Father calls pregnancy center in tears, but can’t stop girlfriend’s abortion

Two women who worked in pregnancy centers told the following story:

“Legally, a husband can’t prevent his wife from having an abortion if she chooses to have one. I still remember one heartrending telephone call from a man who actually lived in another state. He found our center’s number on the Internet. He pleaded with me, at times during the conversation, even breaking down sobbing, wanting to know what he could do to stop his girlfriend from having an abortion.

Sadly, I had to inform him that there were no legal methods he could take, but I encouraged him to patiently talk with her and try to understand why she wanted an abortion. I provided him with numbers of pregnancy resource centers located near where he lived that maybe they could go to for help. I prayed with him that God would work in their lives to help them be able to choose life for their baby. I never knew the outcome…”
