Our Work in 2020

As we approach the close of the first quarter in 2020, we reflect upon the work God has been doing in this new decade and where we plan to go in the near future.

From January to the end of February, we saw 56 patients, 50 of whom had positive pregnancy tests. Forty-two unborn lives have been saved so far.

Desi’s Story

“Desi” seriously considered abortion when she first came to see us earlier this year. The 27-year-old already had two children and was sharing a house with three other people.

“My situation just isn’t ideal to bring a baby into the mix,” the young woman told her Advocate. “Finances are a big concern and I work a job that involves a lot of heavy lifting. I can’t stop working. My boyfriend is around but is pretty irresponsible.”

She was too early in her pregnancy for the nurses to conduct an ultrasound, therefore, Desi was rescheduled for another week. When she returned, she told her Advocate she felt “conflicted” about having an abortion. “My mind tells me it’s the best decision, but in my heart, I don’t feel that’s true,” she said.

Upon seeing the image of her eight-week-old unborn on the screen, Desi became very emotional. She and her Advocate talked about faith, and our patient said she had been baptized and believed in God’s love and grace. Her Advocate encouraged her to listen to the Holy Spirit and to read Scripture to discern God’s will for her life. Desi allowed her Advocate to pray for her, accepted a Bible, and when she learned about Embrace Grace, she said, “I think that’s what I need. I want to sign up.” She left undecided as to the outcome of her pregnancy.

The following week, Desi contacted True Care’s Resource Coordinator, Cheryl, and listened as she shared her abortion story. She began asking questions and upon learning about the numerous community organizations available to assist her, Desi said, “I believe I’ll parent after all.”

She signed up for True Care’s Baby & Me Too Program, the Resource Program, and she attended the first meeting of Embrace Grace at a local church just this week! We are grateful Desi followed the prompting of her heart, spared her life from the pain of abortion, and saved the life of her child!

True Care Exists Because of Our Friends

Desi is just one of thousands of women whom True Care has served in our 32 years in Casper. Because of donors and prayer warriors like you, we return to the battlefront daily to fight for women and their unborn,, offering them medical services, options consultations, resources, and programs to help them choose life.

We recently completed our 2020 Baby Bottle Boomerang Casper fundraising event (the Converse County churches conduct the fundraiser from Mother’s Day to Father’s Day). Thanks to numerous supporters, we raised more than $34,700.00!

Hymn Sing for Life takes place Sunday afternoon, March 29. This will be our 4th year, thanks to our host, Grace Reformed Church. This year’s event will be held at Highland Park Community Church, starting at 4 pm. Casper College Dean of Music & Humanities, Eric Unruh, is the featured artist. Join us for this family-friendly, fun event and vote for your favorite hymn with your checkbook!

This month we begin a new online marketing adventure, bringing more women to our website through a major Google ad campaign. More women are searching online to purchase abortion pills, and we want to be the first website women in our area discover when they search for words like “abortion at home,” “DIY abortion,” or “Plan C.” Such an endeavor costs thousands of dollars. One generous donor has offered to off-set half the cost; we need funds to match that offer so we can plan an entire year’s campaign to reach these women. We hope you’ll consider joining this effort. A letter recently went out about this marketing effort.

We cannot do our work without you, and we are grateful to all of our donors, friends, and prayer warriors. Thank you for letting us be here for women like Desi!
