Teenager chooses life after seeing the ultrasound

Shawn Carney of 40 Days for Life told the following story:

“Volunteers outside Planned Parenthood in Roanoke pleaded with a teenager who was going in for an abortion. “Please don’t go in there,” they told her. The only “option” they offer would end the life of her child.

She laughed. “I know,” the young woman said. “That’s what I’m going to do.”

“It brought tears to my eyes,” said Shirley, the local 40 Days for Life coordinator in Roanoke. “I sat down and cried for her seeming callousness.”

But less than an hour later, tears turned to joy. The teen walked out of Planned Parenthood and spoke to the people praying outside.

“I can’t do it,” she said. “I saw the ultrasound.”

She explained she was 6 weeks pregnant, her boyfriend didn’t want the baby – and she’s afraid of what her parents will say. The volunteers prayed with her – and helped set up an appointment for her at the pregnancy care center in her hometown.”
