Stories from the Call Center
“I was talking to a woman who was standing alone on a dirt road; she was about to make a life-or-death decision,” shares Cheryl Gonzalez, Call Center Director (pictured: center). While driving, this woman called the Center in a time of desperation. The conversation gripped her so much, she ended up stopping the car so she could focus on the conversation. Cheryl shares another story of a client who was abortion-determined and called the Center as she was driving to another state to seek an abortion. This client ended up turning around, driving home, and keeping her child.
Telehealth Nurse Amy (pictured: right) explains, “nurses are the most trusted profession.” When she speaks with clients, she also brings her many years of experience as an OB nurse. Amy shares a story of one woman seeking an abortion who’d had a c-section less than two years prior and feared potential uterine rupture. With Amy’s OB experience, she was able to share accurate data related to the risks and calmed the client’s nerves so that she ultimately chose life.
Our nurses share medically accurate, life-affirming information that allows our clients to make informed decisions about their pregnancies, as opposed to the misleading and manipulative information they find from “Dr. Google.” In the words of Tina Dyal (pictured: left), “we just show up and it’s God’s job to do the rest.” All glory goes to God in these rescue efforts.
