Making ends meet was getting more difficult each day for Katie, a single mother of three.

The mom-and-pop restaurant she’d been working at as a server was forced to close its doors over the summer, and she couldn’t seem to find another job that would pay enough to support her family.

Katie was feeling alone, and a bit “hopeless.”

She’d weathered difficult storms in her life before, but she’d never had to weather them completely “on her own.”

Unemployed, single, and estranged from her family, the only place Katie “knew to turn to” when she suspected she was pregnant was “the internet.”

She began searching for abortion information.

Thanks to your support of Heroic Media’s OAASYS Emergency Response ads, she was connected with one of OAASYS’s Pregnancy Help Center partners in Dallas, Texas, instead.

“I think I need an abortion,” she blurted out as soon as she heard the line pick up.

Can I just come in and get it today?

 “My kids are in school right now and I don’t want to think about it any longer than I have to.”

The client advocate on the other end of the line began to ask a series of questions:

“How far along are you?”

“Why do you want an abortion?”

“Have you considered any alternatives to abortion?”

Katie didn’t have answers for any of these questions.

She hadn’t even taken a positive pregnancy test yet.

The client advocate then asked the question that really stuck with Katie:

“Would you like to come in and we can give you a free pregnancy test, an ultrasound, and help you process your thoughts with one of our counselors?”

Katie was stunned.


That’s what she really needed…

And she realized it the moment this true help was offered to her.

She made the appointment to come in the next day.

By the time Katie arrived for her appointment, she’d already changed her mind about the abortion!

Her client advocates helped her set up professional prenatal care, outfitted her with maternity and newborn resources, and made a plan for continued support.

Praise be to God!

Through the diverted phone call away from an abortion facility, and immediately embraced with the compassionate care and true help articulated by the pregnancy center’s client advocate, Katie was empowered to follow her natural maternal instincts – choosing life instead of death for her precious child, and being spared of a devastating abortion experience.

That’s how powerful your support of OAASYS is.

Thank you and God bless you!
