Every day pregnancy centers are offering compassion, hope, and help to women and men facing pregnancy decisions.
Lansdowne, VA (PRWEB) August 26, 2015
Over 73,000 lives were saved in the last year through Care Net’s national network of over 1,100 affiliated pregnancy centers. This brings the grand total over the last seven years to 462,089 lives saved.
This data, among other accomplishments, was released today in Care Net’s new "2015 Impact Report," which is created from data collected annually from Care Net’s affiliated pregnancy centers and Care Net’s Pregnancy Decision Line, the only national hotline providing immediate pregnancy decision coaching.
One of the most important accomplishments over these last seven years is that eight of ten women considering abortion when they enter a Care Net pregnancy center choose life. Additionally, centers have provided 698,649 no-cost ultrasound scans, 828,190 clients have received parenting support and education, more than 1.2 million people heard the Gospel, more than 1.2 million people received material resources, and 2.1 million no-cost pregnancy tests were given at the centers.
Roland Warren, Care Net President and CEO, stated, “Every day pregnancy centers are offering compassion, hope, and help to women and men facing pregnancy decisions. This free support enables those considering abortion to know there are realistic alternatives to abortion, and that they will have the support structure they need to choose life for their child and abundant life for their families.”
Warren added, “Approximately 1,130 Care Net affiliated pregnancy centers welcome those facing unplanned pregnancies with life-arming compassion, hope, and help. Every year about 30,000 people volunteer at these pregnancy centers. And since 2009, there has been a 37 percent growth in the number of Care Net centers providing no-cost ultrasounds to their clients.”
