Make a Difference for Life on #GivingTuesday2019!

Donors and supporters are necessary to keep our doors open and to reach these women and save the lives of their unborn babies. As we approach #GivingTuesday2019, we ask you to help us help the women of our community. Help us reach them, help us teach them. This special international day of giving takes place Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2019. We want to be the first stop for women like Sandra, who recently came to True Care undecided as to the outcome of her pregnancy. Read her story on this blog.
Standing on God's Promises
tags: True Care Casper WY, non-profit mission, donations, pro-life, pregnancy center support
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.
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.
Adopt-A-College-Student: Encouraging Women to Continue Their Pregnancies and Their Education
tags: abortion, going to college while pregnant, college and abortion, empowering women, True Care Casper WY
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.

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.

Hope comes from God, and we at True Care are the instruments He uses to provide that hope.

Read about a recent patient who found hope at True Care and learn why what we do matters.
Without an engaged, supportive community, without people who believe in the pro-life mission, pregnancy centers like True Care could not help the hundreds of women who experience an unplanned pregnancy ... nor their unborn children. How can you be active, engaged, and supportive to True Care, and therefore, to the women and pre-born of our community? Read our blog post to find out.

New Study Reveals Greater Success in Abortion Pill Reversal

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.
How You Can Help True Care This Spring - Part 2

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. Read our blog to learn more and join us in the battle for life!
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.
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.
True Care Expands Medical Services with Abortion Pill Reversal
tags: abortion pill reversal, True Care Casper, abortion pill, pregnancy centers, pro-life, Wyoming pregnancy centers
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!
