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.
"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.
Higher Education and Pregnancy: Sometimes at Odds
tags: pregnancy, abortion, going to school while pregnant, attending college while pregnant, scholarships for single moms, scholarships for pregnant women
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?
In the Lord's Army - For Life

Each day, True Care staff and those involved with pregnancy centers across the country put on the armor of God, for we are part of His army for life. One of True Care’s core values is being Christ-centered. Without Christ as our commander-in-chief, pro-life work could not be the force that it is, in our community and in our country. Read more about how that armor helps us help the women who walk through our doors by reading this blog post.
She was assessed as likely to abort when she came for her pregnancy test appointment at True Care. Thirty-year-old Dani worked in the medical profession and had taken a nasty fall at work. She required surgery; then, Dani suspected she was pregnant. The father of her child wanted her to abort. Dani couldn’t believe she was faced with such a choice. Yet, her concerns about the upcoming, needed surgery, taking pain killers while pregnant, and the pressure from the baby’s father made her seriously consider abortion. True Care was there for Dani because you've been there for True Care. Be part of our financial goal on #GivingTuesday, November 27 so together, we can help more "Danis."

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.

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.
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 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.
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.

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.
