.- An Indiana woman who inadvertently dialed a pro-life group instead of a Planned Parenthood clinic about her appointment for an abortion instead found the support she needed to decide to bring her child to term.
The story was recounted in a March 9 report from David Bereit, National Director of 40 Days for Life.
A young woman in Indianapolis, Indiana, named as “Erin,” had sent her children to school and childcare at a friend’s house when she noticed she was late for her abortion appointment at Planned Parenthood.
Though she thought she was calling Planned Parenthood to see if she could still have the abortion, she misdialed the number and instead called the cell phone of 40 Days for Life Indianapolis.
Joseph, the man who answered her call, tried to calm the woman. He took her name and number and said that a counselor would call her back.
The counselor, Elizabeth, called back and begged her not to hang up. She told Erin she had not reached Planned Parenthood and asked if she was a Christian.
When Erin said she was, Elizabeth told her God’s grace was at work in the “wrong number,” 40 Days for Life reports.
