LANSDOWNE, VA- Forty years after the Roe v. Wade decision, the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion on demand in America, Care Net is launching a prayer initiative. All life-affirming Americans are invited to join Care Net in the Raise Your Hand for Life 40 Days of Prayer Campaign beginning on January 22nd.
Care Net CEO Roland Warren had this to say:
“Forty years of legalized abortion has ended roughly 55 million lives before birth and deeply affected countless families. Healing from the damage of abortion and the power to protect and nurture life are gifts from God for our entire nation. As we look to the future, the individuals and families spared from abortion inspire us to continue to speak up for those who do not have a voice, building transforming relationships in our communities. This prayer initiative is the perfect opportunity to Raise Your Hand for Life as you personally impact your community with a message of compassion and hope for women and men facing unplanned pregnancy.”
Melinda Delahoyde, President of Care Net added:
“For years, Care Net has approached abortion with the compassionate care and practical solutions found at any one of our more than 1,100 pregnancy centers across the nation. Care Net is calling all Americans to join us in prayer for the tremendous work already being done, for the work that remains, and for unity within our communities to reach out to one another with help and hope.”
Warren and Delahoyde provided the following action items for joining Care Net in 40 days of prayer:
- Sign up to join the Raise Your Hand for Life 40 Days of Prayer initiative and receive 40 days of prayer topics.
- “Like” Care Net on Facebook to get the latest prayer, news, and event updates.
- Share the prayer initiative with your friends and family.
Care Net is working to build a culture where every woman receives all the support she needs to welcome her child into life and create her own success story. Last year, Care Net’s faith based pregnancy centers served nearly 400,000 women, offering them free services such as ultrasounds, pregnancy tests, STD tests and counseling services.
