A case study recently published in Issues of Law and Medicine shows an increase in the percentage of successful births using Abortion Pill Reversal (APR), a progesterone protocol to reverse a medical abortion. The study involved more than 750 women who attempted to reverse their abortions after taking the first abortion pill. Using progesterone to halt a medical abortion began more than a decade ago; more than 400 babies have been born since the protocol was first introduced by Dr. George Delgado. Learn more about the APR process and the most recent published study by reading this week's blog post.

True Care cannot do what the clinic does without support. As spring rolls into view, there are several opportunities for people to help us help the women, men, and babies that we serve. Learn about upcoming events by which you can be a hero for those experiencing unplanned pregnancies, those who are vulnerable to abortion.
True Care relies upon donors, churches, individuals, families, and businesses, to help us with our mission: to erase the perceived need for abortion in our community. Some of that support comes through special events. Our annual Baby Bottle Boomerang ended recently, but there are additional opportunities to help True this month.

The Power of Prayer
tags: pro-life, prayer, Christian living, support for pregnancy centers, pregnancy centers, NIFLA
There is power in prayer. We know from Scripture that “we wrestle not against flesh and blood … but against the spiritual forces of evil…” (Ephesians 6:12). And, we know in this world evil runs rampant, but, we are encouraged through God’s word to not give up the good fight – prayer is a weapon we can all employ. Learn more about the need for prayer on behalf of pro-life pregnancy centers like True Care by reading our blog post.
A recent Pregnancy Help News commentary reflects upon the common bond many Christian denominations share: the sanctity of human life. Whether Catholic, mainstream Protestant, or Evangelical, numerous followers of Christ identify as pro-life. That is true in our community, too. Many different churches support our ministry through prayer and donations and they are well represented at our fundraisers. The Bible talks about unity within the body of Christ. Without the varied congregations and individuals, we could not serve the women who walk through our doors. Women like Kelsey. Read about this patient, and the continued need for unity to erase the perceived need for abortion in our community.
We Live in a Dark World - So Let's Celebrate Life!
tags: Abortion, Life, March for Life, Sanctity of Human Life Sunday 2018
In January, 1984 President Ronald Regan issued a proclamation designating Sunday, January 22 as the first National Sanctity of Humane Life Day. On January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion-on-demand in all 50 states. Since then, the third Sunday in January has been observed by churches as Sanctity of Human Life Sunday. This year, the observation takes place on Sunday, January 21. A March for Life takes place not only in Washington, DC this weekend, but also in Casper, Wyoming. Why do we march? Because we're living in a culture of death, and Jesus came to bring life. Read more on this blog post.
Abortion-at-Home: A Frightening Trend Springing Up World Wide
tags: abortion, abortion pill, abortion at home, buying abortion pills online
During the past year, with the phrase “reproductive rights” ringing louder after the 2016 election, websites have sprung up encouraging women to purchase abortion pills online. There are many dangers to women who pursue this option, but still, many choose to abort at home. Read our post on the dangers and the need for fervent prayer.
Pregnancy centers matter. We are here for women in our community who experience an unplanned pregnancy and consider abortion. Through our services, they learn the truth about their pregnancies with medical consultations, options education, ultrasound, and STD testing. Women like 31-year-old Tosha. Read her story and consider a year-end gift to our ministry so we can continue helping women like her that are scared and need hope and confidence to carry their babies to term.

For the past few weeks, many of us have focused on our blessings, giving thanks to the Lord who supplies us with all good things (James 1:17) -- that is the purpose of Thanksgiving. Today is Cyber Monday and last Friday was Black Friday. Tomorrow is GivingTuesday, and you have opportunity to help True Care meet a God-sized financial goal! Read more about True Care's services, a bit of history, and how you can join us in reaching our one-day goal and impacting our mission to erase the perceived need for abortion in our community.
November is known for many observations, especially Thanksgiving. It’s also known as a time that retail businesses bombard us with advertisements to spend money. However, there is another special day that encourages helping others -- it's called GivingTuesday. True Care will participate for the second time, hoping to raise $10,000 on this one day to continue helping women who experience unplanned pregnancies. Learn more about this endeavor and how you can be part of changing and saving lives on our latest blog post.
Help Pregnancy Centers Through Prayer This Week
tags: Planned Parenthood, abortion, Casper WY, pregnancy centers, attacks on pregnancy centers
Starting Oct. 23, pro-life pregnancy centers across the United States are preparing for an onslaught of attacks by supposed “choice” organizations -- supporters of Planned Parenthood, including Lady Parts Justice League, NARAL Pro-Choice America and many of its state affiliates, Abortion Care Network, and many others. These attacks are under the guise of “Exposing Fake Clinics,” the label these groups have given pregnancy medical resource centers like True Care. What are these attacks about and how can you help? Read our blog post to learn more.
What is Abortion Recovery?
tags: abortion, abortion healing, abortion recovery, SaveOne, Her Choice to Heal, affects of abortion, Casper WY
Abortion recovery programs provide women (and men) emotionally affected by abortion the opportunity to find healing and closure. Such programs help women and men recover spiritually, mentally, and emotionally after the choice of abortion. It can often be years, even decades, before a person seeks help and healing. Sadly, many never do, perhaps because they are not aware help is available. Read this blog post to find out more about such programs and where, if you or someone you know has experienced abortion and needs to find closure and healing, can receive that help in a loving, compassionate manner.
Pregnancy Centers Offer REAL Choice for Women Facing Unplanned Pregnancies
tags: abortion, pregnancy choices, abortion pill reversal, pro-life, pro-choice, Pregnancy Help News, California Board of Registered Nursing
In July, the California Board of Registered Nursing approved continuing education classes for nurses on abortion pill reversal. Last week, the organization had a reversal of its own – its previous decision. Abortion advocates, such as Planned Parenthood, who tout “choice” in their verbiage, don’t seem to be about choice at all. If they were, why dissuade a board of nursing from offering “choice” by instructing nurses on the procedures for abortion pill reversal? Pregnancy centers, like True Care, offer real choice, providing information and medical services a woman needs without making money from her decision. Read more about the facts of real choice, including abortion pill reversal, on this week's blog.
The Benefits of Volunteering
tags: pregnancy centers, prolife, volunteering, saving the unborn, making a difference, volunteering at a pregnancy center
When a person volunteers their time and talent, benefits are reaped, for both the server and the one being served. Christians derive an added benefit: serving others serves the Lord – remember what Jesus said in Matthew 25:40: “Whatever you did for one of the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you did for me.” True Care needs volunteers. Read our blog to learn more and to learn about some of the benefits one woman who who volunteers at a pregnancy center receives from her service to women walking through those doors.
The Benefits of a Resource Program
tags: pregnancy centers, pro-life, resources to help pregnant women, abortion
Nearly four years ago, True Care Women’s Resource Center partnered with what is now known as the Healthy Birth and Infant Brains (HBIB) Foundation to help women have healthier babies. The mission of True Care – to erase the perceived need for abortion by effectively serving pregnant, at risk women, turning their fears into confidence – aligns with the mission of the HBIB Foundation – to help women have healthy pregnancies and lessen the chances of learning disabilities and developmental delays in children. By connecting pregnant women with community resources, agencies and organizations that can meet their various needs, True Care’s patients find the confidence they need to carry their babies to term, erasing that perceived need for abortion. Learn more about the importance and benefits of a resource program for pro-life pregnancy centers like True Care on this week's blog.
"Fake Clinic" Campaign Reminds Us We're in a Battle

