Katiya’s Story

“Katiya’s” Story: From Hopeless to Hopeful

Thirteen weeks into an unexpected pregnancy, “Katiya” was seeking an abortion. Married at 22 years old, she had no desire to start a family quite yet. She had big plans for her life, and this pregnancy wasn’t one of them at the moment.   Jobs, new family dynamics, and now an unexpected pregnancy. How is a young couple supposed to juggle all these things as they’re starting out? Katiya had no healthcare insurance and desperately needed financial help if she was to provide for this child. It wasn’t that she didn’t want her baby, she just couldn’t see around the mountains that tried to engulf her. It just didn't feel possible.   There had to be another way, a path out of her financial fragility that had become the driving factor behind her decision to abort her child.   Katiya began to look online for an abortion, and that’s when she discovered Human Coalition. Anxious about what the conversation would entail, she picked up the phone and dialed. It wasn’t until the nurse began to explain the abortion procedure more in-depth that Katiya gained a fresh perspective. She took it upon herself to research abortion and all it demanded.   And that’s when she realized that she couldn’t go through with it. She began to see the truth and understand abortion for what it really was: an intense and vulnerable procedure with lasting effects. But not only that, she came to terms with the fact that she would be taking the life of her own child. She learned how her baby could feel pain and had a heartbeat, arms, legs, a brain, and reflexive movements inside the womb. Katiya came to the conclusion that what she previously thought of as just a fetus is human and worthy of life. After the phone conversation with a nurse, an in-person appointment was scheduled. During her sonogram, Katiya was able to see her baby for the first time. As she listened to her baby’s heartbeat, excitement began to rise inside of her and a future as a mother felt possible. With the support of her husband, her mom, her nurse, her Continuum of Care social worker, and her recent studies on abortion, Katiya’s outlook had completely reversed. Once she was made aware of the support and resources available to her, the decision to choose life was easy. Because of your support, Katiya was able to overcome her obstacles one by one, making abortion completely unnecessary for Katiya. The Continuum of Care program was able to provide for Katiya in ways she couldn’t provide for herself. They helped with material assistance for the baby, connected her with the appropriate financial assistance and maternity leave through her workplace, and resources to receive health insurance. The nurse encouraged Katiya to just take one day at a time and reminded her that she had plenty of time to prepare before the arrival of her baby. Katiya received the support she needed to continue the pregnancy and confidently become a mom. She gave birth to a healthy baby girl. When her baby was 8 weeks old, Katiya came to visit and introduced the Human Coalition pregnancy center staff to her newborn baby! The team was even able to bless her with some gifts to help welcome the arrival of her daughter. To this day, Katiya continues to express gratitude for all the support, love, and compassion she received.
“Thank you for all the help and everything you guys have sent. I definitely appreciate it, and you guys are now like my second family. Everything in my life was so crazy. I was going through so much, then she was born, and everything was alright!”
Many women feel the way Katiya felt: the baby would only be a hindrance to life's plans. But in truth, her baby was an additional blessing and didn’t take away anything from Katiya’s life. Your lifesaving support truly changes the course of the next generation. Not only can Katiya continue to pursue her dreams, but her baby girl now has the opportunity to do the same! Thank you for all you do to reach the next mom seeking an abortion, like Katiya was before she was reached with help and hope. Your support truly empowered her to choose life and saved her daughter from abortion.

Kacee’s Story

“Kacee” came into our Human Coalition Raleigh women’s care clinic to confirm her pregnancy after taking a home pregnancy test. Kacee was in college and determined to finish with a degree. So a baby did not fit in with her dreams for her future career, and she believed abortion was the answer. During her initial visit, Kacee spoke with a our staff about the long-term implications of an abortion, and the possibility of pursuing a career while parenting a child. During the ultrasound, the pregnancy was confirmed and Kacee saw her baby’s tiny heartbeat. Kacee left our clinic still abortion-determined, but she agreed to come in for another ultrasound. During the next scan, Kacee saw her baby moving, waving, and smiling; and she was happy to share with our staff that she’d courageously chosen life for her baby.

