A counselor in Austin talked to a couple as they left the abortion center. They?d been there for a sonogram appointment ? that?s required 24 hours prior to an abortion.

The mother did not want the abortion ? but her boyfriend did. And she thought she would be unable to continue the pregnancy without his support.

?Thankfully,? said Heather in Austin, ?the counselor had a brochure showing the stages of development of the unborn child. They couldn't believe it!?

That really got the boyfriend's attention. ?Maybe this isn't such a good idea!?

They quickly called the pregnancy help center ? and canceled the abortion!

Heather tells of another woman who was in the abortion facility?s waiting room. She was unsure about her decision. As she looked out the window, she saw that a large tree branch had fallen on her car!

?This was a sign that this was NOT the right choice,? Heather said. ?She left and went straight to the pregnancy center, where she saw her baby on a sonogram. She chose life! God is good!?
