Today’s Save Story: Victoria

Victoria felt crushed.

She had been pregnant before and had been too afraid to parent.

With the experience of that abortion in her past, she knew she never wanted to go through that again.

She wanted to keep this baby.

But her boyfriend had other plans.

He told her they needed to get an abortion, and quickly.

He told her to get an appointment as fast as she could so they could “take care of this”.

Trying to hold back tears, Victoria searched on Google for abortion information.

She clicked on a Heroic Media ad and texted the number listed, connecting with our Pregnancy Help Center partner in Chicago.

Victoria and her boyfriend came to the center together.

The client advocate asked to first speak with Victoria alone.

She told Victoria she could share freely what was going on. Victoria told her advocate that she had an abortion in her past and that her boyfriend was pressuring her to get another one, but she didn’t want that again.

The client advocate reassured Victoria that she was strong, beautiful, brave, and capable.

She asked Victoria if she had any family who could help and Victoria shared that her father and brothers wanted to support her in continuing the pregnancy.

Her advocate encouraged Victoria to see the gift of these men in her life.

When it was time for the ultrasound, the advocate invited Victoria’s boyfriend to come and see.

The screen lit up with their fully-formed, precious and perfect little 16-week-old baby.

Victoria and her boyfriend stared at the screen, in awe.

Together they chose life for their child!

Praise the Lord!
