When LifeNews featured the story of Baby Noah, who died from a spontaneous miscarriage on February 20th, 2014, the image went viral as pro-life people shared it with friends and family. Noah’s mother, Lara Price, named him Noah because it means “rest” and “peace.”

Now, Noah’s picture (right) has been able to touch someone in a different way. This time, the picture was a reminder about the gift of life and was a way to celebrate how one wonan made the courageous decision to change her mind about an abortion — while on the operating table.

Lara shared this story with us via Facebook about how the picture of her son was a centerpiece of joy and happiness.

So I went to Cato’s with my friend tonight. While we were checking out she was telling about a man who was arrested for protesting in front of a abortion clinic. The associate who was checking us out heard what we were talking about and this started a conversation with her and another associate about abortion and partial birth abortion.

One of the associates began to cry as we talked about how I lost him at 12 weeks and this is the stage when most abortions are done. The other associate then told me how when she was expecting her second child she went in to have an abortion and when she was laying on the table a nurse touched her stomach and she felt pain stab through her.

She then said she didn’t want to have one and got up off the table to leave. The staff told her that she couldn’t leave. She was still determined. They then told her she wouldn’t get her $300 refunded to her. She still left.

Now she can not imagine life without her son. To look at him and see who he is and to think that she had plans to murder him. This is why I carry Noah’s picture in my purse. I pray that it gave these two lovely ladies hope and a deeper understanding. I will be going back to Cato’s.
