young girl named Shannon. She had just found out she was pregnant a week and a half prior to coming in. I talked to her about how the father felt about the abortion she planned to have, whether her parents were supportive, and why she felt like abortion was the best option. She said she was an honor student and had big plans for her future. She had already picked out what college she would be attending this fall. I shared my story with her as well, and explained to her how similar our circumstances were. She even got to feel my daughter kick and said it was a wonderful experience. After talking to her for about an hour and a half, she agreed to go home and think about her decision harder and talk to her family and the father.
This morning she texted me and said she decided to eliminate abortion as an option. It was one of the best feelings in the world to get that news. She’s now leaning toward adoption but she’s doing what she can to see if she can keep her child. This is one of the reasons I am proud to be prolife. Not everyone has their hearts set on abortion; they just feel trapped and no one has explained to them the actual process of abortion. No one told her about the adverse effects of abortion. No one told her about how her baby already had a beating heart. This is why I am prolife; because prochoice people aren’t going to tell you the reality of abortion. Someone has to give these young women the facts of what they are doing.
I want to personally thank you for your efforts. Although the child you saved may never know your name, he or she will owe every joy and every challenge life has to offer to you and his or her brave mother for taking the time to reconsider the implications of what abortion really means.
You are my personal hero and I admire your willingness to continue to fight every day to save the lives of our most precious resource – the hope provided by an unborn child.
