Knocking on the door of the Planned Parenthood abortion center, an overwhelmed college student stood waiting to be buzzed inside the foreboding cement building. That nonchalant moment of time between Zahra* knocking on the door and the front desk unhitching the lock was the moment God would use to change Zahra’s unborn baby’s life forever. It was past normal Life On Wheels’ hours. But sidewalk volunteers, Amanda and Sarah, had seen young Zahra walk up the sidewalk for her abortion appointment. Amanda was holding a sign that read “Free Pregnancy Testing & Ultrasound: Sign In Here.”
