Pregnant And In College 

How E’Nisha Found Resources and Graduated College While Pregnant 

By Katie Doryland

E’Nisha was excited about her upcoming college graduation. She only had a few months left of school in the mountain town of Franklin, North Carolina. But her plans changed when she found out that she was pregnant.  

At 23 years old, E’Nisha was now more worried about what her family back home would think about her being pregnant, especially so close to graduation. These concerns led her to thinking that abortion was her only solution.  

E’Nisha arrived at Smoky Mountain Pregnancy Care Center seeking help and resources.  

She sat down with the registered nurse, Pam, to talk through her options. When E’Nisha thought about having an abortion, she started cry. 

She was also worried about letting her family know, so Pam prayed with herThen she asked E’Nisha if she’d like to get an ultrasound.  

“When [my boyfriend and I] saw the baby’s heart beating, that made us change our minds about having the abortion,” E’Nisha said.

A few weeks later, she and her boyfriend returned to the pregnancy center. They were able to get another ultrasound to determine the gender of their babyThey were given gifts and a baby blanket for their new baby girl and left the center with help and resources.  

Because of the support of the PRC, E’Nisha felt ready to tell her family the news.  

When E’Nisha told her family the news, much to her surprise, they were excited for her. She was able to work and graduate school.  

“I was so proud of myself and my family was too,” E’Nisha said. 

E’Nisha worked in the evenings to help support her family and graduated college a few months later. Since graduating, E’Nisha and her boyfriend have gotten married. They moved in together near the Army base where her husband is currently stationed.

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.
