Tearful Post-abortion woman: “If only one person has asked me not to do it”

By Sarah Terzo

Pro-life activist Richard Exley told this story:

Some time ago I was speaking to a right to life rally. When I had finished, a young woman came to the front of the auditorium and asked to speak to the audience. Noting her obvious distress, I hesitated before giving her the microphone.

Tearfully she confessed that eight years earlier she had aborted her baby… The father had wanted nothing more to do with the young woman or her unborn child. In shame and desperation she has scheduled a legal and inexpensive abortion.…

Trembling, she told us that on the way to the abortion clinic she had “prayed” that someone would stop her.

“If only one person has asked me not to do it,” she sobbed, “my baby would be alive today.”

Listening to her story, I couldn’t help but wonder how many other babies have been killed simply because no one was there.
