A teenaged mother was rescued from an abortion facility thanks to text messaging. She has since given birth to her precious son. Story here.
In this case, it is reported that neither the baby’s mother or father wanted an abortion. The young woman was hauled against her will to the abortion facility by her own mother (the baby’s maternal grandmother). The baby’s paternal grandmother sent out a call for help, and a sidewalk counselor pulled off the save.
As they explain in the article, by using texting instead of a voice call, the counselor and trapped mother were able to communicate privately. The counselor sent encouragement, and also a picture of a preborn baby the same age as the one in mortal danger.