Meet “Riley”

As the daughter of a pastor, Jennifer was convinced she had to hide the truth of her unplanned pregnancy. So abortion seemed like the only reasonable solution. Battling whether or not she would discuss this decision with her friends or family, Jennifer aimlessly drove around town — or so she thought. Jennifer came upon our Dallas/Ft. Worth Women’s Mobile Unit and went inside. Instead of the stereotypical clinical feel, she found the warmth and compassion she needed. The women she encountered served as the turning point in her pregnancy and one of the biggest influences in her decision to parent. Jennifer’s daughter Riley is now approaching her third birthday! And on April 20, 2017 (the same day we celebrated our annual banquet!), Jennifer married the man who vowed his devotion to her and Riley for who they are — no matter what they’d been through. Every day, Jennifer looks at Riley and says, “I’m so glad you’re here; you were worth it all.”

Meet Baby “Faith”

“Tiffany” came to our Dallas/Ft. Worth women’s care clinic seeking an abortion. She was 25 years old and already had three daughters. Thanks to the support Tiffany received from our clinic’s Care Coordinator and Tiffany’s mother, she made the courageous decision to parent her baby. Tiffany’s beautiful baby girl was born in February. Tiffany named her newest daughter “Faith” as a reminder that you only need a little bit of faith in the Lord, and He will provide for your needs.


Determined to make the right decision, “Tasia” chose life for Human Coalition Baby #5,376 — “Candice”!

After a night of poor choices, Tasia knew something was off. Then a home pregnancy test confirmed her greatest fear: she was pregnant. Already a single mother to her daughter, she now felt backed against a wall.

Tasia went online and frantically searched for abortion help. Instead, she found Human Coalition.

We immediately connected her with one of our life-affirming clinics, and she scheduled an appointment on her first available day off. We shared that abortion services are not provided at our facility, and Tasia still followed through with her appointment. Together, we sifted through her greatest fears, what brought her to this point, and the steps she could take moving forward.

Once Tasia knew we’d be with her for the long haul, she faced her fears and stepped up to the plate for her new daughter, Candice!


Abortion was no longer an easy fix for “Justine” and baby “Aaron,” Human Coalition Baby #5,317! Stuck in an abusive relationship, a positive pregnancy test only brought more anxiety into Justine’s life. She went online to learn more about nearby abortion services, as it had been eight years since her last abortion. Her search led her to Human Coalition, and she was connected with a life-affirming pregnancy clinic in her area. With financial pressures looming, Justine felt her options were limited. But as Justine shared with our clinic’s staff about her first abortion experience, she admitted that her guilt still lingered. Rather than take the “easy way out,” Justine decided now was the time for her to rise up to the challenge of motherhood for the sake of her son, Aaron.

Meet Danny

“Darcy” decided LIFE made the most sense for her son “Danny,” Human Coalition baby #5,214. She was the mother of one and a full-time student, and she’d already had two miscarriages. So Darcy was shocked when she discovered she was pregnant again. She wanted to enjoy the child she already had, and she felt she wasn’t prepared to mother another one. Seeking abortion services, Darcy went online and performed a quick search.Instead, she connected with HC and arranged an appointment at a life-affirming clinic. At the clinic Darcy learned what exactly an abortion entails, and she wondered how she — and many others — could ever consider it an option for their own child. Darcy opted for LIFE for her sweet baby boy, Danny.


Jenna is now set on life for baby #5,147, Geoffrey. "Jenna" was late to start her period, and the pains she was experiencing were far too intense for her normal cycle. Jenna went to the ER and found out she was pregnant. After doing a quick search for "pregnancy help" online, she decided to visit a local life-affirming center she found through Human Coalition. At the time of her appointment, Jenna was far enough along to show the growth of the baby boy she'd been carrying for 9 weeks. After seeing his sweet profile via sonogram, Jenna knew she was looking at her son — her future. Leaving her fears behind, Jenna welcomed this new season into her world.


