Mary recently contacted us via our text helpline. Through messaging, we were able to secure an appointment for a pregnancy test for Mary (not her real name). When Mary arrived at the center she was accompanied by her high school teacher. Mary didn’t have a way to get to the center so she reached out to her teacher who was there to support her.
One of our client advocates met with Mary and talked with her about her situation. Mary plans on attending college in the fall and her family will not be happy if she is pregnant. Mary and her boyfriend have been together for a couple of months and he’s mentioned about maybe getting married in a couple of years.
Test results showed Mary is pregnant. Mary plans to keep this baby. She has the support of her high school teacher and the resources our center can provide. Yet it appears the deck is stacked against her in our society of selfishness. She is certainly abortion-vulnerable, so we’ll work to continue to encourage her and support her with necessary resources and referrals.
Thank you for helping provide the truth in love with those we serve!
