Abortion is NOT Medicine

Women do not get abortions because they want one. A woman considering abortion does not do so lightly, or even willingly. She views abortion as a tough, even tragic decision forced on her by circumstances and relationships. Choice means the ability to freely decide between two or more options. CompassCare’s experience is that most women considering abortion do not feel like they have a choice at all. For a woman abortion represents no choice at all.

If a woman feels able to have her baby, then and only then is her decision really a choice. To serve a woman with a goal of anythingShackles less than giving her the ability to say ‘no’ to abortion is mercenary profiteering, plain and simple. Why? Because most abortions are perpetrated upon women under emotional or physical duress with their circumstances holding them hostage to getting an abortion. This is the norm. Therefore, to sell a woman an abortion under the false pretense of ‘choice,’ is like telling a slave his chains are really a path to freedom.

Furthermore, women facing unplanned pregnancy are in desperate need of ethical medical care. Yet abortion ignores the entire purpose of medicine, which is to care for, cure, comfort, and maintain the health of the patient, and never to harm. Abortion damages the healthy functioning of a woman’s reproductive system, for the sole purpose of ending the life of her preborn child. To call abortion ‘medical care’ is similar to saying physical abuse is true love. Yet this upside down manipulation of language has been used, not only to legalize and perpetrate the greatest injustice in history upon the most vulnerable of society, but also to intentionally mislead women facing dire straits…like telling lambs to find shelter from a storm in a den of jackals. Abuse is not love, chains are not freedom, and abortion is NOT medicine.

Our best hope to save preborn boys and girls out of the fire is to free their mothers from coercive pressure by giving them a vision of their future after having had a child. This requires the provision of appropriate services delivered in the most appropriate way. But the questions remain: What are appropriate services and how should they be delivered in order to help more women have their babies? The day NOCompassCare stops bothering to ask these questions would be the first day of a decline into ineffective mediocrity. Answering these questions and helping other organizations to answer them is what keeps CompassCare’s culture of continuous improvement focused on the mission to erase the need for abortion. Continuously improving ensures that each woman has the best chance at a truly free and un-coerced choice, the ability to say, “No” to abortion.

To that end CompassCare is in the midst of developing a revolutionary Medical Process Management (MPM) system called “Optimize!” An MPM is similar to electronic medical records but on steroids, giving almost immediate feedback and quick turnaround on improvements to service delivery. The two main goals of developing this powerful tool are 1) increased efficiency and 2) multiplication of effectiveness. Increased efficiency means CompassCare is able to make life-saving improvements to the way in which at-risk women are served, in a fraction of the time it takes us now. Ease of multiplication speaks to CompassCare’s ability to transfer those life-saving improvements that much faster to other Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRCs), increasing their ability to reach and serve abortion-minded women, thereby ‘multiplying’ CompassCare’s life-saving results. In short the MPM is a powerful tool necessary to reclaim ownership of ‘reproductive health service’ from Planned Parenthood and the multi-billion dollar abortion racket masquerading as medical care—sparing women from abortion exploitation as well as their preborn babies from the horror that otherwise awaits.

Alpha BetaThe first version of the MPM is being tested now. There are four test sites lined up across the country and the MPM will be implemented by the beginning of October to work out any bugs. Once the system is completely tested the plan is to roll it out to PRCs nationwide in November. This project promises to be a major leap forward, not just for CompassCare’s continuous improvement journey, but for the entire movement of pro-life medical service providers with the potential to reach and more effectively help tens of thousands more abortion-minded women to have their babies.

Please continue to pray for the success of the mission and a speedy end to abortion. Please also, consider donating funds toward this powerful project. CompassCare is the best in the nation at figuring out how to reach and serve women considering abortion. This is not a status but a stewardship which is taken very seriously. This Medical Process Management tool will be CompassCare’s equivalent to shouting the good news of pregnancy center effectiveness from the roof tops. I invite you to consider joining us in defraying the costs of this endeavor.

True or False: Abortion Rates Down Are Down in NY

True! Abortions in New York State fell by 18% between 2008 and 2012. Meanwhile Monroe County, home to Rochester, abortion rates dropped by almost twice that-34%! The Rochester abortion trend reversal continues.

  While abortionists are just as plentiful as they ever have been in Rochester, the number of women getting abortions is at its lowest point since the Department of Health began keeping records in 1970. And the women that CompassCare has helped to have their babies account for over 40% of the overall five-year reduction. That means that were it not for your investment in CompassCare’s lifesaving care, the Monroe County abortion statistics would be no different than the rest of New York State, the abortion capital of the U.S.

