Kansas City, KS – A baby was saved from abortion on Saturday, May 22, 2010, outside an abortion clinic in Kansas City, Kansas, after a woman responded to a text message, saw the Truth Truck, and spoke with pro-lifers.
Operation Rescue’s Truth Truck driver, Mark Gietzen, who also heads up the Kansas Coalition for Life, led a group from Wichita to pray and offer help to abortion-bound women outside the Aid For Women abortion mill, located in a run-down area near downtown Kansas City.
Gietzen reports that a woman, who had came out of the clinic to smoke, noticed the graphic images of aborted babies depicted on the side of the Truth Truck and sent a text message to her younger sister who was inside awaiting an abortion. The younger woman came out of the clinic to see the pictures for herself.
“This was a very tearful event on Saturday morning – fortunately mostly happy tears – happy, because in the end Precious finally realized that we were actually willing to help her in her difficult situation that drove her to schedule the abortion in the first place!” said Gietzen.
“We rejoice that this child will now have an opportunity to experience life and that Mom was spared the trauma of abortion,” said Operation Rescue Senior Policy Advisor Cheryl Sullenger.
“I have heard thousands of women express regret for their abortions, but in over 26 years of pro-life ministry, I have never heard even one woman tell me that she regretted having kept her baby. Operation Rescue is proud to have been a part in saving this baby’s life and sparing the mother from a lifetime of remorse. We wish her all the best.”
