Sherri’s Story

The following story comes from Pregnancy Care Center of Rincon in Rincon, GA

My name is Sherri. I am 21 year old full-time student working my way through college. It’s nothing short of exhausting! With the constant pressure of school, my pregnancy was definitely an added burden. How would I have the time to raise a child?

Even if I did have the time necessary, I couldn’t tell my boyfriend. I know he’ll just get mad. Honestly, no one is excited about this pregnancy. My mom has never liked my boyfriend, and the one person I feel would support me is gone. My grandmother. I so wish she were still alive. She’d be the first person to support and encourage me.

Without support, I entered the Stork Bus. The nurse smiled and told me I could have an ultrasound if I wanted one. After seeing her smile, I was relieved – but still nervous.

This was really happening. The monitor lit up and I heard the heartbeat so clearly and steadily that my own heart skipped a beat. In that moment, I knew I could never hurt this little one.

It won’t be easy, but I will carry this baby.

I walked onto this Stork Bus without a support system and left with a supportive community of friends. The staff on the bus made me feel at home. Without this ultrasound, I would have felt extremely pressured to not keep this baby.

At the end of the day – this is my decision. And it’s one I can live with. Who knew the sound of a heartbeat could change your world?

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.
