Catherine is a 26-year-old who faced a sudden, unexpected pregnancy.
She and her boyfriend have five children together, and felt overwhelmed when they found out about this pregnancy.
Catherine saw no other way but to get an abortion.
She turned to her phone for information about the abortion pill, and clicked on a Heroic Media ad that led her to call one of our Pregnancy Help Center partners in Chicago.
Catherine spoke on the phone with a receptionist, who could tell Catherine was experiencing stress and fear.
The receptionist encouraged Catherine to come in for an appointment, so she agreed to come in a few days later.
Catherine walked through the doors with her boyfriend.
She and her boyfriend stated they could not imagine bringing another child into their situation.
The client advocate provided options counseling, and offered an ultrasound.
After seeing their 8-week-old baby on the screen, Catherine and her boyfriend knew they could not go through with an abortion.
They decided to continue their pregnancy!
