Care Net’s Commitment to the Gospel

Care Net centers understand that pregnancy decisions are an emotional and private choice. Clients can feel confident in the information they receive because it’s backed by research from caring professionals. Affiliated pregnancy centers do not discriminate based on age, race, nationality, religious affiliation, disability or any arbitrary circumstances. Interested clients will always find support in exploring the spiritual dimension of their choices. Center personnel share the love of Jesus Christ in ways that are both practical and personal, and, while caring prayer support is always available to clients, it is never imposed. Care Net centers provide information about all pregnancy options to clients, as well as ongoing practical support for those choosing to parent or place for adoption. For those who experience grief or regret related to a past abortion, abortion recovery programs are available at most centers. The decisions made during times of unplanned pregnancies can be life changing, making it more important than ever that you consider all your choices carefully. PLEASE NOTE: Care Net affiliated pregnancy centers do not perform or refer for abortion and do not profit from any client’s decision.
