Sofia’s Story

On August 15, 2014, Sofia and Kory visited the abortion clinic at 40 Engle St. for a pregnancy test because Sofia had missed her period. Initially, they were happy about her pregnancy but worried about how they were going to provide for a child. Sofia knew she would have to stop working if she chose to keep her baby because she was so sick and tired all the time. She was a server at a restaurant and couldn’t imagine going to work. With only one income, they had very real concerns and fears about how to pay their rent and other bills.

As they approached the abortion clinic, they noticed a blue mobile unit across the street advertising free ultrasounds. A nurse named Rosie stopped them and asked if they’d like to receive one. Since Sofia wasn’t sure how far along she was at this point, she agreed. Kory and Sofia both loved the Stork Bus and felt safe getting the ultrasound done in its organized and clean environment. When they saw their little baby of only 7.3 weeks on the screen, Kory started to cry thinking about what would have happened had they chosen the abortion clinic that day.

Rosie played the heartbeat for the couple and they were amazed that a person so small had such a very loud heartbeat. Sofia and Kory knew at that moment that they were going to be parents and had no need to visit the abortion clinic across the street. Little Zoe was born on March 16, 2015 weighing in at only 6 lbs and 4 oz.

Today is her 1st birthday!

DEAR READER

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
