It is often family members who relentlessly pressure their younger relatives to have abortions. One young woman came to Houston’s giant Planned Parenthood abortion facility with her aunt because her mother was totally against the abortion.
A sidewalk counselor warned the young woman that abortion can cause lasting damage to a woman’s body. The aunt responded that abortion had not hurt her.
At this point, the volunteer turned to the aunt … and talked about post-abortion healing programs in which mothers are encouraged to name their aborted babies.
The aunt responded: “All ten of them?”
The two women eventually walked away. But a week later, the younger woman spoke to the counselors at the mobile pregnancy help center parked outside Planned Parenthood.
She did not want an abortion … but she did want their help.
“Please keep all of the pregnant mothers and their unborn babies in your prayers,” said the Houston team member, “especially those who are considering abortion.”
