Patient Stories

Reilly: I took the pill…but I’ve changed my mind!

Reilly is pregnant with no idea how this could have happened. She has been using birth control and trying to be super careful not to get pregnant and yet, it has happened. She takes a pregnancy test and it says the word she is dreading: “Pregnant.” Alone, scared, and fearing she will be kicked out of her home, Reilly calls the abortion clinic who is happy to provide the abortion pills, for a fee of almost $800 of course. “I can’t be a parent. I am so sorry, my sweet babies. But I just can’t do this. I can’t bring you into this messed up world in the middle of the pandemic!” She swallows the firsts pill and heads for home.

Reilly’s mind keeps going back to that ultrasound she had - TWINS. “I’ve always wanted twins,” she thinks to herself. “But once the time is right and not when there is a worldwide pandemic. I just can’t do this! I’m so sorry, my sweet babies.” As tears roll down her cheeks, regret overwhelms her heart. Reilly decides to check and see if there is ANY possible way to stop this! She contacts a friend who puts her in touch with Your Options Medical.

After our doctor was able to prescribe the reversal, Reilly rushes to pick it up and administer her prescription. Several weeks later, she is happy to report that both her and her babies are healthy and developing as expected. “I am forever grateful that Your Options was there for me and helped me reverse the worst decision of my life. Thank you!”

YOUR donation made sure we were available to serve Reilly and get her the vital medical services she needed in order to successfully reverse her abortion and carry her beautiful twins, Adam and Anna. Thank you for saving lives!

Jessica and Ben: The Importance of Ultrasound

Jessica and Ben were shocked when they found out they were expecting another child. As a married couple, they were using birth control and were not planning on having any more children. “We always wanted two children,” they said, “and we have our boy and our girl and we are happy with that.” Jessica didn’t expect to struggle so much with their decision to have an abortion and was very depressed to be in this situation. After viewing their first ultrasound, the couple stated that they were “sad,” but felt that they should just go through with the abortion. 

During a phone call with the advocate a few days after the ultrasound, Jessica asked if they could come back to have a second ultrasound. “I just can’t make up my mind,” she said. “My heart tells me to have this baby, but my head tells me to go through with the abortion.” During the second ultrasound, the couple could not believe that their baby’s heart was beating so strongly. “It became our baby as soon as I saw that strong heartbeat.” The couple had their second daughter, Maiyalee, in May.

Isabel: Pregnant in High School, How Can I Have a Baby?

Isabel was a high school senior when she learned that she was pregnant. “No way am I having a baby,” she said. “I am way too young.” Both Isabel and the baby’s father were afraid of how their parents would react and thought just having an abortion without telling them was the best thing to do. However, when Isabel had her ultrasound, she started to cry. She told her nurse that she was raised Catholic and knew abortion was wrong. And now that she had seen her baby, she could not go through with it. 

Isabel came back for a second appointment with us, this time accompanied by her mother. Both families ended up embracing this young couple to support them in being parents. Their baby boy, Josian, was born in March of this year. A few months later, her advocate delivered a Welcome Baby Gift to her home and was greeted by a very proud, new mother. Isabel thanked her for helping her make the right choice: “I just love my baby so much and cannot imagine my life without him in it.”
