Pro-Choicer converts to pro-life after seeing ultrasound

By Sarah Terzo

Chris Aubert was pro-choice and the father of two aborted babies. He had willingly gone along with his girlfriends’ abortions and was strongly pro-choice. But when his wife had a sonogram of their first child, his views changed:

“When [his wife] was about eight weeks pregnant, I saw for the first time in my life in the ultrasound waiting room a fetal development chart and was stunned by what it showed.

Before I could process this information, we were called into the ultrasound room. On the screen was that supposedly unviable tissue mass moving around, right before my eyes. I couldn’t believe it, and I pointed at the screen excitedly and said out loud, “I want to meet the person who says that’s not a baby, because there is no doubt that’s a baby!”…

Instantly, I understood the evil of abortion and was flooded with shame and sorrow for having been instrumental in the deaths of two of my own little babies.

Literally only minutes earlier I had been pro-choice; now I was pro-life.”
