Toledo, Ohio

A young woman in Toledo had scheduled an abortion, though it turns out the abortion was more of her boyfriend’s idea than her own.

She had made the initial payment at the abortion facility … but after thinking about it, she changed her mind.

“She went back into the facility to ask for her money back,” said Peter in Toledo, “and told the staff that she in fact herself does not believe in abortion.”

When she left the building, volunteers talked and prayed with her, then directed her to life-affirming community resources.

Peter said this came right after the annual procession to the abortion center, an event that gathers more than 300 participants.
