Women Sharing Their Stories
Pregnancy Help Centers across the country have shared stories of girls on the brink of abortion who are coming to their centers after seeing a Vitae ad. Because of Vitae ads, lives are being saved! These are true stories of women who chose life for their babies.
Los Angeles Another clinic had confirmed her pregnancy, and when she came to us she was definitely abortion-minded. She was 19 years old, single and had no relationship with the baby’s father. In fact, she didn’t want to have his baby, and her family supported that decision. She saw the Vitae ad in El Clasificado which led her to our center. After talking with one of our counselors and choosing to watch the “Dura Realidad” video, she was deeply touched and wanted to learn more about abortion risks and procedures. Once she knew all her options, she chose life for her unborn baby!

New York While riding in the New York subway system, a woman saw one of Vitae’s Call-for-Help posters. Not yet 35 years old, she had already had 14 abortions and worried she may be pregnant again. After calling one of the helpline phone numbers listed on that ad, she came to the Pregnancy Resource Center in Brooklyn where her pregnancy was confirmed. Once again her intent was to abort her child, but a wonderful thing happened. While looking at the ultrasound image of her little boy, she saw him move his hands. In fact, the baby actually raised his hand, causing the woman to begin crying. She has now decided to keep her baby, and the director of the pregnancy center in Brooklyn will help her find the assistance she needs to persevere in her good intentions.

Boston After taking a home pregnancy test that tested positive, all I wanted was a way out! I was ready to leave my husband who I had known since our teen years. I started searching the Internet for a center I used to visit as a teenager, but I could not remember the name. For some reason an ad (placed by Vitae) kept popping up for A Woman’s Concern, therefore I thought this had to be the place I used to go to. I told the counselor that I wanted to know how far along I was so that I could terminate the pregnancy if I was less than four weeks along. During our conversation, I began to realize that I needed to start being honest – with myself and with my counselor. My eyes and my hurt began to clear as we continued to talk, but I still had to know how far along in the pregnancy I was. So to the ultrasound room we went. My heart was heavy as we heard the heartbeat. I was just about six weeks along, and it was at this point that the sonographer was able to calculate an approximate due date, which happened to fall on my wedding anniversary. For our Heavenly Father to be speaking so loudly to me… (Eight months later, Jennifer and her husband had the joy of welcoming their third child, a baby girl, into the world.)