“Tiffany” chose “Leon,” HC baby #5,042 — for LIFE! After discovering she was pregnant, Tiffany immediately went online to research her options. Feeling alone and scared, she was tempted by the voices in her head that said she should abort. Instead, Tiffany picked up the phone and dialed the number that offered to help. She heard a calming voice on the other end of the line and made an appointment with one of HC’s clinics. But during her appointment, fear once again consumed her. Tiffany argued that abortion was her only hope for normalcy, and she asked for an abortion referral. The staff politely reminded her that abortion services are not referred or provided, as she’d been told before she made her appointment. The nurses remembered how it felt to be in her shoes, and they helped Tiffany identify the source of her frustration and sort through her feelings. After receiving continued counseling and encouragement from the HC clinic, Tiffany faced her fears and took a stand for baby Leon’s life!


Patience and time to think led "Antoinette" to choose life for baby "Ray", #4,978! At the sight of a positive pregnancy test, Antoinette went online to find a neighboring abortion clinic. Her online search provided other options like a phone call to visit with one of HC's life-affirming clinics. Antoinette picked up the phone to schedule her first appointment — a call that would eventually save her son's life. While at the clinic, Antoinette shared that with two kids back to back, she wanted to break the cycle of unplanned motherhood. She didn't want to progress "too far" in the pregnancy for her comfort to abort, so she wanted to act now. The staff patiently addressed each of her concerns and walked her through her decision making process. It wasn't until she sorted through her thoughts aloud with a new friend that she was able to see she knew the best option all along — she chose LIFE for baby boy, Ray!


"Morgan" chose LIFE over her circumstance for baby #4,886, "Avery." Tempted to avoid all responsibility for her pregnancy, Morgan confessed to her mom she was pregnant. The two went online to research her options as Morgan's mother knew her daughter was unaware of all abortion entailed. Together they picked up the phone and called Human Coalition and made an appointment with one of our clinics. During her appointment, Morgan learned the in's and out's of the abortion procedure, and shared all she was up against with this pregnancy. To ensure she knew all that was going on, the staff at the clinic introduced her to her daughter via ultrasound. Morgan took one look at Avery and knew that the world could be against her, but she would still choose LIFE.


“Sarah” seriously considered getting an abortion, but ultimately she decided that LIFE was the best choice for her son, “Clayton” — Human Coalition Baby #4,742! When facing her first unplanned pregnancy, Sarah turned to her mom for advice. She said she’d be supportive of Sarah no matter what decision she made. Sarah wondered if her child would be better off if she aborted him rather than bringing him into the world without a father and with a financially unstable mother. Rather than decide too quickly, Sarah went online to research her options and found Human Coalition. She immediately called the number and made an appointment at a nearby life-affirming pregnancy center. During her appointment, Sarah shared with one of the center’s compassionate caregivers that she’d already met with her gynecologist and was seriously considering an abortion. But, she wanted to discuss all of her options first. After meeting with the center’s staff on several occasions, Sarah decided she didn’t need everyone to agree with her decision to do what was right — and she chose LIFE!


“Kendra” chose life for “Lavon,” Human Coalition Baby #4,836, but not without a personal struggle. Tempted to take the “easy” way out, Kendra searched online for abortion information. Soon, she was connected with Human Coalition. After a quick phone conversation with a member of our staff, Kendra made an appointment with one of HC’s women’s care clinics. She shared that she’d considered keeping the baby but was now determined to abort. Now was not a good time to have a baby — she felt ill prepared in every way. But our staff didn’t give up hope. During her first and subsequent visits to the clinic, the staff poured love into Kendra, reassuring her that she was not only capable of being a mom, but she’d been chosen for her son Lavon. Eventually, Kendra realized they were right — now was her time, and Lavon was her son!


