Woman whose mind was set on abortion, sees ultrasound, changes mind

By Sarah Terzo

Autumn Williams was planning on abortion, but changed her mind when she saw her child on the ultrasound. She tells her story:

My mind was set on abortion. Finding out I was pregnant a week before leaving for college was devastating. I was mad at my boyfriend, my parents, myself, this baby. Most of all, I was angry with God, for taking away my hard work, my freedom, college, and my reputation. I had a 5 year plan and I wasn’t going to let it get away from me that quickly….

I was sure I’d only be a couple of weeks along; it would be easy to go through with the procedure if that was the case. As I lay on the ultrasound table I was sure not to look as the technician was scanning, I just wanted it to be over, and only thing in my mind was my 5-year plan [for her future life, which would be destroyed by having the baby]. The nurse asked me if I wanted to know the gender. Before I could answer, or question what she was talking about she slowly turned the screen and she said “It’s a boy”. My eyes fixated on the baby’s profile, a boy, my son. I was six and a half months pregnant…

To this day, I thank [God] every day for finding out when I did, it saved my son’s life. I couldn’t imagine a life without him.

She later started a pro-life crisis pregnancy center.