During the last weeks of July, pro-abortion groups rallied like-minded people to protest, pose as fake clients, and leave negative online reviews, all endeavors to attack pregnancy centers across the country. This organized "fake clinic" campaign reminds us as pregnancy centers and pro-life advocates that we are engaged in a spiritual battle and we need to put on the full armor of God daily.

True Care Expands Medical Services with Abortion Pill Reversal

When True Care Women’s Resource Center in Casper, Wyoming became a medical clinic 12 years ago, we envisioned helping more abortion-minded women see the truth of life via ultrasound. We wanted to become more relevant to our target audience by offering important medical services at no cost. Beginning this week, we are expanding our medical services to include Abortion Pill Reversal, a new treatment for women who have started a chemical (or medical) abortion and regret that decision. Many people don’t realize that the abortion pill can sometimes be reversed. The reversal process is called Pregnancy Sustaining Progesterone Therapy (PSPT) or Abortion Pill Reversal, and starting tomorrow, July 11, 2017, True Care's staff will be offering this treatment to women who thought abortion was their best option but now regret that choice. Read our post to learn more!

The Closing of Wyoming’s Planned Parenthood Clinic and What That Means for the State’s Pro-life Movement
tags: abortion, wyoming, Planned Parenthood Casper, prolife, pregnancy centers, unplanned pregnancy options
Last week’s Casper Star Tribune headline announcing the closing of Wyoming’s only Planned Parenthood (PP) clinic not only made Wyoming news, but also national news. The clinic, located in Casper, will shut its doors for good in July. Planned Parenthood clinics across the country are shutting their doors, including two in Colorado, three in New Mexico, and four in Iowa; several of these facilities don’t perform abortions, but, as is the case at the Casper clinic, PP staff refer clients for abortion elsewhere. Pro-life medical pregnancy centers can fill in the gap in many ways. Find out how and find out how prolife individuals and churches can help.
A Division in Faith as well as Politics

Many people who claim to be Christians are proponents of abortion, or at least of being pro-choice. How does one meld faith in Christ and the Heavenly Father with the act of abortion? Read our blog post this week to see what we have learned about the subject and some Biblical principals we who trust in Christ should apply in every aspect of our lives, including the discussion of abortion with others.
Studies show young people are delaying marriage, or planning to not marry at all, in greater numbers. Findings also suggest that American young people are living together unmarried and raising children outside of marriage in increasing numbers. In fact, data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) shows the percentage of births to unmarried American women two years ago was more than 40 percent. Additionally, the Guttmacher Institute found that most women seeking an abortion were in their twenties and thirties. Learn more about these trends on this blog post.

Without partnerships in our community, including churches, organizations, individuals and families, True Care couldn't do the work that God has called us to do. Does your church partner with True Care? Are you an advocate for the organization? Learn more about how groups, individuals, and families do, and can, help True Care help women in Casper and beyond who experience an unplanned pregnancy, and what opportunites loom on the horizon for new opportunities for vital partnerships, including the recent Hymn Sing for Life.

In this day and age of electronic communications, from email to Facebook, from blogs to Twitter, impacts (both good and bad) reverberate around the internet. Reviews by customers are another way to impact a business or organization online. And, lately, a series of “bad reviews” have bombarded pregnancy centers, including True Care.

One of the most hotly debated topics in our political sphere this year is the potential defunding of Planned Parenthood. But what is Planned Parenthood and why should we care?
