Mary

One morning in March 2015, our advisor went to the hospital to talk to a young woman who was going to have an abortion. The woman was ready, and the anesthesiologist was waiting to start the procedure. Even though there were only a few minutes, our counselor was not discouraged. This was a woman who needed information. She needed someone to listen and to tell that abortion can be harmful.

After a brief conversation, she realized that there is no reason as great and important as the importance and value of the life of her child and her own health. With the help and support offered by us, she was encouraged to cancel the abortion. Several times the nurse came and called to enter the room, but the young woman was unable to move. Finally, she made a decision – she would not abort! She decided to face her challenges and to fight her circumstances and to give her unborn child a chance to live. This mother never regretted her decision.

In December of 2015 little Mary was born. This brave mother later told us that on the morning she was going to have an abortion, her mother-in-law begged God on her knees in her room to save her grandchild. God heard her prayer.
