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!
Our Care Net community page celebrates courageous life affirming choices and provides news and views on a wide variety of life issues. Join us and share your perspective, too.
Mission: Mission: Acknowledging that every human life begins at conception and is worthy of protection, Care Net offers compassion, hope, and help to anyone considering abortion by presenting them with realistic alternatives and Christ-centered support through our life-affirming network of pregnancy centers, organizations, and individuals. Vision: Care Net envisions a culture where women and men faced with pregnancy decisions are transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ and empowered to choose life for their unborn children and abundant life for their families.

What do you do when you are put in a position where you have to defend your pro-life beliefs?
When you see questions like the one above, do you find yourself getting nervous or fearful that you might not adequately communicate your stance? Maybe you just avoid the situation altogether and hope that the conversation will pass. Maybe you want to share your beliefs convincingly but feel like you can’t find the right words to say.
We all experience these kinds of situations, and it can be extremely frustrating. The great news is, you don't have to feel this way. In fact, we want to equip you with a clear, gracious, and easy-to-understand argument so that you can effectively explain the value of unborn life.
To do this, Care Net partnered with the Equal Rights Institute (ERI), a leading trainer of pro-life advocates in the country, to create this video for you. With logic and compassion, Josh Brahm of ERI explains how our desire for equality and human rights should compel us to defend and protect the unborn. You will learn about the “equal right to life community” and why the unborn, just like you and I, should be included in it… and why other living things, like squirrels, should not be included in it.
Watch the video below. In just 8 minutes, you will have a clear, concise, and persuasive way to explain why you are pro-life and why it matters!
