Church Engagement

Abortion in the Church

At Care Net, we believe that “life decisions need life support,” and the church is God’s instrument to provide life support to women, men, and families to empower them to choose life for their unborn children and abundant life for their families.

James 1:27 compels us to care for orphans (who are children without fathers) and widows (who are women without husbands). Accordingly, God created His church to, among other things, fight to protect the unborn, end abortion, and strengthen families.
However, according to data from The Guttmacher Institute, 54% of women who have abortions identify themselves as Christians. Our research found that 4 in 10 women were regularly attending church at the time of their abortion.

These high numbers are a challenge and an opportunity for the church to become more actively involved in saving the unborn from abortion and ministering to women and men with abortions in their past.

The Solutions – Making Life Disciples and Abortion Recovery and Care

    Abortion Recovery and Care

    Many people are aware of the physical effects an abortion can cause, but few people are told about the emotional effects that can occur. By engaging in post-abortion care, both women and men can get support and understanding for their healing and find a path to recovery.

    Care Net’s after-abortion care and services connect women and men impacted by abortion with individual ministries, pregnancy centers, and churches that provide healing resources.
