Baby Saved From Abortion: “The Doctor Told Me It Was Like a Peanut, That’s Not a Peanut”

The aggressive words — “Is this the f***ing pro-life stuff!?” —  is how the best conversation of last week began.

An abrasive young woman was shouting those words at our newest team member Josh, he was caught a little off guard and wasn’t quite sure how to respond.  No need to worry, the girl strutted right on by and straight up to Lauren, a veteran team member and quipped: “Why you guys gotta be at a college!?”

Lauren calmly pointed out that most women who have abortions are college students.  Janie*, the young lady, responded, “I know!  I’m two months. I was gonna have an abortion. But thanks to y’all, I ain’t.”

Janie continued to share that she already had a daughter who was a year old. In fact, 4 years earlier, she’d also been pregnant, and chose to abort that baby. She swore to herself she wouldn’t abort again, but here she was, a full-time college student, with a one year old, rent, and a car payment.  It seemed like too much, enough even to consider another abortion… until she saw the images.

She made it sound like she resented us… but she was happy. Despite her tone, she was all smiles. “The doctor told me it was just like a peanut! That’s not a peanut!” she said when Lauren showed her our 8-week fetal model.

Janie left us with local resources, information about healing after abortion, and our promise to pray for her and her babies.

We see a lot of girls like Janie.  Some are angry and confrontational but we know that inside they are crying out for help and for someone to point them in the right direction.

Janie was ultimately grateful that we were at her college that day to show her what abortion is and therefore what she was thinking about doing to her baby. It changed Janie’s mind and she is one of many pregnant college students who need to see the truth.

Won’t you help Survivors be on college campuses in the weeks ahead by giving a special donation today?  To make a contribution to get us to our next college where we will meet more young women just like Janie please click here now.

While God doesn’t always show us when babies are saved as a result of our college outreaches, we know they are.  Please pray with us for Janie, and all of the other mothers that we reached in Los Angeles and Riverside, as well as the students who we will encounter this week in San Diego and Twentynine Palms.
