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.

Help Pregnancy Centers Through Prayer This Week

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?

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
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!

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.
