A mother who already had two teenage children came to Blue Ridge Women’s Center last fall, distressed about her unexpected pregnancy. Andrea* thought this stage of her life was past; having a baby right now didn’t seem possible. She wanted an abortion, but first wanted to determine how many weeks along she was.
The counselor explained all her options – Andrea didn’t think adoption was for her, and parenting seemed out of the question. She thought an abortion was her only choice.
During her ultrasound the following week, the screen showed a healthy baby 20 weeks along. Andrea cried and told the nurse, “I guess you know I’ve changed my mind.”
This is the importance of ultrasounds - snapshots of life. Every woman should be able to see the truth
about her pregnancy before
she makes her choice.
