Wichita, Kansas – In a story that emphasizes the human tragedy of abortion, Mark Gietzen of the Kansas Coalition for Life, has shared a tragic report of a young woman who received an abortion at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Overland Park, Kansas, then committed suicide later that day.
When Planned Parenthood or any other abortionist attempts to say they “save” lives, this is one instance that proves they are dead wrong.
We hope it serves as an exhortation to those who offer help to abortion-bound and abortion vulnerable pregnant women to remain steadfast. When a pro-lifer persuades a mother not to abort her baby, it may be that there is more than one life being saved.
Gietzen’s account is shared below with his permission.
YOU WILL NOT hear this on the news, because the family does not want to talk about it publicly. Unfortunately, we have now confirmed that a beautiful, bright, 20-year-old Wichita girl, named Alishia, who was a potential KCFL Client since about June 2nd, ended up having an abortion at Planned Parenthood in Overland Park, Kansas, and then killed herself with a gunshot to her own head, later that same day in late June, (most likely, but not confirmed on Thursday, June 22nd.)
Alishia had been estranged from her family for a few years, because of drug addiction. She was homeless, and, although she had been an excellent student, had dropped out of high school just prior to graduation.
Alishia did not know who the father of her child was, but she wanted very much to be a loving mother, and to have a child of her own. She loved animals and was strongly against abuse to animals or children. However, Alishia was concerned that her unborn baby was already damaged from her drug and alcohol abuse, and from the limited information that we have, that was the primary reason why Alishia refused to accept our help, and instead chose the abortion option.
We also know that Alishia chose Planned Parenthood, at least in part, because she did not want to have to deal with the KCFL Volunteers at the gate of the South Wind abortion facility in Wichita.
Alishia was still early in her pregnancy, yet apparently too far along to have a chemical abortion at Planned Parenthood-Wichita.
Most likely, Planned Parenthood of Wichita arranged for, or provided Alishia’s transportation to Overland Park for the abortion, because transportation was a daily concern for the voluntarily homeless, Alishia.
I am posting this to urge everyone to understand how heavily the abortion decision weighs on the mind of a young mother, and to urge you to be supportive of the efforts of The Kansas Coalition for Life, to stop abortion by offering meaningful help to those mothers who are considering an abortion.
Please keep Alishia, and others like her, in your prayers.
