Kelly’s story

I was sixteen years old and found out I was pregnant. The father of the baby forced me to have an abortion. It was horrible. I had a really hard time with it. Within a year I got pregnant again. But this time I told him it’s time to man-up and do this because I’m not going to go through another abortion. Surprisingly he stuck with me and we did it. He has changed a lot and is a really great dad!

Statistics show that the father of the baby is the single most important influencer in a pregnancy decision. One study showed almost 40% of women reported that he influenced their decision the most. Many men who at first feel overwhelmed, trapped or fearful of the responsibility and eventually decide to parent become excellent fathers. Encourage and empower the young men in your life to step out in faith despite their fears and choose life!
