World magazine — Texas moves government healthcare funding away from Planned Parenthood, the abortion provider goes to court to keep its place at the trough.

Fifteen years ago Cynthia Wenz of Houston had her third abortion. Two weeks later, with Wenz’s uterus still enlarged, a technician advised that they repeat the procedure.

“We probably didn’t get everything,” the technician told her. Wenz shot back: “Wait a minute. What do you mean? Can I see what’s in there?”

During the ultrasound procedure Wenz requested, technician after technician couldn’t get a clear image. Wenz wondered aloud what was going on. A doctor replied that the baby was moving too fast up and down the birth canal. “Excuse me?” Wenz gasped. “What baby?”

Wenz, then 29, had been carrying twins. She gave birth to a 31-week-old boy weighing 4.9 pounds. She named him Roman.

Emotionally devastated, Wenz came to The Source For Women, a Christian pro-life pregnancy resource center in Houston. Eight years after entering the facility as a client, Wenz became its president and chief executive officer.

She is also the mother of three boys. Roman is the oldest.

Last year The Source for Women served 2,800 low-income clients. But that number is expected nearly to double this year with the June opening of a clinic that will provide medical services beyond those found at most crisis pregnancy centers. Wenz says her organization plans to open seven clinics in the Houston area over the next three years. The expansion would allow the organization to serve 17,500 women annually in a county where an average of 24,000 abortions occur each year.
