  ONE (1) CONFIRMED SAVE and TWO (2) TURN-AROUNDS; Jennifer McCoy, Mary LaFrancis and Margaret Mans:

At about 12:30 pm, two young Hispanic ladies (one 18-year-old, and one 20-something year-old) from Liberal, Kansas, came southbound on Bleckley Street, and began to enter The Choices Medical Clinic Parking Lot.

By chance, a Choices Volunteer was in the Choices Parking Lot, and she talked to them for a few minutes. Then the car left Choices, and approached Tiller's driveway. However, Jennifer was able to stop the car, prior to it entering Tiller's Parking Lot.

The 18-year-old lady was driving, but the car belongs to the 20-year-old. Both ladies came to Wichita to have an abortion today. The 18-year-old is 14 weeks pregnant, and the 20 year-old is between 3-and-6 weeks pregnant.

Jennifer and Mary LaFrancis talked to them, and gave them the Standard Literature Pack, plus some Spanish language literature.

Eventually, after talking to Jennifer and Mary, and after viewing the Truth-truck, the younger one started to have second thoughts about having an abortion.

The 20 year-old lady thinks that since she is only 3-to-6 weeks pregnant, that "it is not a baby yet…" and she was intent on having an abortion. She said that it would be an "abortion-by-pill." She also told Jennifer that this baby was the product of rape.

The 18-year-old lady is pregnant by her boyfriend, but she is having relationship trouble with him right now. She left Liberal, Kansas this morning, fully intending to have an abortion today. However, after looking at the literature and talking to Jennifer and Mary LaFrancis, she completely changed her mind about having an abortion.

Jennifer thinks that her viewing of the Truth-truck images (at Jennifer's urging), while parked near Tiller's gate, had a lot to do with her decision not to go through with the abortion. Jennifer was able to use the Truth-truck images in much the same way as a teacher in a classroom uses a chalkboard.

Because both of these Hispanic ladies had some difficulty with English, Jennifer called her bi-lingual friend, Rhonda, (See Lady Valentina's Story under the NEWS tab of this website - May 26, 2008). Rhonda talked to each of them individually and at length, via Jennifer's cell phone.

After talking about 15 minutes at Tiller's Gate, the 20-year-old lady, got out of her car, and walked into Tiller's building alone. As she left, the 18-year-old driver, told her friend, in Spanish, to meet her at Choices Medical Clinic.

The 18-year-old then drove next door to the Choice Medical Clinic Parking Lot and went inside.

After being in the proLife Choices Medical Clinic, for a short time, the 18-year-old came back out to get something from her car. At that point in time, she came back to Tiller's gate - gave Jennifer a hug, and talked in more detail to Jennifer. She was obviously in an emotional state, but happy with the decision that she had just made! No woman really wants to kill her baby, and this young lady realized the importance of the decision at hand.

After talking to Jennifer, the 18 year-old went back in to Choices Medical Clinic and stayed in there for over an hour.

Mary LaFrancis had to leave on her trip back to Iowa, but Jennifer stayed through the afternoon to deal with the situation. Margaret Mans' shift started when Mary LaFrancis' shift ended.

When the 18-year-old came out of Choices Medical Clinic, at about 3:30 pm, Margaret Mans offered her a baby blanket, and she gladly accepted it. However, she was concerned that her friend was having an abortion at Tiller's ...which, as we later learned, was exactly the case.

While waiting at the gate, Jennifer and the 18-year-old made plans to go out to get something to eat, prior to her long drive back to Liberal, Kansas.

Telling Jennifer that she would be right back, the 18-year-old went into Tiller's facility, to check on her friend, and to let her know that she was leaving to get something to eat with Jennifer.

However, she did not come back to the gate as anticipated.
