"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

(Life News.com) When pro-life advocates Dave and Mary Labun left their house, they didn't expect to see a note on their car. What they found surprised them. In their hands they held not a complaint from a neighbor or a police citation. Instead, a teenager told them their pro-life bumper sticker prompted her to reconsider a decision to have an abortion.
The mother-to-be left a note on the Labun's car informing them how much that simple phrase affected her life. When she saw the phrase (Abortion stops a beating heart) it made her reconsider her "choice" and convinced her to do a "180" sparing her baby's fate. Although she kept her name anonymous, her letter will probably be circulating throughout pro-life circles for years to come.
Here is a full transcript of the letter:
This might be very weird, but I wanted to thank you. I'm not sure what you believe in, but I'm a strong believer in God, and right now I am 17 and pregnant. And on my way to school one day, I was really wondering what to do Â I was really thinking about abortion, because I was scared.
As that thought came to mind, I walked past your car, and happened to look over and saw your bumper sticker, "Abortion Stops a Beating Heart."
My heart dropped. I believe God was talking to me, through that sticker, and I also believe I will never think about it again. I'm going to keep my baby, and I'm not that scared any more.
Thank you so much for helping me make the best choice of my life. God bless Â a very happy mother-to-be.
Although a minor story, it goes to show how a simple message can alter a person's future, especially when it comes to human life. Regardless how one feels about abortion, one thing we all must realize is that simply destroying our origins is not particually the wisest thing to do as homosapians, especially since we all started out as "tissues," or fetuses or whatever label satisfies one's conscience.
Adoption's always an option as there are plenty of parents who are unable to have children and would love to raise them if one is unwilling to keep theirs. The young should always be protected by the strong as they are the future of humanity, and simply destroying them is in essence destroying the very foundations of the human race.
