As Care Net has grown, so has our mission. Care Net–in addition to supporting a network of affiliated pregnancy resource centers by providing training resources, advocacy, and consultations–Care Net ministers directly to women and men facing pregnancy decisions through our Pregnancy Decision Line contact center and website, www.pregnancydecisionline.org. The contact center has trained coaches and receives phone calls and emails from those seeking or considering abortion. Pregnancy Decision Line has become one of the most effective ways to reach the most abortion-vulnerable women – 18-24 year olds. Women and men considering abortion are going online for help – and there they find Care Net’s Pregnancy Decision Line ready to support them immediately to bring them to a life-affirming decision at their point of need.
In 2016 Care Net developed and published the only curriculum made specifically to assist the church in ministering to those considering abortion. The Making Life Disciples program is supported by Care Net’s Executive Director of Church Engagement, and a national network of community-based program manager.
