Care Net was formed in order to start operations throughout the country that would help reduce and eliminate abortion -- and Delahoyde says the growth has been rapid. "We have 1,100 centers now across the country, and that has grown from 650 just four years ago," she details.


Care Net is currently networking with other pro-life groups to make a major impact in the areas where the help is most needed. "We're ... reaching out to urban metropolitan areas, college areas, underserved areas where there's a high risk for abortion ...," she points out.

Care Net reaching out to new areas


The pro-life group Care Net has a new president. Melinda Delahoyde, formerly of Americans United for Life, says she sees a strong future for the pro-life movement irrespective of Congress and the courts.

One of the strongest parts of the strategy is to make sure there is more of a pro-life message in areas heavily dominated by the abortion philosophy, and that includes colleges. Delahoyde adds her group is now using Internet advertising as an additional strategy to let women know they can give their babies life.


"By using keyword advertising we are able to reach those younger women who think they might be pregnant, ... [who are] scared [and] don't know where to turn," Delahoyde continues. She says when web users now conduct an online search for abortion, Care Net's call center website information will be displayed.


Delahoyde says Care Net will also be reaching out to minority neighborhoods where the "abortion philosophy has reigned supreme."
