A simple phone call saved her daughter from abortion

Cradle My Heart Today | Marianne’ story 5-18-17

Thirty years ago, as a new Christian Marianne felt she had ruined the rest of her life. Listen now:

She was just 19, and she was pregnant. Searching for help, Marianne saw “Pregnancy Test” for Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States.

Feeling uneasy, but convinced she had no other choice, Marianne dialed the number but they never picked up.

So she dialed the next listing, the one for a Pregnancy Center, where she found the answers, compassion, and the hope she needed to cherish her daughter—even if it meant her life would be completely different from here on out.

Looking back, Marianne—now a grandmother says, “When that first call I made was not answered, it was in God’s hands. And God still hears my thanks to this day, 30 years later.”

Women are still reaching for the phone to find help in an unplanned pregnancy. Through simple phone calls, the pregnancy help movement sparks hope, by offering women a true alternative to abortion. The services are generally offered free of charge thanks to the donor-supported non-profit business model the centers offer their clients.

Pregnancy help centers are truly labors of life-saving love.

“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.”Hebrews 13:16
