“Either God healed me, or the sonogram was wrong.” That’s the powerful proclamation from a man we spoke with at the March For Life.
Jake, from Fort Worth, Texas, told Faithwire at the 2022 March For Life that his mother was encouraged by doctors to abort him but that she chose life.

“When I was an unborn baby, the doctor asked my mom to abort me … because a sonogram showed that there was a hump on the back of my neck and I’d be really disabled,” he said. “But it turned out the sonogram was wrong.”
Jake said his entire church was praying for him and his mother at the time — and that God either healed him or the sonogram was faulty. Either way, the doctors’ predictions never unfolded.
His mother also spoke with Faithwire and said she’s grateful she ignored doctors’ recommendations.
“When I was four months pregnant with him, the doctors told me to abort him,” she said. “And I am very grateful I didn’t listen to them. Not for an instant.”

Jake also spoke about his reasons for attending the March For Life, citing the ongoing legal battle in Texas over a law restricting abortion at six weeks of pregnancy and his belief that babies’ lives will be saved if Roe is overturned.
“There [are] millions of reasons … when you think about all of the unborn babies that are going to exist if Roe is overturned,” he said of his reasons for attending the massive march. “They are going to be alive because Roe is overturned.”
Jake continued, “I had to show up. I had to march for life this year.”
He also shared another powerful story about pro-life advocate Abby Johnson. Jake was among those who prayed outside Johnson’s former clinic when she was still a Planned Parenthood director.
He was part of 40 Days For Life, which organizes prayers outside of abortion facilities.
“I was praying outside her clinic while she ran Planned Parenthood,” he said.
As the pro-life movement has often heralded, Johnson changed her perspective on abortion and is now one of the most famous and influential pro-life advocates in America.
Jake spoke about the fascinating fact that 40 Days of Life started in Texas and that, years later, Texas is now the first place in America where abortion is capped at six weeks.
He called that development a “testament to the power of prayer.” Watch the interview above to see more of Jake’s story.
