Care Net

Care Net Care Net offers compassion, help, and hope to women and men facing pregnancy decisions.
Each day, 3,300 women wake up in America believing abortion is the only realistic solution to an unplanned pregnancy. Not only does abortion end an innocent human life, it deeply affects many the many mothers, fathers, grandparents and others who regret their involvement in abortion. While legal and public policy efforts to curtail abortion are very important, Care Net's focus is on empowering women and men to make life-affirming choices. While legal efforts will continue for years to come, hundreds of lives are being saved every day through the personal connections made at pregnancy centers. We invite you to join us!

Easier than you think: Ten ways you can offer support to foster families

"There are over 400,000 children in foster care, children who need love and caregivers who need help. But how does someone who can’t be a foster parent still offer support to foster families? The good news is, it’s easier than you think."

The goal of foster care is reunification. People are needed who are willing to take these children in, and for the communities around them to offer support.

Life Decisions Need Life Support: How Your Giving Transformed Kara's Life and Saved Her Baby

The support the hotline coach provided Kara gave her the courage to talk to her friends and family. This was the first big step in her journey toward an abundant life.

Three years later, Kara is working on her college education while parenting a beautiful little girl named Emma. She is forever grateful that she called PDL.

A tear slipped down 18 year old Kara’s cheek as the pregnancy test blinked “positive” on her bathroom vanity. She had suspected the pregnancy for a while but denial had kept her from taking the test. Kara continued to cry in despair when she realized she was already 16 weeks along.

Celia’s Choice: How you helped Celia choose life for her baby now and for eternity!

If you met Celia*, she’d probably be the last person you’d expect to consider abortion. She’s a Christian, actively attends her local church, and believes that God has a plan for her life.

Yet, that’s exactly what happened when Celia found out she was pregnant. She loved the child growing inside her but couldn’t see bringing a baby into the world at that time or in that way. As she looked at her circumstances, she believed that abortion would be the kindest and most merciful decision for her child.

Preparing for the End of Roe v. Wade

As Pro Abundant Life people, we understand that it’s not just about saving a baby, but about raising a child.

Because the only source of true and lasting transformation is the Gospel, we lead people into transformative relationships with Jesus Christ.

Because 86% of abortions in the United States are among unmarried women, we promote healthy marriage as a critical factor in preventing abortions and as the optimal environment to raise children.

Because the father of an unborn baby if the most influential factor in a mother’s decision to abort, we work to break the cycle of abortion by engaging fathers.

Because our culture-at-large no longer values the sanctity of human life and the sanctity of the family as God designed it, we seek to influence the culture by transforming hearts and minds.

You and I are different because we are Pro Abundant Life.

While many of us in the pro-life movement are excited about the possibility of Roe v. Wade being overturned in the foreseeable future, there is an important question we must ask ourselves during this pivotal time: Are we prepared for a post-Roe v. Wade society?

Amazon's Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, was born to a teen mom

"There’s no denying that teenagers who get pregnant will have to face obstacles and difficulties — but that doesn’t mean the answer is abortion. What they need is support, like the support Bezos' mom had from her family, and options to give them the opportunity to give the gift of adoption or to parent their child while continuing to get their education."

Jeff Bezos was only able to become the richest man in the world because his teenage mother chose life and had support from her family.

The Apostle Peter’s “Abortion” Decision

"Over the years, I have spoken to countless women and men who have aborted their little ones. Not surprisingly, when they recount their stories, they have much in common with Peter’s dilemma.

Despite the pro-choice messaging that often declares that the life in the womb is just a “glob of cells,” they didn’t really believe this when they had their abortions. They knew that the baby was a life. But the baby was a life worth sacrificing because to them, at the time, the circumstances of their pregnancy made it so."

Peter knew Jesus was not just a life, but also the Way, the Truth, and the Life. But at that moment, Jesus was a life worth sacrificing.