Peace of mind led “Lavon” to choose life for her baby boy, “Xavier” — Human Coalition Baby #4,722! With shaky hands, Lavon held the positive pregnancy test as she searched online for hope. Rather than respond to the first abortion-driven ad that popped up, Lavon discovered Human Coalition and dialed the number on the screen. Through her tears, Lavon shared her story of desperation with the contact center agent on the other end of the line — her baby's father was an addict, she was already a single mother of a teenage boy, and she'd suffered through an ectopic pregnancy. Could she do it all again? Before doing anything else, the HC contact center agent offered to pray with Lavon to help calm her nerves, and Lavon eagerly agreed. After that, she scheduled an appointment for Lavon at one of HC's life-affirming pregnancy centers. During her appointment, Lavon decided to let go of her fears and seek the help that was available to her through the pregnancy center. Sometimes all a mother needs is a reminder that she’s not alone — and baby Xavier is living proof of that!


“Claire” chose to brave motherhood for her son “Dalton” — Human Coalition Baby #4,057! Staring at the positive pregnancy test, Claire was too scared to tell a soul, let alone call the phone number she found online while searching for abortion-related information. Instead, Claire joined an online chat with the Human Coalition team through our website. She was promptly connected to a neighborhood life-affirming clinic and scheduled an appointment. During her visit, Claire shared that being a parent — and all that it would entail — seemed overwhelming, but nothing compared to aborting her baby. The team assured her that not only was she capable, but she had a support team at the clinic — a team willing to help her throughout her decision-making process, and to provide the supplies and parenting classes she’d need, as well as any ongoing support. Claire was stunned to learn she wasn’t alone, and she decided that with the clinic’s help, motherhood was her best option!


After discovering she was pregnant, “Cynthia” kept thinking of her firstborn, “Anna.” What would Anna think if she knew Mommy was pregnant? Cynthia wondered if she was capable of raising two children. Cynthia went online to learn if abortion was her best option. There she encountered Human Coalition and was put in contact with a nearby life-affirming clinic. During her appointment the staff patiently sat with Cynthia, sifted through all of her emotions and fears, and pointed her toward life-affirming truth and confidence. Although Cynthia went to her appointment determined to have an abortion, she left with a renewed sense of hope in her ability to be a mother of two. Cynthia knew LIFE was the right choice for her, and HC baby #3,709 — “Abel” — was born!


The phone call “Kendall” made on behalf of her sister “Jess” helped save HC Baby #3,501 — “Edgar”! Jess took the dreaded home pregnancy test and faced reality with sister Kendall by her side. Feeling scared and unready for parenthood, Jess wanted to abort her baby. Kendall went online and found one of Human Coalition’s Women’s Care Clinics in her area. During her first visit, she shared her deepest fears. She also learned the truth about abortion, and she couldn’t believe she’d once considered it her “best” option. Jess chose life for baby Edgar, thanks to the love and support of her sister Kendall!


"Claire" was 15. How could she embrace motherhood for HC baby #3,475, "Ashton"? Choosing "life" was never a thought Claire believed she'd battle at the age of 15, until she found herself hopeless and breaking the news of an unplanned pregnancy to her mom. Together, they went online with the hopes of finding a way to handle her situation. There, they discovered Human Coalition, were put in contact with a life-affirming clinic, and scheduled an appointment. During their time at the clinic, Claire and her mother confirmed the pregnancy and watched as two-month-old preborn Ashton appeared on the ultrasound monitor. After one look, both Claire and her mom knew they couldn’t choose abortion. With the support of loved ones, Claire is embracing motherhood for Ashton!


After receiving compassionate care at a life-affirming pregnancy center, “Alice” chose LIFE for baby #3,385 — “Hudson.” Pregnant and alone in a new state, Alice felt like she had nowhere to turn. So she searched online for options. She had no idea what she’d choose to do in the end; but through her connection with Human Coalition, she understood that she could visit a nearby life-affirming pregnancy center that didn’t offer abortions. She still made an appointment. During her appointment, Alice realized that several of the female caregivers at the center had once been in her shoes and chose to abort their children. Years later, their decision still burdened them so heavily that they’d committed their lives to helping save other mothers from making the same mistake. After being welcomed by the staff, seeing a sonogram of “Hudson” for the first time, and learning about all of her options, Alice realized there was no other choice for her but LIFE! We are so grateful for the hard work of all the staff at our 30 participating Women’s Care Clinics, and for Alice’s decision to choose LIFE for her son.

