When Brandi David discovered she was pregnant, she knew she wanted an abortion. Brandi was a graduate student at the time and didn't feel ready to be a mother. She wasn't sure where to go for help. But then she remembered a billboard at a busy intersection in South Bend, Indiana that she had driven by many times. It said: "Pregnant? We can help." So she called the number.
