Sherry Pierce was waiting with a team of sidewalk counsellors outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in the city of Tempe, Arizona, wondering if today would be the day she and her team would be able to offer women advice and counsel that would help them and save an unborn child from abortion. The team got talking to a mother-to-be who was on her way into the clinic.
The mother was only four weeks pregnant, and, as she approached the Planned Parenthood clinic, who can know what pressures pushed her, what questions and fears plagued her as she considered the “choice” she was planning to make? Sherry Pierce explains the counsellors talked with the mother about her plans to terminate her pregnancy, and after serious thought, the mom decided to let her child live… But what came next surprised Sherry: they saved not one baby but two!
Seven months later, that same mom gave birth to twin baby girls, Olivia Grace and Kara Shea, and she invited the stranger who met her on that Planned Parenthood sidewalk to celebrate her joy. “Today I had the privilege of holding these precious little ones in my arms just hours after their birth,” Pierce said.
BIBLE STUDY: Jeremiah 1:4-5
PRAISE: God that Sherry and her team persevered in their task of saving children. Pray that this and other mothers may receive all the support they need in a loving Christian environment.
