Seven years ago Amy Blackwell drove an hour and a half from her home to an abortion clinic in Shreveport planning to abort her child. She saw “a little old man” on the sidewalk praying for her, and ducked into the center when he turned away.
She said she was in a bad place in her life at the time and didn’t want to go through with the pregnancy. But on her return trip to the abortion facility with a friend, on the day she was to have the abortion, she remembered that man and broke down. It saved her child.
Amy recorded her “almost abortion story” in January, and in June she shared it on her Facebook page “The Testimony I Never Wanted.”
That’s how Chris Davis, who leads the 40 Days for Life Shreveport-Bossier program as well as the local sidewalk advocates team, heard the good news.
“I don’t know whether to call this save No. 114 or save No. 1?” he said.
Davis got in touch with Amy, and with her description he immediately know who her prayer warrior was. He’s set up a reunion for Amy, her family, and the man later this month.
In the meantime Amy, who lives in Texas, returned to the abortion facility, this time to pray on the sidewalk for other women who find themselves in that same bad place she was in seven years ago.
