Woman Turns From Abortion, Trusts Christ and Marries the Father of Her Child—All in One Week

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina woman changed her mind about obtaining an abortion last week and instead turned to Christ, quickly becoming convicted in her new life that she and her longtime boyfriend should finally marry and honor God.

Vicky Kaseorg of Cities4Life shared the story on her blog on Friday, referring to the woman simply as “J.”

She explained that J, who has four children with her boyfriend of 11 years, concluded in the midst of difficult circumstances that aborting her latest pregnancy was the answer. She went to a Charlotte-area abortion facility on Monday with plans to end the life of her unborn child.

However, upon arrival, J was greeted by volunteers with Cities4Life, who offered free assistance and shared the gospel with her.

J changed her mind—in more ways than one.

“She chose life for her baby, then chose to ask Jesus to be Lord of her life,” Kaseorg wrote. “[She] was convicted of the need to obey God in all things [and consequently] told her boyfriend, who said, ‘Then let’s get married now.'”

However, J’s boyfriend had a busy work schedule and would be working 12-hour shifts for the next several days. Kaseorg would also be leaving for a week on Saturday. Therefore, it seemed like the wedding would have to wait.

Much to her surprise, Kaseorg received a call on Thursday that J’s boyfriend suddenly had the day off due to Internet issues, and they wanted to marry right away. After the two received counseling from the Cities4Life director, Kaseorg took them both to the courthouse to obtain a marriage license, and then went shopping with J to buy a wedding dress.

“[W]e went to a consignment shop and instantly found a perfect dress and shoes!” Kaseorg marveled. “She tried it on [and it] fit as though it was made for her.”

“I had already snagged a beautiful ring from home that I never wear and had found years ago. I kept it, thinking one day God would reveal who I could bless with that lovely ring,” she shared. “I hoped it would fit J. It did! Perfectly—as though it were made for her.”

Kaseorg was told that the couple would have to wait until 6 p.m. for a justice of the peace, but even that matter worked out as a pastor who officiates marriages “just happened” to be in town that day and was available.

“I told him J’s story, and he said he was honored to be a part of this. He lives an hour or so away, but just happened to be in town which never happens. He could do the wedding at 3 p.m.,” she recalled.

J and her boyfriend were then wed that afternoon, and were gifted with a hotel stay by a Cities4Life donor who wanted to bless them in that way. The hotel also provided a free dinner to celebrate the marriage.

“They were so grateful and so happy,” Kaseorg said. “That beaming woman was a completely different lady than the one I met Monday, depressed, despairing and hopeless at the abortion center.”

She encouraged Christians to allow themselves to be used of the Lord, for one never knows what He might have in store for them on that day. Cities4Life will continue to help the couple as they have additional needs at this time.

    Thank God! The only right thing to happen. Man and woman should get married if they were intimate, whether the woman becomes pregnant or not, as the Holy Bible commands so. Man should take responsibility. After marriage, man must live to protect and provide his family. A real man is he who sustains his family. Heroes don’t have to rescue the entire Planet Earth or become famous or rich; the Earth is melting away anyway. II Peter 3. Protect the family and serve God together to the end.

    Excellent testimonial. I would not necessarily encourage marriage simply cuz two individuals had a child out of wedlock but four with a fifth on the way, I think it’s the only thing to do, let alone the right one. And it’s great they did. God will honor them. May He indeed do so.

    Lefties, where are you? How come you’re not posting that this woman should have aborted. Your silence is deafening. And thankfully it is.

      Ok I’ll bite. Why would anyone want a woman to have an abortion when she made the decision on her own to keep it. and to marry the father. I know of no one on the board that would want abortion, I believe it is much more about the right to choose after all it’s “her own body”. no one supports abortion but they do support the mother’s right to decide for herself.

        The fetus is an entirely separate being. The fetus isn’t an organ. With the, “my body logic”, I should be allowed to kill you (or anyone) while hold hands with the person. Sounds ridiculous right? So is the “my body” excuse. It fires me up that pro-abortion people encourage MURDER!