Rochester is considered an abortion hub, with approximately 25% of all pregnancies ending in abortion. If the numbers continue to drop as they have, we will see a 65% reduction in abortion rates from its recent 2008 high, in just five more years. Thank you for the investment of your time, prayer, and finances. The mission of erasing the need for abortion by transforming women’s fear into confidence is working.

It is because of the generosity of people just like you that CompassCare has been privileged to stay on the cutting edge of reversing the abortion trend. Through marketing, direct patient medical care, thorough follow-up, and  the training of other pregnancy centers, CompassCare is nationally recognized as one of the most effective pregnancy centers in the US.

CompassCare understands that when a woman faces an unplanned pregnancy she feels trapped, as if abortion is her only way out. She is torn between two seemingly conflicting tensions. The primary tension typically is, will she cling to her life as she knows it or allow her baby to continue living. Some feel the fear of not being able to provide the quality of life she thinks the baby should have.  Still others are torn between the guilt of having an abortion and the shame of her friends and family finding out she is pregnant. Only when a woman feels empowered to make the most difficult choice, to have her baby, is she truly making a free choice. Anything less is coercion, not choice. The services provided by CompassCare, and the manner in which those services are provided, are designed to give her a vision of her future after having a child.

CompassCare’s goal is to reach 100% more women than last year. And we are well on the way already seeing over 57% more women at risk for abortion in 2014 compared with the same time frame for 2013.

You are witnessing that for which we have prayed and worked for so many years together: reversal of the abortion trend! Thank you again for your investment in CompassCare. Please consider deepening your investment this year, as together we endeavor to reach even more women and save even more lives and accelerate the reversal of abortion rates in Rochester!

Is It Possible to Reverse an Abortion?

Halt Free Speech RestrictionsAbortion. It seems so…final. To abort, stop, terminate. The decision to end a pregnancy is so difficult for women precisely because they understand that the life of another human being is ending. But women choose abortion anyway because of the crushing weight of the pressures of life and relationships. Bottom line, most women are coerced into having an abortion. They are not free to choose because they believe they have no other choice. School, financial pressures, life plans, her boyfriend and even her parents all factor in to the decision, and she is in fight or flight mode. Every abortion decision represents an actual tragedy, fueled by the despairing loneliness of soul when every direction seems like it results in the end of someone’s life, either hers or the baby’s.

 

But what if this tragedy could be averted? What if a woman could reverse her abortion? What if, after starting down that dead end road to terminating her pregnancy she changes her mind? Is it too late to reverse course or can the baby be saved? What if a crisis intervention process could be invented that could be on call and CompassCare could step in at a moment’s notice to help her save her baby? Proverbs 24:11 says, “Deliver those who are being taken away to death, and those who are staggering to slaughter, Oh hold them back.” What if we could literally pull the child out of the very jaws of death?

 

CompassCare asked these questions and found that the answer is, yes, it is possible to reverse a medical abortion. RU-486 is a two pill abortion drug regimen which costs up to $600 in Rochester. 25% of all the abortions in Monroe Country are medical abortions. CompassCare has just opened another door that was previously closed for women to change their minds and have their babies.

 

numberswiki.com

font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px;” align=”justify”>Here is how the medical abortion works: A woman takes the first pill which kills the baby by blocking a woman’s natural progesterone, a hormone which sustains the ability of the1237682_untitled woman’s body to provide oxygen and nutrients to the baby. She then takes the second pill which expels the baby from the uterus. Case studies published in the Annals of Pharmacotherapy demonstrate that the same pregnancy sustaining progesterone therapy used by doctors to help women with chronic miscarriage problems also works to sustain pregnancy for women who have taken the first dose of the abortion pill RU-486. And it has been found effective at least 75% of the time with no significant risks to either the mother or the child! This life-saving progesterone therapy ideally must be started within 72 hours after she has taken the first abortion pill.

 

If CompassCare can get the message to a woman having second thoughts about her abortion decision then there is a very good chance of helping her reverse the effects of the drug. And it only costs $680 to cancel out the effects of a $600 abortion!

 

CompassCare celebrates the opportunity to provide another layer of choice to women faced with difficult pregnancy decisions by offering this cutting edge abortion pill reversal service to women. And it works!

 

We have already witnessed first-hand the effectiveness of this life-saving therapy. This is the only option available to the women in Rochester and the surrounding regions that change their mind after taking the abortion pill.

 

Please consider helping CompassCare promote and provide this essential life-saving abortion pill reversal service with a financial commitment.

