Susi’s Story

My name is Susi and I’m 25 years old. I have a daughter and son from a previous marriage, and remarried a few months ago. Recently I found out I was pregnant – this was definitely a surprise.The shock didn’t last but the fear did. My past isn’t an easy one and I suffered with postpartum depression with both of my children. Remembering the depths of hopelessness made me afraid of being pregnant again.

How would I cope with a new child if I experienced this again? My marriage was new. We were supposed to be in the honeymoon stage. How would my husband react? We were already struggling to make it financially. With these fears swirling in my mind, I stirred my coffee and told my children it was time to go. We headed out the door. I’m not sure they fully understood where we were going.

As I walked towards the mobile medical unit, my children commented on the beautiful colors. They were enchanted with the design but what really captivated us was the sonogram. Seeing the heartbeat on the screen made all the difference in the world. My kids were ecstatic to hear the heartbeat so clearly. In their mind, they were going to have another sibling and their excitement was contagious. I began to realize that this child wasn’t something to fear but a special blessing.

Knowing I would have the love and support of the Pregnancy Care Center of Rincon made all the difference.

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.
