Generations of Life

Yesterday, a 14-year old girl and her father came into one of our centers requesting a pregnancy test and abortion information.  When she saw that the test was positive, she sobbed. Her counselor spoke with her about the development of her baby.  She was shocked that in just seven and one half weeks, how fully formed the baby was. The counselor invited her father into the room and she disclosed the test results. He also broke down and cried. She said, “Dad, I thought I wanted an abortion, but I don’t think I do anymore.” Wiping away tears he replied, “Your mother and I have never told you this, but you were an unplanned pregnancy. We were planning on aborting you. Just before our abortion procedure appointment we said, ‘We can’t do this – we LOVE this baby!’” The girl embraced her father and said, “Oh Dad, thank you for letting me live!” They held each other and cried. 

There was an ultrasound technician working at the center that day who was able to perform an ultrasound immediately. As the father and daughter saw the tiny life on the screen, it sealed their decision. Abortion was no longer an option! The gospel was presented and they both stated that they knew Jesus Christ as their Savior. What a beautiful story of Life!
