Consider Ebony, a former client at Baltimore's Center for Pregnancy Concerns with whom we spoke. Her story reveals who the real deceivers are.

When she became pregnant as a single unmarried woman, her immediate impulse was to abort. She called a local clinic and was able to schedule an abortion with a phone call. When in the conversation she questioned her ability to pay, she was encouraged to proceed because aborting would be "cheaper" than having the child.

Although she remained set on the abortion, Ebony knew something was wrong. Sitting up late at night, she called a Christian radio show to talk. They referred her to the crisis pregnancy center.

There she was told if she did decide to abort, "they would still help her." And then she saw her baby on a sonogram and it was all over. Her son is now almost four.

Ebony received help with clothes, food, and counseling. She struggles today but wouldn't have it any other way.

On the other side, nationwide purveyors of death deceive young women about "choice."

When some 150 years ago Stephen Douglas argued that states should choose whether or not they would have slaves, Abraham Lincoln replied, "God did not place good and evil before man, telling him to make his choice ... he did tell him there was one tree, of the fruit of which he should not eat, upon pain of certain death."

Pro-choice? Who's the deceiver?
