The War Rages as Use of Abortion Pill Rises: True Care Responds
tags: abortion pill, abortion pills by mail, Heartbeat International, abortion pill side effects, medical complications from the abortion pill
Two recent reports released by Heartbeat International show a significant rise in the percentage of abortions done using the abortion pill. These drugs, Mifeprex and Misoprostol, pose dangers not readily discussed by medical professionals and the media, and now online sites are side-stepping safety and selling the drugs online. True Care provides truthful information about the potential risks to women from these drugs, and we are educating women using credible medical reports and organizations. Learn more on our blog about the risks and how we are responding with critical education.

Partnerships are critical to the work done at True Care Women's Resource Center. Individuals, families, churches, businesses, regional and national pro-life organizations -- each and every entity is vital to help us accomplish our mission and to meet the needs of women experiencing unplanned pregnancies. Did you know there are more than 1,700 pregnancy help organizations affiliated with the national organization, Heartbeat International, in the United States? We are one of those. Because of those centers, and people who support them, nearly 400,000 women chose life for their unborn. Learn more about the importance of partnerships in pro-life ministry on our blog.

True Care's Walk for Life 2021 takes place Saturday, June 5, starting at 9 am.

Meet some of the "reasons" as well as two of our walkers on our blog post this week who share their 'whys.' Perhaps you'll discover your 'why' to walk this year, too! We're providing a link to register on the blog post as well. Check it all out!
Why True Care Remains on the Front Line
tags: abortion pill, benefits of a pregnancy center, ACOG, FDA, pills by post
The FDA pivoted its course this week on requiring women who take the abortion pill to receive a chemical abortion in a face-to-face appointment at a health care clinic. The agency plans to allow women to obtain the drug mifepristone by mail, similar to what England implemented last year. The move is supposedly temporary, using the on-going COVID pandemic as an excuse. Read more about concerns regarding this about-face on our blog.This is one reason True Care remains on the front line.

Pregnancy centers across the country have seen an increase in the number of abortion-determined women.

Because of your support, True Care staff met with women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and answered their questions, introduced them to their unborn via ultrasound, and provided them with much-needed resources and encouragement. We also distributed grocery gift cards and diapers. We provided hope at a time when they needed it most. We did all this amid COVID-19 because of your support.
We recently celebrated Memorial Day, honoring the hundreds of thousands of military men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. People who serve on the front lines know the courage it takes to engage in battle. Even amid this fight against COVID-19, we witness healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, scientists, and others courageously serving the rest of us – some have died in that service. Whether it’s a war against another country or a life-threatening disease, courage is required. Bravery is also required to fight the battle for life.

This year's Walk for Life looks different because our world is different. The COVID-19 health crisis has changed the way most of us conduct our lives. Federal, state, and local governments issued guidelines about two months ago to help prevent the spread of the virus; those guidelines included no gatherings of more than 10. Since our event usually draws 100 to 200 people, instead of gathering as a large group, we are encouraging supporters to conduct their own personal Walk for Life. You can still be a superhero for life in 2020!

Standing on God's Promises

Each day True Care staff and volunteers gather for prayer before opening our doors to patients. We pray for the women who have appointments; we pray for each other; and we pray for our supporters. We thank God daily for those who stand beside us, and we thank Him for his presence in our ministry. We thank Him for all the promises He gives. Pro-life work isn’t easy. Yet, even in darkness the light shines, through our abortion recovery program and even simply in the love and compassion bestowed on our patients. Many, even those who go through with an abortion, return for another pregnancy because of the love of Christ lavished upon them. As we enter the last quarter of the year, we continue standing on God’s promises.
A Reflection on the Abortion Industry’s Attempt to Squelch Organizational Freedoms

Nearly one year ago, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) affirmed the rights of pregnancy centers by striking down a state law that violated basic freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution. That ruling affirmed the rights of free speech and freedom of religion. Despite this important court decision, abortion activities continue to stir their supporters with false narratives such as 'expose fake clinics.' The battle for life continues.

Earlier this month, True Care hosted a large fundraising event, our annual Walk for Life. The endeavor brings together supporters from across the community, making a public stand to save unborn lives and empower the mothers who carry those babies. In April, Grace Reformed Church at City Park hosted a fundraising event for True Care called Hymn Sing for Life. Once again, people from around the community came out to support the important work we do. Both fundraising endeavors involved young people, and we are thankful for the youth and children who choose to stand for life.
This blog post is written by Hannah Tippin, a student attending the University of Wyoming, who participated in the April Hymn Sing. She used this writing as part of a class assignment regarding a service project, and she graciously said yes to having it posted on our blog.

True Care sees patients who attend institutions of higher education and plan to abort their pregnancies because of school. Finances play into that as well. Whether it is the fear of losing a scholarship or concerns about pursuing an education while pregnant, some women believe they have to choose one or the other: school or baby. However, that isn’t true, and at True Care, we strive to help young women understand that.

"Unplanned" Shines the Light on the Darkness of Abortion
tags: abortion, pro-life movie, Unplanned, Abby Johnson, abortion healing
Abby Johnson’s story is compelling. A former Planned Parenthood clinic director in Texas – she even won an Employee of the Year award – this young woman walked away from money and prestige after witnessing an abortion. She once believed she and the organization she worked for were helping women, but her mind and heart opened to the truth of what abortion does to women … and to the unborn. Thanks to brave people like Abby and the producers, writers, and directors of PureFlix, God’s light of love, mercy, and truth will be broadcast throughout the country. We can help that light shine.
As we know, late-term abortion has become the new “normal” these days. Ever since New York passed a law allowing the procedure into the 8th and 9th months, more states have taken up the infanticide mantel, including Virginia, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Colorado also has a late-term abortionist. Still, we in the pro-life arena have much to praise God about!
Scripture tells us, “Thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 15:57). Sometimes we humans dismiss the small wins. At True Care, we do celebrate victories, large and small. Read about some of those, including a legislative win for pro-life supporters, on our blog this week.

Through a partnership with Paradise Valley Christian Church, True Care is launching a new program, Embrace Grace, which seeks to bring single women who experience an unplanned pregnancy closer to God. The Bible tells us that “all sin and fall short of the glory of God” (see Romans 3:23). Many times, women with unplanned pregnancies feel judged by the church. Through Embrace Grace, they will find love and grace through a relationship with Christ and through the love poured upon them by the church. Learn more about this exciting new endeavor on this week's blog post.
Higher Education and Pregnancy: Sometimes at Odds

The U.S. Census Bureau reports that 80 percent of single-parent households are headed by women, and 40 percent of children in such a situation live in poverty. Therefore, higher education for pregnant and single moms is vital to lift both out of poverty. The Guttmacher Institute has reported that more than 40 percent of Planned Parenthood clients either were attending college or had some college education and another 35 percent were in or had graduated high school. These students need to know they can still get an education while pregnant or parenting. True Care and others are responding to that need.
In a world that celebrates the death of unborn children, those on the front lines to protect life can feel like a tidal wave of darkness is about to drown us. Late-term abortions happen in six states and the District of Columbia. How do pro-life people, including pregnancy center staff and volunteers, shine a loving light upon a dark culture?

The Power of Prayer

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