Real Results: Lasting Impact

ROI. Return on Investment is the rally cry of all financial planners. And apparently it was important to Jesus too, in light of the severe denouncement of the ‘wicked’ servant who simply buried his master’s talent instead of putting it in the bank (Parable of the Talents, Matthew 25: 14-29). What kind of ROI is the Master looking for in a ministry to which you give? What makes you so excited about CompassCare’s mission that you feel comfortable investing your talents here?ROI

 

Is it that CompassCare insulates women facing unplanned pregnancy from the overwhelming pressures that drive her to get an abortion? Is it that we believe women deserve to be fully informed in a stress-free environment before they determine the outcome of their pregnancy? Would those be what it takes to receive the Master’s hearty ‘well done’?

 

Or is it that the future reproductive health of every woman is being protected by CompassCare with services like STD testing and treatment, offered to her at no cost? Perhaps it’s that women feel empowered by the nurses, who give her insight into her pregnancy with an ultrasound scan? Would those be enough for the Master to entrust the organization with more talents?

 

Well doneMaybe it is that the Master approves of the fact that most women, after being cared for by kind and compassionate nurses, feel safe and secure enough to have their babies, receiving a vision of their future after having their baby boy or girl? The fact that women can come to the emotional oasis that is CompassCare to take a deep draught in the waters of life before diving headlong back into the lonely heat of her desert world might also be just enough for the Master to say, ‘Enter into the joy of your Master.’

The answer is, YES. And yet there is more. The other day, a man and his wife attended a CompassCare Vision Tour. When the tour presentation was over and people were shuffling Proud Papaout, he took me aside, and with tears in his eyes, told me the beautiful story of a woman who courageously refused to have an abortion. Despite the threats of her husband, the baby’s father, she had a son. This son grew up, got married, had seven wonderful children and now enjoys 29 grandchildren. You’ve probably guessed that the grandfather was describing the circumstances surrounding his very own birth. You see, it was not just the life of the little boy at stake but generations of little boys and girls. His mother did not simply say, ‘Yes’ to her son, but to all the future generations as well. She said, ‘No!’ to the stifling air of the worries and cares of this world. She said, ‘No!’ to the iron-fisted oppression of a short-sighted culture and husband.

 

This woman’s son reminded me that CompassCare is not just sparing women from the pain of abortion, not just saving the lives of babies in the here and now, which alone would be enough to justify the investment. CompassCare is also encouraging women to pronounce a resounding ‘Yes!’ over all future generations of the crown of God’s creation.

 

What kind of ROI is it that can spare scores of lives just by reaching one? It costs $350 to serve one woman. For $350 you can ensure that the destiny of hundreds, thousands, even tens of thousands can be spared. Now that’s a return on an investment!

“Whoever Saves One Life Saves the World Entire”

America’s abortion laws are some of the most inhumane on Earth. European, South American and African countries all have stronger laws protecting pre-born children and their mothers. Knowing that America has altogether dehumanized the pre-born boy and girl encouraging an ‘anything goes’ mentality, the great challenge of our day may prove to be the greatest challenge of all time. We must accept this destiny as from the sovereign hand of God as we rise to meet this challenge with wisdom and courage. The cause of protecting the child and insulating the mother from coercive pressure falls to you and me. If there were ever a mission worth continuously improving, it is the mission of helping women at risk for abortion to have their babies.

to-the-dump-1-1005156-sWomen living in a throw-away culture like America’s are often defenseless against the pressure to abort an unplanned pregnancy. They are coerced with false time pressure, no information, misinformation, anti-family careerism, and posh standard-of-living expectations. Politics, education, medicine, media, and even sometimes and sadly the church conspire to justify this violent mutilation done upon her and her child. To dehumanize, like the Supreme Court did to babies in the Roe vs. Wade decision, in order to justify the destruction of that class of persons, degrades not just the babies and the mothers, but all of us. If we as humans do not place definitive value on each other as created just a little under God, then there is no end to the violence we will justify, legalize, and perpetrate to accomplish our selfish goals.

CompassCare empowers a woman with a vision of her future after having a child, standing not just for women and children but for all humanity. An ancient Hebrew teaching states that,success “Whoever saves one life save the world entire.” Unlike abortionists, CompassCare is marching to the beat of a different cultural drum having to fight to reach and effectively serve every single patient, each of whom is desperate for ethical medical care. Therefore, CompassCare must be brutally honest when assessing how its current services are reaching and serving women. After that the team develops a plan to modify existing services or add new ones to get even better at reaching and serving women at risk for abortion. That plan is then implemented. After that the team reassesses. This is CompassCare’s dedication. Because human life is worth every great thought and every small thought dedicated to protecting it. Protecting human life is worth the hard work and resources needed to improve existing services and it is worth taking the risk on a new plan that has never before been tried. So we constantly scan the horizon for opportunities; assess, develop, implement, reassess, and do it all over again to save just one more life. To say to the world, “This one life stands for us all under God and made in His image!”

