Kirsten’s Choice

It has been said that “nothing changes if nothing changes.” This simple truth can be seen every day at pro-life clinics like Raffa Clinic and also at abortion clinics when former clients walk through  the doors wrestling with yet another agonizing pregnancy decision.

When Kirsten called Raffa Clinic, she already had a very young daughter and was not ready to be a mother again. The father of the baby had left her to fend for herself in the aftermath, dealing with medical issues and the care of an aging family member. The thought of raising a child on her own had seemed like too much work. But ultimately, Kirsten chose life and was learning to make it work. But then the unimaginable happened…Kirsten found out she was pregnant. Again.

When Kirsten called Raffa, she was distraught. Her new partner was pressuring her to have an abortion and she had no idea how she’d ever raise two kids on her own. The Raffa staff person  listened, spoke with compassion, helped her process her thoughts and circumstances. Kirsten and the father of her baby came into our clinic and, after seeing their child for the first time through an ultrasound, CHOSE LIFE. Kirsten poured her thankfulness to the staff for being there during her time of need.

Because of you, Kirsten’s new baby has a future!
