Heather walked back into her apartment, bag in hand.

Her boyfriend greeted her at the door, holding their 3-month-old daughter.

“Baby, you don’t have to do this.” Heather ignored him and walked into the kitchen to pour herself a glass of water.

She pulled the morning-after pill out of the bag and took it.

This was the second one.

Maybe it would work this time.

“But what if it doesn’t work,” she thought.

She pulled out her phone and searched for abortion information on Google.

She clicked on a Heroic Media ad which connected her with our Pregnancy Help Center partner in Chicago.

Heather made an appointment and came into the center by herself.

She told her client advocate that her boyfriend wanted her to keep this baby, but she barely felt capable of caring for her 3-month-old daughter as it was.

She felt completely overwhelmed.

Her client advocate told Heather that she was a capable mother.

She had given life to her precious daughter and her daughter was thriving.

The client advocate also pointed out what a gift it was to have a father to her children who loved and supported her and their babies.

She shared with Heather the reality of the abortion procedure and the potential risks and side effects.

Heather’s mind began to change.

Encouraged by the words of affirmation and empowered by the education, Heather was ready to see her baby on the ultrasound.

Before her eyes, her perfect 7-week-old baby appeared on the screen, and she was amazed.

She could not stop smiling.

Heather put the thought of abortion out of her mind and decidedly chose life for her baby!

Thanks be to God!