Women don’t have abortions because the societies in which they live respect their rights or choice. Women have abortions because they are told in a thousand different ways that they are on their own. Women feel as though unplanned pregnancy is a life or death situation. She says to herself, “It is either my life or the baby’s life.” She feels that her life as she knows it will be over if she allows the pregnancy to continue. After all, abortion is not about choice but fear, not about freedom but society’s choice not to support women who find themselves pregnant.

So CompassCare seeks to erase a woman’s perceived need for abortion by transforming her fear into confidence with services and support that are relevant to her, now. And in a changing culture the definition of what is relevant changes and so must we. There is no improvement too small that CompassCare will not implement, like testing another online marketing track to reach a few more women. There is no innovation too big that CompassCare will not try, like adding a mobile medical unit to serve even more women. Every woman insulated and every life protected shouts the message that all human life is valuable and must be dignified with protection.

By God’s grace the abortion rate is coming down dramatically in Rochester. This is because of God’s grace in people like you, working sacrificially for the future of the human race. Changing a culture is always messy, unpopular, and uncomfortable work. But it is always worth it. Thank you for all you do to erase the need for abortion.

Thank God our time is now when wrong

Comes up to face us everywhere,

Never to leave us till we take

The longest stride of soul men every took.

Whoever Wishes to Save His Life Must Lose It

In 2012 CompassCare helped 50% more women seriously considering abortion have their babies than ever before! In 2013 CompassCare is working, praying and strategizing on increasing the patient load by another 100%!

Many women when faced with an unplanned pregnancy are confronted with what they perceive to be a terrible decision: Either my life or the baby’s life. Her circumstances are conspiring against her. The culture tells her that her priorities should be school, a career, money, and independence. Her conscience tells her that ending the life of the baby should not be a decision she should ever have to make.

While we know that having the baby does not necessarily spell doom on the life plans of a woman facing unplanned pregnancy, she still feels pulled in that direction. Her friends, the media, the government, maybe even her parents tell her that her life as she knows it or planned it will end tragically by allowing the baby to live. But something deep in the soul of every woman intuits a different reality.

CompassCare’s job is to give a woman a vision of her future after having a child. CompassCare’s job is to appeal to the noble side of her, beckoning her to a higher calling. We are asking her to exchange her bodily image for a baby, restful evenings for sleepless nights, her reputation for dirty diapers, and a new car for a car seat, a diploma for crayons and a coloring book. We are asking her to sacrifice who she is, so that another might live.


How could we do any less? There is nothing more meaningful, nothing more demanding, nothing more fulfilling, and nothing more exhausting than laying our lives down in sum total for our neighbor, whether that neighbor is a baby or the broken family across the street. This is how the Church changes the world. Sacrificing one for another is how the Kingdom of God comes to earth, to our nation, to our town, to our family. It was after all Jesus Who taught us to pray, “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).

Jesus made a way for our salvation and it requires our death, giving up our right to ourselves. This kind of life is characterized by uncalculated devotion to God, without thought of our own personal suffering. This kind of freedom from the bonds of materialistic self-love cost Christ everything. We ask women to give everything in exchange for the life of her baby. God also asks us to give everything for others. There will come a time in our nation when sacrificing for our faith will become normal -normal and necessary. And that time may be closer than we realize. Sacrifice with CompassCare this year. Join us as we encourage more women than ever to sacrifice themselves for the lives of their children.

Pregnancy Centers Serving More Abortion-minded Women–Executives Say, ‘Optimization Tool Works!’

CompassCare spent the last eight years developing and perfecting a system of marketing, care, and follow-up specifically designed to reach and serve abortion-minded women more effectively. After slow and methodical training and implementation in select medical Pregnancy Resource Centers (PRC) from California to New York one thing is clear: The Optimization Tool (OT) works!

And now it is time to shout it from the roof tops. Jesus says in John 9:4, “We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work.”

The OT has a proven track record (read case histories here) if implemented comprehensively to increase:

-Call volumes

-Schedule rates

-Show rates

-Percentage of abortion-minded patients

-Gospel presentation and conversion rates

-Number of women having their babies

Now the brave Pregnancy Resource Center executives who pioneered the Linear Service Model have made themselves available to you. Executives running organizations just like you are committed to coaching you through the Optimization process. Read executive coach profiles here.

