15-Year-Old Pregnant Girl Held in Abortion Clinic Against Her Will Rescued by Police
Life News ^ | Sarah Terzo

Buffalo, NY (LiveActionNews) — A teenager went through a harrowing ordeal at an abortion clinic on May 16, according to well-known pro-life activist Abby Johnson.

According to status updates posted on Facebook, Johnson, who told the story of her pro-life conversion from Planned Parenthood director to dedicated pro-lifer in her bestselling book Unplanned, received an emergency phone call from the mother of a pregnant fifteen-year-old she had been counseling.

Close-up Sad Teen GirlJohnson described how the girl, who had changed her mind about having an abortion, was held against her will in a locked room at an abortion clinic. She explains:

I have had contact with this 15 year old young woman for several weeks. I was put in touch with her by a prolifer in the Buffalo area who was hoping I could share my experiences with her. Her mother does not want her to have an abortion, but is not mentally stable. Her boyfriend is really pushing her to abort.

Please be in prayer that this young girl will feel the presence of the Holy Spirit as she navigates through this journey. Also be in prayer for the local prolifers who are working with her directly. This is a difficult situation, but we know that God is in control.

It is not unusual for the partner of a pregnant woman to pressure her into abortion – in fact, one study showed that 64% of women who have abortions feel they were pressured into them, usually by their male partners. Johnson explained:

She went to the Buffalo Women’s Services tonight for an ultrasound only. As a 15 year old girl, she is very swayed by the opinions of her boyfriend…who does not want her to have anything to do with the pregnancy center in her area. It is not uncommon for private abortion clinics to see patients late at night.

In fact, here in Austin, we have a doctor that starts his abortion procedures sometimes at 10pm. She asked to see her ultrasound and the clinic absolutely refused. She decided then that they were obviously not interested in helping her and told them that she wanted to leave. They would not allow her to leave the room she was in and locked the door. Her mom started freaking out in the waiting room demanding to see her daughter. At that point, her mother was removed from the facility.

It was at this point that she started texting me and the prolifer she has been working with. Both of us called the police and they arrived shortly. Cheryl, the local (and amazing) prolifer drove to the clinic and the young girl was released in her custody for the weekend. The clinic where this girl was being held is the same one who is opening a “birth center” inside the abortion facility.

Some people may wonder why the girl did not call the police herself. A young teenager might find it intimidating or scary to call the police in such a situation, or may not have the perspective to think of it. It might be far more likely for her to reach out to people she knows and trusts, and who, because of their ongoing encouragement, she knew would help her.

The situation ended happily. Thanks to the actions of Johnson and the other pro-lifers, and the intervention of the police, both the girl and her baby are safe.

This shocking story shows how far some abortion clinics will go to pressure women into having abortions.

Johnson has asked all her followers to pray for the pregnant teen, who has not been named.

There's no reason for this.

She should have been on the pill or some other kind of contraceptive.

Did I miss the part of the story in which the abortion clinic staff were arrested for kidnapping and false imprisonment?

15 years old is not a woman. I hope they are charged with kidnapping.

Only in madness

would a 15 year old pregnant lass be called a young woman

AND

A 19 year old gunman with several arrests be referred to as a teen age gunman - who made a ‘mistake’.

Praise God for the life He spared, and kudos to the young woman for fighting the pressure. Yes, she obviously should’ve been chaste in the first place, but at least she was wise enough not to compound her first error with a second and far worse error.

So is your’s . I’ve read far too much exaggeration to believe an unsupported allegation brought by someone unwilling to file formal charges knowing they will be charged themselves with filing a false report. My message to the complainant is put up or shut up. I note no arrests of the facility personnel by the responding cops. My suspicions are up.

Stupid still.

By your logic the callers should be arrested for making false accusations to the police etc...

I guess nothing happened and the place doesn’t exist.

Why your hostility to the pro-lifers?

That’s what your comments are about.

Agreed. Sorry to say, but it sounds fishy to me.

They shouldn’t be. This is extremely typical of the social dynamics in these situations. The girl just wants to get back to “normal life,” whatever that was for her. Even if she has realized the clinic acted illegally, she may not want to cause trouble for her family or her boyfriend. This can be the case even when those individuals are doing her wrong.

As for whether abortion clinics can go too far in pushing their “product” on less than willing “customers,” yes, that can happen. The clinic will align themselves with the person or persons most motivated to spend the money, and will gladly trample all over “informed consent,” especially when the mom is a minor. Don’t doubt for a second that it absolutely can happen that way.

Keep in mind that the reason they probably did this is because they needed to make their quota. Aborted baby parts is BIG BUSINESS for the industry.

“Cheryl, the local (and amazing) prolifer drove to the clinic and the young girl was released in her custody”

Why was she in someone else’s custody? What crime did she commit? Sounds like the crime was NOT committing a murder.

Why are you guessing? You are bizarrely bad at it.

Read the article.

I guess..the place doesn’t exist

Really, truly bad guess:

Buffalo Womenservices, located at 2500 Main St. in Buffalo, New York, is a licensed diagnostic and treatment center. We are a member of the National Abortion Federation and NARAL. We offer the most advanced medical procedures and technology along with our physician's 25 years of experience.

We provide women with safe, legal and confidential abortion services in a compassionate and supportive setting. Surgical abortions are performed by our OB/GYN physician to 22 weeks. We also provide medical abortion and early surgical abortions.

• PROTESTERS: Unfortunately, there may be some protesters in front of our facility, but they are not allowed past the front of the building or on clinic property. Please avoid communicating with the protesters and notify clinic staff immediately of any problems or concerns.

• PARKING: There is parking available behind our building. We ask that you use the backdoor, as the front door is for staff and vendors only.

• CELL PHONES: Cell phone use is not permitted at the clinic for privacy reasons. All phones must be turned off and put away while at Buffalo Womenservices. A pay phone is available for public use

I think you should reread the basis for my post saying it must not exist.

This is why there are ‘age of consent laws’ - kids can’t legally make their own decisions.

My hostility is toward propagandists who use lies to augment honorable sentiment and the gullible fools who refuse to look beyond the sentiment to the obvious inconsistencies in the fable. It’s important for those on the right side of the debate to maintain an uncompromising relationship with the truth. This story doesn’t pass the smell test.

it must not exist

With just a bit of effort on Google, you would find that both Buffalo Womenservices and the State of New York do exist.

Stop guessing. Knowledge is good.
