Please pray for Kelly, one of the girls that came into our office at Jerome and Fordham this week. She came in saying that she needed an abortion because she and her fiance were not ready for a child yet. After talking to her a little more about what was going on, I found out that Kelly actually did want to keep this child. In fact, she and her fiance had been very excited about the baby, though unplanned, they had been preparing for this baby. Then all of the sudden, her fiance "changed his mind" for no apparent reason. He began to threaten her and tell her she had to have an abortion. On top of all that, Kelly found out last week that she tested positive for TB and that there was a 90% chance that her baby would have TB too.
She is frightened and confused. She wants life for her baby, but everything seems to be going against her and for the abortion. She left the center saying she would pray about it more and I promised to pray for her fiance as well. Please pray that she chooses life despite the obstacles in front of her.