3360 & #3361

“James” made the call that eventually saved the lives of Human Coalition babies #3,360 and #3,361, “Lory” and “Rita”! When James learned that “Megan” was pregnant, he went online to help her look for an answer. After finding HC’s phone number, he picked up the phone and was directed to make an appointment at a nearby life-affirming pregnancy center. During Megan’s appointment, she received a sonogram and unthinkable news...she was having twins. How could she afford to care for one baby, let alone two? She wasn’t married, her work situation wasn’t stable — there had to be another option. The nurse was more than prepared to answer all of Megan’s questions, and Megan felt certain she had made the right choice...LIFE. The staff at both the pregnancy center and the HC office were thrilled to welcome another set of twins into the world!


“Cynthia” had never imagined herself as a struggling mother of two with another one on the way. Yet there she was at age 34, feeling like she had nowhere to turn for answers but the Internet. Fortunately, her search for abortion information connected her to Human Coalition. When she made the call, HC put her in touch with a team of trained women at a life-affirming pregnancy center not far from Cynthia. During her appointment, she hashed out every fear that was leading her to abort. After spending hours with the staff, Cynthia realized she had successfully mothered her first two children, and she refused to shy away from the arrival of HC baby #3,302, “Samuel”!


“Claire” chose motherhood for sweet Human Coalition baby #3,198, “Raven.” Claire was recovering from a painful miscarriage when she discovered she was pregnant. Overcome with emotion, she looked online for abortion options. Her search connected her with Human Coalition who then paired her with a nearby life-affirming clinic. Although she was considering an abortion, Claire welcomed all of the information offered to her. It was too early in the pregnancy for her to receive an ultrasound, but she listened as all of her options were explained. And she welcomed the encouragement she received from the staff. After much personal debate, Claire decided to choose motherhood and carry baby Raven to term!


“Tiffany” fought her fears and decided to welcome the life of Human Coalition baby #3,159, “Blakely”! After getting conflicting results with multiple pregnancy tests, Tiffany decided she needed help. Her online search for help paired her with HC, which made her an appointment at a local life-affirming clinic. Tiffany shared that she was nearing surgery to prevent future pregnancies. She had always been anti-abortion...until now. With a 7-month-old at home and plans for the surgery, she felt she had no choice. Tiffany made a separate appointment with an abortionist, but she simply couldn’t follow through. Under no circumstances would she justify the killing of her preborn daughter, Blakely!


“Kimber” decided not to repeat her past mistakes, so she chose life for baby “Jenna.” No stranger to abortion, Kimber’s first thought was to abort when she discovered she was pregnant again. This time, however, Kimber started her search online and found Human Coalition instead of an abortion clinic. HC set an appointment for Kimber to visit a nearby life-affirming center. There, Kimber shared her fears — her financial situation was leading her to consider abortion, the baby’s father didn’t think they could provide for a baby, and her prior abortion went terribly. After meeting with the staff, Kimber felt heard and had a support team to address her concerns. She thought for a long time and decided that LIFE was the only option she was willing to choose for Human Coalition baby #3123, Jenna!


Scared about how her strict parents might respond to her positive pregnancy test, Jessica opened her computer and went online to research abortion information. Her search connected her with Human Coalition, and she made an appointment at a life-affirming clinic. During the appointment, Jessica's pregnancy was confirmed and the staff encouraged her to tell her parents the truth. She agreed, and to her surprise she received nothing but support and encouragement for LIFE! Jessica is about to walk the stage as a high school graduate. And with her parents’ support, she has enrolled in parenting classes. She’ll attend a local university in the fall and formally assume her title as “Mom” to HC baby #3108, Elise!


“Anthony” originally searched online for abortion info, but LIFE won out for “Elise”! Terrified of his girlfriend’s positive pregnancy test, Anthony went online to look for abortion info. His girlfriend “Cheri” was in college, and she was convinced this pregnancy would put an end to her education. Cheri spoke with Human Coalition and made an appointment at a nearby life-affirming pregnancy clinic. During her appointment, she shared all of her fears and listened carefully as she learned what an abortion entailed. When Cheri decided to choose Life, Anthony chose to stand with her and support her decision! Now HC baby #3050, Elise, will be welcomed into the world in 2015 and adopted by a loving family member!


