Woman risks divorce by deciding not to abort baby
Many women came to the LifeHouse pregnancy help center
for free pregnancy tests last week, but most of them
were not pregnant.
This provided many opportunities to
encourage young women toward abstinence until
marriage. Abortionist Kenneth Wright returned to the
FPA abortion chamber for two days of childkilling.
Here is the story of one of the women who escaped the
knife of this notorious abortionist:
When "Miriam" found out that she was pregnant
with her third child, she immediately knew that her
husband was probably not the baby's father. Hoping
to save her troubled marriage, she made an appointment
with the FPA abortion chamber.
Miriam agonized over her abortion decision. She has
been attending a local Pentecostal church, and she knew that
it would be a sin to abort her child. The night before her
appointment, she kept thinking "maybe I shouldn't do this."
But after a restless night, she decided to keep her
appointment anyway, unable to think of any other way to
get out of her predicament. As Miriam approached the
abortion mill, Debbie* encouraged her to reconsider her
Soon Terri* joined in the conversation, giving Miriam a
"Hope for the Future" Bible and a teddy bear, along with
some literature about the risks of abortion. After talking to
Debbie and Terri for about 20 minutes, Miriam said she
needed to go in.
"My friend is in there for an abortion, and I need to try
to talk her out of it," she said. Terri and Debbie prayed that
God would protect Miriam and her baby, and then she went
Miriam's friend had already been taken back for the
abortion, so Miriam came back outside to talk with the
Christians on the sidewalk. "I need a ride home," she said.
Terri brought Miriam over to the LifeHouse to give her
a gift box for her baby, and to talk more about her situation.
After the discussion, Miriam said that she will now keep the
baby, even though she realizes that her husband will
probably divorce her.

"Then they also brought infants to Him that He
might touch them; but when the disciples saw it, they
rebuked them. But Jesus called them to Him and
said, 'Let the little children come to Me, and do not
forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God.
Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the
kingdom of God as a little child will by no means
Pray that God will help you to see the abortion
holocaust through the eyes of little children.
Dear God, please help us to keep our eyes on
You, and don't let us lose sight of the babies who are
about to be killed today.
Comfort "Miriam" (see report above) and bring
healing to her marriage. Give her husband mercy.
Convict FPA guard Teresa Avlos of her sin, and
help her to repent and turn to you for forgiveness.
May she find a new job she can feel good about.
