Care Net has a network of approximately 1100 affiliated pregnancy centers in all fifty states and Canada, staffed by over 30,000 volunteers. We believe that all women have a right to factual pregnancy and parenting information presented in a caring and compassionate manner, regardless of the choice they will ultimately make. Accordingly, our clinics inform women of the medical effects of carrying a child to term as well as the effects of abortion.
We do this because we believe that women deserve access to the latest medically accurate information regarding their pregnancy decisions.
When women are empowered with compassion and support, many choose life for their unborn children. After visiting a Care Net affiliate, 80% of women considering abortion choose life. In 2015 alone, Care Net pregnancy centers and affiliates saved 70,043 unborn lives! During the past eight years, 531,977 unborn children were saved from abortion due to the valiant efforts of our staff and volunteers.
Every year, we release an impact report detailing the work of our centers to empower women and men in their pregnancy decisions. During the last eight years, Care Net affiliated pregnancy centers have provided more than 800,000 free ultrasounds and 2.3 million pregnancy tests.
Care Net support does not end once a child is born. During the last eight years, our centers provided more than 940,000 women and men with parenting support and education and 1.4 million with material resources like diapers, clothing, and new car seats.
We do this because we are not only pro-life, but pro Abundant Life. This means supporting women and men before, during, and after birth with the resources and information they need to raise children in an environment most conducive to success.
Ultimately, our clients are our best advocates. 98.7 percent of Care Net-affiliated center clients who completed a written exit survey in 2013 indicated that their overall experience at the center was positive. This number was 97% in 2014.
Care Net affiliated pregnancy centers are a vital part of their community and daily offer compassion, hope, and help to those making pregnancy decisions.