"Danielle" and "Martin" chose Life for their son "Colton”! Feeling dizzy and overcome with emotions, Danielle took the test that stopped her in her tracks — she was pregnant. Rather than confide in Martin, she went online to research her options. And Human Coalition connected her with a nearby life-affirming pregnancy clinic. With a confirmed pregnancy and an uneasy stomach, Danielle listened carefully as the clinic staff discussed every option available to her. Rather than choose the "easy way out," Danielle asked Martin to return with her to the clinic. After receiving further counsel, two ultrasounds, and a referral to a doctor in the area, Danielle and Martin chose LIFE for HC baby #3,033!


“Carolyn” eventually chose LIFE for “Caleb” — but she struggled to make that decision alone. Carolyn knew that if her boyfriend found out she was pregnant, his answer would be quick: abort. Terrified of his response, Carolyn went online looking for answers. Her search led her to Human Coalition who connected her with a nearby life-affirming clinic. After seeing her son, Caleb, for the first time through an ultrasound, Carolyn asked for prayer to make the right decision. Carolyn was taken aback by the development of her son, yet plagued by financial worry. Rather than give in to her fears, Carolyn decided that HC baby #3,012, Caleb, deserved his chance at LIFE! We’re grateful for Carolyn’s courageous decision!


“Erika” was determined to terminate her pregnancy, but “Jessica” stepped in to help. After discovering she was pregnant, Erika went online to look for abortion-related information. Instead, a member of the Human Coalition team guided her to a nearby life-affirming pregnancy clinic. Upon entering the clinic, Erika met Jessica and shared her life story with her. She then listened to Jessica’s stories about other mothers who’d walked this same road, yet thrived after choosing Life. Erika agreed to wait and think through her options. Jessica patiently followed up with Erika. And during one of their phone conversations, Erika shared that she was choosing Life for HC baby #3,004 — “Molly”! Congrats, Erika, on your brave decision for LIFE!


“Melanie” didn’t believe in abortion… until she faced an unplanned pregnancy. Before talking with anyone, Melanie went online to find a way to end her pregnancy. There, she connected with Human Coalition and made an appointment at a life-affirming pregnancy center. The center’s staff comforted Melanie and reminded her she was not alone — that there were better options available for her and her baby. After receiving weeks of continuous support and encouragement from the pregnancy center, Melanie decided to place HC baby #2,974, “John,” for adoption. While her decision wasn’t easy, Melanie made the right choice for her and her unborn son.


When she suspected she was pregnant, “Anabelle” called a friend and asked how she should handle her “situation.” Fortunately, Anabelle’s friend helped her research her options online, and they soon discovered Human Coalition!

Scared to tell her parents the news, “Amber” thought every option was worth considering. After discovering she was pregnant, Amber went online to search for abortion-related information. Her search led her to Human Coalition, and she readily welcomed the opportunity to visit a life-affirming pregnancy center. During her appointment, Amber shared her fears that led her to consider abortion — telling her parents the news, not getting a college education, and her inability to provide for her baby. After the center’s staff addressed her fears, Amber decided to tell her parents the truth. Surprise! Amber’s parents are excited about HC baby #2,907, whom Amber named “Joseph.” And they’ve encouraged her to sign up for parenting classes and enroll for college!


"Kayla" realized all she needed was the support of others to help equip her to raise Human Coalition baby #2889, "Ben!" "Kayla" sat in silence when she discovered she was pregnant. She always thought an unplanned pregnancy would happen to someone else. Rather than telling a friend, "Kayla" went online and began to research her options. She was greeted by HC in her search, and encouraged to visit a life-affirming clinic for help. "Kayla" went to her appointment and openly welcomed the assistance offered to her — a pregnancy test, sonogram, and government aid programs. Once resistant to help, "Kayla" opened up to the staff as she realized they truly cared about her and her son. Love and support continue to make life saves like "Ben's" a possibility!