        Life begins at conception. And if a mother decides to take the baby’s life, it’s murder. Choosing to abort is making an unilateral decision to take a life. Which is the very definition of murder. Look at a photo! The only part(s) of the mother that could actually be considered parts of her body are the cord and the placenta. If they wanna argue, “My body, my choice.” Then wouldn’t that mean the man should decide? The fetus was initially a sperm cell that was produced in a man’s testicles afterall, rightfully calling it “part of the body” right? But they’ll learn on judgement.

        But to put it bluntly, abortion is murder. That’s why Satanists support it so much. A victim’s testimony explains Satanists would have a doctor abort the sexually assaulted child’s baby for sacrifices. Even going as far as eating the aborted baby’s remains. They even went so far as to forcing the victims to eat the fetus. You can see an interview with a victim from the early 80s if you don’t believe me.

          Look, if you would read my post again, I did not defend their position on the subject, I defended them from being improperly shown to anyone who reads our posts.
          You thought I was defending their view, but I was defending the person. Who you described very badly and needed to be rectified so the truth is here too.
          so, don’t bother to lecture me. And don’t tell me I don’t know about these guys – I do – and not one is like you say they are.
          God bless!
          And please keep the gross to yourself. No one needs to read that on a Christian site, especially since you posted it for the wrong reason towards the wrong person.

            I apologize for failing to examine your comment better. I tried my best to not make it about you. It was originally about you, but I looked at your comment again and changed the “yous” to “theys”. My instincts felt I was wasting my time typing, but I was nearly done at the time so I didn’t bother to delete it, wasting all that effort. But it seems like it’s caused me to put in even more effort. I promise you my 1st language is English. I have 2 mentel conditions. Asperger’s and ADD. My Asperger’s is mostly the blame as it affects my vocabulary and how I interpret things in someone’s sentences. It’s also a social disorder. I wasn’t treated until my teens, so it’ll be a while before I grow out of it completely. Ik that’s inexcusable to at least some people, but it’s the truth. It’s a struggle everyday. And I didn’t intend to lecture. I thought I was making a defense, for lack of better word. Apologies once again. May the LORD bless you and your family. Maranatha!

            I have no problem because I don’t mind explaining things to people, so anything you need help with, you can find my name and reply no matter what story it is, Ok?

            I have a lot of patience so please, you come to me for anything you need.
            God bless you!

            For some reason, I know SO many Asperger sufferers who are some of the best pro-lifers around!

            mental* Brain ain’t working right this week lol.

          • Tyler Watson

            Sorry if some parts don’t make much sense. The brain problem is well… a problem.

          • Sharon_at_home

            Then ask a question about what you aren’t getting.

      • Stan_t_Man

        Sharon, we have had numerous posters on this board that advocated for abortion all the time, and they were openly sadden when a women made the choice not to kill her child.

        There are pro-abortion people and they support abortion first and foremost. I hope that does not describe you.

        • Sharon_at_home

          Well Stan. I have not seen anyone post with the statement that they wanted others to abort unless it is their own choice. I don’t know where you have been reading, but the posters here have not ever promoted abortion, just the right to choose.

          • Stan_t_Man

            You are incorrect, Sharon. There are plenty of people that are pro-abortion, and some of them post here.

          • WorldGoneCrazy-NotMurderedYet

            You should see the deathscorts at our abortuary, Sharon.

            When we save a baby from them, they go ballistic!

            They are NOT pro-“choice” unless the choice is abortion.

            They are pro-death.

            The days of “a difficult, regrettable” decision are LONG past us, Sharon.

            “So we ask, yet again: if there’s nothing wrong with abortion, then why is loving it something to be embarrassed about? Is there any other principle or cause from which activists feel a constant need to distance themselves while championing it?” — Calvin Freiburger

            Women actually shout their abortions nowadays – abortion has become a religious cult to many – just take the space out in the link below:

            Pro murder is what it truly is.

          • WorldGoneCrazy-NotMurderedYet

            Very well put, Tyler!

    • Tyler Watson

      On the contrary, it’s actually wise to get married ASAP if the girlfriend gets pregnant prior to marriage. Although this is targeted to Christian couples. Well, they became a Christian couple, she was pregnant (despite the other children), so it was meant to happen.

  • Tyler Watson

    Wow! If that isn’t a miracle from the LORD through the amazing Gospel, Idk what miracles are!
