We are thrilled to share the story of “Sara” and her baby, Eli!
When Sara learned that she was pregnant, she was overwhelmed by fear and anxiety. Her life was about to change, for good. As an 18 year old, Sara felt that she was simply too young to handle motherhood and that neither she and her boyfriend were prepared to be parents. Abortion seemed to be the logical choice, and she acquired the pills needed for the medication abortion. With a heavy heart, Sara took the first dose of her abortion.
“The instant I took those first pills – I knew I didn’t want to do it. I didn’t want to abort my baby. I called my boyfriend’s sister, who found Abortion Pill Reversal at the Pregnancy Clinic... I am so thankful for all [the Pregnancy Clinic] did for me… not only the medication to save my baby. They kept checking on me… Joy (APR Coordinator) and Shellie (Nurse Manager) were amazing.”Sara
Today, little Eli is a happy smiling baby boy who brings joy and laughter to his parents every day.
Eli is just one of over 15 babies whose life has been saved by the APR protocol. With the support of partners, the Ministry covers the cost of the APR medication, sonograms, counseling, and medical services. Today, medication abortions account for over half of all abortions in the US – and the number continues to rise. It is more important than ever for this life-saving care to be available for women in our community. Learn more about APR at Wellspring Life Ministry here.