“Amelia” turned her fears into ambitions by welcoming baby #2,845, “Anna!” “Amelia” knew she couldn’t hide from her pregnancy any longer when she went online to search for alternatives. Rather than find an abortion clinic, “Amelia” was offered an appointment at one of HC’s life-affirming clinics. “Amelia” accepted and immediately connected with the staff at the center. She shared her grief, fears, and disbelief over her pregnancy.

Encouragement and support helped save the life of sweet baby #2,835, "Grace!"


Time stood still when “Anna” realized she was pregnant with baby #2,813, "Avery." Trying to determine her next steps, “Anna” went online to research her options. In her search she discovered HC and was put in contact with a life-affirming clinic. Her parents joined “Anna” at her appointment, determined to encourage her to choose LIFE for her unborn. As “Anna” discovered she had her parents assistance, as well as classes and material help provided by one of HC’s participating clinics, “Anna” decided she was more than capable of choosing LIFE for her baby! Let’s celebrate that “Anna” will readily welcome “Avery,” into the world in 2015!


“B” couldn’t believe she was pregnant with baby #2,784. Rather than tell her child’s father, she went online and looked for abortion information. “B” found HC instead and made an appointment with a life-affirming clinic. Nurse “J” talked with “B” during her visit, and continued to follow up after her appointment. “B” resisted at first, but soon welcomed the assistance and encouragement “J” offered. And it paid off! “B” decided to face pregnancy with the help of those around her and will soon welcome baby #2,784 into her family!

2765 & 2766

Twins win for “M” as she welcomes baby girls #2,765 and #2,766 into the world! “M” ran to the bathroom alone only to confirm her greatest fear: she was pregnant. A mother to a child under one, and having dealt with a bad prior pregnancy, “M” wanted to put an end to her second pregnancy. She went online and looked for abortion information. Fortunately her search led her to HC first, and ultimately to a life-affirming clinic. At her appointment, “M” realized her failing marriage and her fears of mothering her second child were no reason to consider aborting. “M” was given an ultrasound, where she discovered she was having twins!


“A” took her difficult situation and decided she was determined to choose LIFE for baby #2,736! “A” shook her head in disbelief when she realized she was pregnant. With two children already “A” felt she had to make the dreadful decision to abort. “A” went online looking for a clinic, but a search lead her to Human Coalition, who scheduled her appointment at a nearby life-affirming clinic. “A” talked about adoption but didn’t think that option was right for her. And after weighing an abortion to choosing LIFE, “A” felt determined that she could make it work. “A” decided to embrace the highs and lows of mothering baby #2,736 instead of losing one of her children to abortion.


The mother of baby #2,685 chose love by choosing LIFE for her babe! When “H’s” husband found out she was pregnant, he urged her to research her options. In the midst of her online search, “H” found Human Coalition and ultimately a life-affirming clinic. During her appointment, “H” shared her and her husband’s fears about parenting with the clinic’s staff. After sorting through her thoughts, “H” felt confident in her life decision. She knew that the life of her child would only strengthen the love in her marriage. We’re so proud of “H” for choosing LIFE and love for her unborn baby — baby #2,685!


One quick online search for "abortion" eventually led "K" to choose life for baby #2,620. "K" dropped her positive pregnancy test and her boyfriend ran to the Internet to look for ways to solve her "problem.” HC found them in their search and directed "K" and her boyfriend to a life-affirming clinic. Together they went and heard their baby’s heartbeat, proclaiming "we're going to try and keep the baby!” With a relationship on the rocks, the center offered counseling and put them in contact with other charities who help men and women in their situation every day. "K" and her boyfriend took the assistance offered and chose LIFE for baby #2,620!


Determined not to follow in her mother’s footsteps, “M” chose LIFE for baby #2,609! With a post-abortive mother of her own, “M” was certain abortion was her only option. She took to the Internet to look up her options, and discovered HC. Our team paired her with a neighboring life-affirming clinic where she was shown her first ultrasound. “M” faced an internal battle as she thought of the LIFE of her unborn child. Living with a friend, rejected by the baby’s father, “M” felt she was stuck. “M” returned to the clinic to watch a video on how an abortion is performed, she wrote a list of pro’s and con’s of her options, and shared her fears of how the decision would affect her mentally.

