Rebecca Rizzi, 24, decided to make an appointment for an abortion at the Planned Parenthood in Tempe, Arizona. “I just felt I had to do it,” she said.

When she arrived, she walked past a group of protesters with the nagging feeling they were in the right. She could hear them every time the door opened and closed. Finally, after waiting more than an hour and leaning toward not going through with it, she went outside for some fresh air.

Rebecca visited a pregnancy resource center with Sherry and determined to choose life, saying, “I had it set in my mind that I could do this and put the baby up for adoption. I could live with that.”

As the pregnancy went on, Sherry continued in her support, even offering to take in the baby herself. But then Rebecca learned she was carrying twins and decided to raise them herself. Last month Olivia Grace and Kara Shea were born. Asked what her advice would be to others in her situation she answered: “I would say to seek help…. I didn’t realize how many resources there were to women in my position. There’s so many options and resources.”
