It was a Thursday when Minta* called the Pregnancy Decision Line (PDL). Like so many facing pregnancy decisions, Minta felt alone, desperate, and that abortion was her only option. Hesitantly, she asked for the cost of an abortion.
Every day, clients call PDL for information. Because of your support, dedicated pregnancy decision coaches are waiting to offer compassion, understanding, and life-saving information to women and men in need.
Although she felt like she needed an abortion, Minta was still upset to even be thinking about it. As a Christian, she knew abortion was wrong and refused an ultrasound for fear she wouldn’t be able to follow through with her plan to abort after seeing her child.
On the call, PDL coach offered Minta a safe environment to talk and process her feelings. She prayed God would give this mother hope in a seemingly hopeless circumstance. She then encouraged Minta to trust God, talk to her family, and take the weekend to consider her plan.
Reaching vulnerable women right when they need help is critical in this ministry to provide support and save lives. Through Care Net’s network of affiliated pregnancy centers and Pregnancy Decision Line, you reach women and men considering abortion with a message of HOPE with your generous support.
On Monday, Minta called back and she sounded completely different!
She had told her mother and her sister about her pregnancy, and they offered her the support she needed to keep the baby. She said that after she prayed with our pregnancy decision coach, she knew God would sustain her if she trusted in Him.
PDL coaches know that they do not have the power to help women choose life. But women connected to God’s love and His community will find themselves empowered to face difficult circumstances like an unexpected—or unexpectedly complicated—pregnancy.
In the next 30 days, we need to raise $395,000 to keep saving unborn lives. Women like Minta need your help… Need a place to turn when they feel they have exhausted all of their options. Will you help us save unborn babies… like Minta’s?
Will you partner with us to make sure we can keep reaching vulnerable women? Thank you for your generous tax-deductible support and your ongoing prayers for this ministry!