“S” sat alone in disbelief as she stared at her first positive pregnancy test. Denying the reality of her situation, “S” went online to research her options. It was that search that led her to Human Coalition and a participating life-affirming clinic. “S” reluctantly scheduled her first appointment, and arrived to find a staff ready and waiting to help. “S” and her boyfriend “J” saw their first ultrasound and chose LIFE for their sweet baby, #2,573! “S” and “J” enrolled in parenting classes and are eager to meet their firstborn!

Fortunately, “M” received counsel that encouraged her and her boyfriend to wait to make a decision on next steps. At a follow up appointment, “M” was able to see her unborn child and was so grateful she waited. It was then that “M” chose LIFE for her sweet little babe — child #2,475!


“G” conquered her fears and chose LIFE for her second child, baby #2,392! Already a mother of one, “G” felt too overwhelmed to accept that she was pregnant a second time. Rather than embrace the opportunity of motherhood, “G” went online to research her abortion “options.” HC was there in her time of need and helped pair her with a life-affirming clinic in her area instead. At her first appointment at the clinic, “G” was able to see her healthy, fourteen week old unborn son! “G” realized baby #2,392 was never a “choice” to be made, he is her son — She chose LIFE!

Fortunately she came into contact with HC first and was partnered with a nearby life-affirming pregnancy clinic. There, “L” shared her fears: “separated from her boyfriend,” “just started a new job,” “ready to do things by herself” — all which faded away when she heard how her third had already developed. “L” realized that no matter how great her fears, her child’s life should be her primary focus. Today we celebrate “L’s” brave decision for LIFE, and the mark her third will now have a chance to leave!

The staff member speaking with “L” explained that the center was not an abortion clinic, but encouraged “L” to come in and ask more questions about her other options.

Divorced with two children, the father of her unborn child had already stated he would never marry her if she continued the pregnancy. His abandonment was devastating to her and her other two children. “P” said she wished she could make everything go away and move on with her kids. She had every right to be worried for the future of her unborn baby. Without the support of the father and rather his complete condemnation for the birth, “P” feels alone and isolated. Yet “P” is a very brave woman.

Introducing the heroic life save story of mommy “Marley” and baby #1,315! "Marley" originally contacted Human Coalition thinking she might be pregnant due to a possible sexual assault. We set up an appointment for her at a neighboring life-affirming center, where she openly shared her concerns. Marley was set on abortion and, in fact, never planned to willingly pursue motherhood. Due to an irregular cycle, and confusion as to the time of the assault, Marley believed she might have been around 18 weeks pregnant. The center performed her first ultrasound, and to everyone’s shock — Discovered she was 30 weeks along! This discovery dramatically changed her options and her emotions on the situation. In a follow up call the next day, Marley explained she had decided to pursue adoption. However, within a matter of weeks, Marley went into pre-term labor and gave birth to a healthy baby boy. In a conversation two weeks after the baby's birth, Marley shared that being a parent was officially her BEST option! Please SHARE Marley’s story and join us in prayer for her new little family!


After looking into all of her options, the mother of baby #1,307 decided that NO abortion is truly safe. D knew she eventually wanted to have more children, but felt she was already struggling to raise her one. Rather than rush into a decision, she went online to do her research. It was there she read what surgical abortion entailed — the pain that could be involved, and the complications she could face in future pregnancies, associated with having multiple abortions. After speaking with a staff member at a partnering HC life-affirming center, she realized there truly was NO quick, easy, and painless abortion. D knows now her best option — is to care for and love her unborn child! SHARE this post if you are thankful D has wholeheartedly embraced motherhood a second time around!

Instead, T went to a life-affirming center where helping hands were there to inform and support her. T realized the consequences of losing her child were far more damaging than losing her boyfriend. SHARE this story if you know that when God shuts a door, something better is always around the corner!
