It can be difficult to keep up with everything going on at Your Options, especially for our donors and volunteers who aren’t at our centers on a daily basis. Fortunately, we make it easy for you, with multiple ways to stay up to date!
Three New Registered Nurses!
We recently welcomed three new registered nurses who will go through their ultrasound training in early May. Sonography training involves two weeks of training followed by completing a mandatory number of ultrasounds prior to sonographer certification.
We are looking for pregnant women between 5-20 weeks to be ultrasound models. Please complete the contact form if you are interested in receiving a free ultrasound.
CompassCare Linear Service Model
Exciting changes to our patient platform are on the horizon! These changes will offer more effective counseling to abortion vulnerable women and also provide volunteer opportunities that can make an impact for life in as little as four hours per week! Another benefit of participating in this linear service model is that we can co-employ medical staff with other centers in the area using the same model – with collaboration everyone wins! We will keep you posted!
Entire societies can be changed by a conversation. One ordinary morning, Christina Bennett’s mother revealed a secret she kept hidden for decades. In the early 1980’s her mother had an appointment at Mt. Sinai hospital in Hartford, CT. Pregnant, alone and afraid, she scheduled an abortion. A counselor assured her she was making the right choice. Moments before the procedure, an African-American janitor saw her crying and said, “Do you want to have this baby?” “Yes,” she replied. “Then God will give you the strength” she said. Moments later the doctor called Christina’s mother into his office. She told him she changed her mind and wanted to leave. To her dismay, the doctor demanded she stay, insisted it was too late and told her she had to go through with the abortion. With strength from above, her mom walked out.
“My mother saved my life that day,” says Christina.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘Our lives begin to die the day we become silent about things that matter’. Christina is alive today because a stranger refused to be silent. Her testimony encourages others to join in conversations and be the change our world needs.
With a B.S degree in Business Communications, Christina works for a non-profit organization that serves pregnant women and their families in crisis. She is a blogger at LiveActionNews and her work has appeared in LifeSiteNews, LifeNews and the Bound4Life blog.
