Care Net operates approximately 1,200 pro-life pregnancy help centers, where women can get a free pregnancy test, undergo an ultrasound, and get counseling about their pregnancy options. The network has served nearly 3 million clients since 2008.
Roland Warren, who leads Care Net, says the mission goes beyond helping women. The organization partners with churches through Making Life Disciples, a curriculum that helps train church members to counsel pregnant women. That partnership is especially important, Warren says, because statistics show many women sitting in the pews experienced an abortion in the past.
“And those groups can be about us loving us,” he says, “but what we want is those small groups loving them.”
Regarding the impact of a local pregnancy center, the Charlotte Lozier Institute estimated 828,000 babies were saved from abortion according to data from 2016 to 2020.
Dr. Moira Gaul, who led that study at Lozier, says the centers help approximately two million people annually with everything from prenatal care to parenting classes.
