A young mother of four children ? pregnant with her fifth ? was on her way towards Planned Parenthood when she approached two vigil participants ? and noted the scripture verse on their signs.

?According to one of the counselors,? said Tim in Springfield, ?she appeared conflicted about what to do. She said she was scared and worried. She knew abortion was wrong ? but she did not know what else to do.?

The counselor reminded her of God?s love ? and that God would never abandon her, especially when she needs Him most. In addition, the nearby pregnancy help center would assist her ? free of charge ? both before and after her child?s birth.

?With contact info in hand and thanking the counselors for their help,? Tim said, ?she turned around and walked the other way. Praise God!?
