"Don't go on that RV," the pro-choice 'escort' told the young lady, "They will hold you hostage. And if you go on that RV with those pro-life people, you cannot come back here if you change your mind."
A baby's life hung in the balance. The young mother, Asha, had gone into the abortion center determined to abort, but her brave friend, Rina, got her on the phone, and despite our expectations that she would hang up on me, I was handed the phone. Unbelievably, after a few minutes of talking with her, Asha told me she was coming out. She would go on our mobile ultrasound RV and see her baby, discuss her options with us. (Names changed for privacy.)
I drew pictures of animals for Rina's three small children while Rina ran to meet Asha at the abortion center door. The two emerged. The nurse, Sherry, and I rejoiced, knowing that most of the time if we can get a mom on the RV to see her child on the ultrasound, she will choose life.
Suddenly, the 'pro-choice escort' began challenging the young woman. She told her we trap women in the RV, and won't let them off. The escort told Asha she could not leave and expect to come back. It was abortion now, or never. The conflicted woman returned to the abortion center and we were livid with the outright lies to secure the death of a baby.
This was a woman that wanted to go on the mobile ultrasound unit. She wanted to see her baby. She wanted to hear what we could offer. The so-called "pro-choice" escort told her choose abortion...or get lost. What choice was being offered this woman? One choice in the Women's Preferred Health Center: Abortion.
One couple left before the abortionist arrived. One baby saved! Sherry, the nurse, had an extended discussion with a Muslim man who saw the "pro-choice" person lie about what we do, and in the end, he wanted to know more about Jesus. Glimmers of hope.
I know the people at the abortion center lie to draw in business. It sickens me to know that they would lie to prevent a woman from letting her baby live. Lord help us.
