For years Peggy Fortner of St. Joseph, MO, has done volunteer work in pregnancy resource centers … and is still doing it. Her daughter, Lori Hendrick … and our daughter-in-law, son Stephen Hendrick’s wife … has “picked up the baton,” having spent years in some form of ministry to also save unborn children.
Among several point of encouraging conversation, we reference another story out of St. Joseph. Then Senator Delbert Scott, on the floor of the Missouri Senate — advocating strong legislation to save the lives of the unborn – told of a young woman who became pregnant without the benefit of a husband. Instead of destroying the baby girl, she traveled south to Kansas City to find a home for her baby and, then, handed it over to a loving couple.
Senator Scott – then a Missouri Senator and now a college president .. told his fellow Senators … and the world … that the baby that was saved was his grandmother! I asked Delbert to do a count of the current number of her descendants. The total was more than 100, including him.
We can all be thankful that at the time there was no “Planned Parenthood” available with their bloody knives, always ready to destroy unborn children. This story could have turned out much differently.
