“I went to the sonogram appointment at Burleson Pregnancy Aid Center even though I had already been to Planned Parenthood and thought that abortion was right for me. But when I looked at the sonogram screen, I knew that I had been lied to. What I saw on the screen was not a ‘piece of tissue’ like Planned Parenthood had told me. The tiny flicker of light, a heartbeat, was my child. I was instantly in love.
I would have been lost without the guidance of the Pregnancy Aid Center. Through their programs I learned how to care for my infant daughter. I would not be the person I am today if it hadn’t been for the caring people of the Burleson Pregnancy Aid Center and the experiences I’ve had there. Without them, my daughter would not be alive and I cannot imagine my life without her.”
From the Priests for Life website, which has graphic pictures of aborted babies:
I found out I was pregnant with my second child…I lost my first to miscarriage…well I wasn’t prepared at all for being a single parent…so I was 8 weeks pregnant looking up things on abortion….and I came across this site…and saw what would happen to the child inside me….because of your site, the pictures the information and everything..On September 5th I had a beautiful little girl…healthy as could be! Thank you for making this site and putting the pictures up….I will be spreading the word about what good you do for the aborted babies…. Thank you so much again! — Amanda and Graclyn
A woman at the Priests For Life website told this story:
“Our son has on his cell phone, pictures of aborted babies. Around a week or two ago he shared with us something that happened at his place of employment. He was around some girls more or less his age and they were talking about the woman’s right to choose. One was a very strong believer in the woman’s right to choose. He got into a little debate. Margaret Sanger’s name came in. Finally his cell phone was popped open with the pictures of the aborted babies, thanks to God, and he was used to share what pro-choice and abortion really is. One of the girls there was shocked, and she asked for the pictures to be sent to her cell phone. …. Anyway, another day at his job, the shocked girl told my son that she was pregnant and is keeping her baby. Thank and really thanks to God!”
Former abortion clinic director Abby Johnson wrote the following facebook post on 4/6/2016:
UPDATE!! The mother who was scheduled to abort her 35 week old twins has made a choice for life! She is back on schedule to deliver and place her twins with an adoptive family. Thank you all so much for your prayers. Please keep this whole situation in your continued prayers as this expectant mother is dealing with a lot of pressure in the final weeks of her pregnancy.
Also, please pray for the conversion of Dr. Curtis Boyd, the abortion doctor who was scheduled to take the lives of these babies today.
“We average two or three turnarounds per day. We average about 800 saves a year just at the mobile facility.”
Pro-Lifer Chris Slattery, president of EMC Frontline.
EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers has a van equipped with ultrasound machines. Volunteers park in front of abortion clinics and attempt to reach abortion minded women.
Jaboy Rivera is one such success story. She said that she owes her child’s life to Slattery’s mobile-ultrasound unit. Scheduled for an abortion, she had a pregnancy test and ultrasound on the bus and learned that she was 15 weeks pregnant. Her boyfriend wanted her to have an abortion.
“If I wouldn’t have seen the sonogram and my baby moving, I would have done it. I thank those with the bus for not letting me do it. I give thanks that I didn’t do it.”
Tim Drake “Ultrasound Hits the Road” National Catholic Register August 28-September 10, 2011
As of this articlewritten in 2012,South Dakota had prolife laws including parental notification, bans on public funding of abortion, and pro-life counseling as well as the longest waiting period (three days) of any state.
“Given the legal environment in South Dakota, it’s not surprising that only 6% of South Dakota women who became pregnant in 2008 aborted – three times lower than the national abortion rate of 19%. That’s just 850 abortions in 2008, representing less than .1% of abortions nationally.”
Daniel Allot “Does Roe Still Matter?” American Spectator, January 25, 2012
From a crisis pregnancy center worker in Atlanta, Georgia:
“… Our volunteer talked to both girls but felt we would lose their babies to abortion. As she was leaving, she remembered the “precious feet” on her collar and gave them to one of the girls. She told her “these are the exact size of a 10 week-old baby’s feet” (the precise point of her pregnancy). Well, our volunteer came back and we all prayed, but the precious feet had done their work – we were able to save not one but two babies! Our thanks for making the precious feet available to us.”

Pro-choice activist describing what pro-lifers did when there was an ordinance to legalize abortion in North Dakota (before Roe V Wade):
“They distributed this color brochure with a picture of the [14-week aborted] fetus door-to-door in Fargo and the rest of the state on Sunday and Monday, so we couldn’t respond since the vote was on Tuesday. I remember I went and spoke the night before the election when the darn pamphlet landed on people’s doorsteps. I got this absolutely tremulous woman who came to talk to me. You could see that her faith was really shaken… Well the referendum was defeated very badly [78% in the state, 64% in Fargo] and it was a real setback.”

“Last year, we performed 565 ultrasound exams. Of our pregnant clients who have an ultrasound, 70% decide to carry their babies. Of our pregnant clients who do not have an ultrasound, 29% decide to carry. With outcomes like these, I can’t imagine not having ultrasound at First Choice.”
