More times than not, women seeking abortion do so because they’ve been taught by the culture that abortion is their “only option” when facing an unexpected pregnancy.
In addition, they hear growing up that abortion is “mostly ‘normal’” and “societally acceptable.”
Taking the lives of preborn babies as being considered “normal” is one of the saddest realities about abortion in America today.
After all, it’s been “legalized” for nearly 50 years.
God, have mercy on us.
Grace was just like many of these women.
Recently discovering she was pregnant, she began searching the internet for a facility to help her get an abortion.
She was motivated by the reality that she wasn’t quite sure who the father of her baby was.
The baby could be the child of her current boyfriend, or possibly of a previous boyfriend – with whom Grace knew she did not want to co-parent…
Faced with the stress and uncertainty of her current reality, Grace’s online search triggered Heroic Media’s OAASYS Emergency Response ad at the top of her search results.
Thankfully, she was connected with client advocates at OAASYS’s Pregnancy Help Center partner in Tulsa, Oklahoma!
Grace’s boyfriend accompanied her to her appointment.
They listened and learned about the loving options– the alternatives to abortion – as well as the support offered by local life-affirming organizations.
They even received an ultrasound – but it appeared Grace was too early in the pregnancy to be able to see the baby.
They left the appointment with “the abortion option” still predominantly in their minds.
Thankfully, they returned for a second ultrasound.
This time, upon seeing the living baby inside Grace’s womb, her boyfriend exclaimed that he wanted to parent the baby regardless of whether or not he was the father.
This was exciting and encouraging news!
But Grace was still apprehensive and undecided.
Yet – she was willing to come back a third time.
And this time, Grace looked at her baby once again on the ultrasound screen.
And THIS time, she found the courage from within to make the decision to choose LIFE rather than abortion for this child!
The support of the client advocates, the center, and her boyfriend bolstered her confidence to embark on this new journey.
And the pregnancy center continues to offer her support to this day.
Thank you for your support of OAASYS’s Emergency Response campaigns.
Your role is critical in reaching so many young women, just like Grace, who sometimes simply need to learn the truth about abortion and the encouragement that they are not alone!