With all that is happening at the State and Federal levels to take over health care as well as NARAL and Planned Parenthood’s effort to hinder the good work of PRCs the OT is more important than ever. The OT provides an objective system where women are served the same way each time in a manner consistent with traditional medical ethics (something abortionists cannot do). The OT provides a way to delivers services to more abortion-minded women, more effectively. The OT gives executives and boards a platform which serves not only to insulate your PRC from external threats but also gives you the sound foundation to be a public voice speaking out against the abortion industry’s egregious medical ethics violations. NARAL and Planned Parenthood will fear to confront you with bogus investigations because in so doing they will only uncover their own manipulative service strategy.

The One Thing a U.S. President Can’t Do

During a routine physical exam a man walks into his doctor’s office and says, “I am 50 years old and I’m getting eight hours of rest every night. My blood pressure is 120/80. I am trim

How does a healthy society look?

and energetic and I have a generally good outlook on life.” Horrified the doctor responds, “Start burning the candle at both ends, increase your sodium intake, decrease your level of exercise, and start watching the daily news.” “What?! But that kind of lifestyle does not sound like it will keep me healthy,” responds the perplexed patient. “Healthy? Who are you to define what health is?” demands the physician.

Ridiculous scenario, right? But this is exactly the kind of insanity that has been playing out in American society over the last several decades and now coming to a head with the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) as well as the recent presidential election cycle.

Happily all doctors and patients can agree what physical health looks like and what sickness means for an individual. But we are divided on how a healthy society behaves and cannot agree about how a sick society looks. Interestingly the debates around repealing the PPACA are all nibbling at the edges of this important question of where the good of society meets the good of the individual.

As you know the U.S. Federal government has usurped control of the medical sector through the PPACA, swamping society with thousands of pages of legislation filled with vagary most legislators never bothered to read. Fear not, we will all continue to hear many more words about the PPACA as this election cycle winds up. But will they be the ‘right words,’ born from the right ideas? The passage of the PPACA occurred because legislators thought something was terribly wrong with, at least, the medical portion of society.  In passing the law they mistakenly presumed that everyone understood and agreed on a common view of how a good society should look, without ever clarifying their vision.

There was a time when most Americans had the same idea of how a good society should look and what a good man was within that society. And politics was simple, a matter of serving the shared sense of the greater good. Now to serve the greater good means appeasing the richest, most powerful constituency able to get you reelected. If that means redefining marriage to include homosexuals, so be it. If it means ignoring the infanticide that is abortion, then that’s just fine. What’s worse about this state of affairs is that, for example, the debate about abortion can never be resolved because the reasons people have for being either pro-life or pro-abortion are usually based on emotional choices without a clear and compelling rationale, drawn from a shared conception of the purpose of a human and the common good of society. All we have are appeals to emotion like, “It’s a woman’s body,” or “Thank God your mother was pro-life,” ad nauseam. So we have unresolvable concerns expressed only in protest and counter-protest constantly trying to reveal the obvious evil ploys of the opponent. We have conventions complete with the unceasing emotional banter cloaked in logical terms spoken by the elitist ruling bureaucrats in suits with the compulsory, yet somehow patriotic, red or blue tie. And the bemused and bewitched watch from their recliners as the flickering box sparkles in their wide eyes and exclaim, “Oh, how exciting! We’ve had enough! Yes, we can!” Yet for many, a harvest moon is beginning to dawn revealing the haunting reality that government does not have the power to restore society to health.

America, like government and now medicine, is close to losing her soul. We must return and remember what a good society is. We must resurrect a common understanding that the ultimate purpose of a human is to glorify God by living a life consistent with His character. Society must be reborn into an ancient way of thinking, finding meaning in the context of belief through the authority of the Judeo-Christian God.

CompassCare resists the advancement of this modern pluralistic insanity by holding to the truth that women and their pre-born children have a purpose in the Divine Will. Our place is to facilitate the vision of that purpose. Together we renew hope and desire for men and women to learn and embrace healthy ways of viewing children and parenthood amidst the materialistic fog and social darkness that isolates the individual, knowing that good community is only born out of the common everyday lives of godly people.

Looming HHS Mandates Force You and Me to Pay For Abortion while CompassCare Has Best Year Ever

Scheduled patient appointments are up 73% year to date over last year! The number of women who arrive for their appointments is up 59%. The number of positive pregnancy tests is up 63%. The number of abortion-minded women served is up 84%! Help CompassCare continue to multiply its success!

Because of the generosity and prayers of donors and volunteers just like you CompassCare is erasing the need for abortion. Women, one at a time, are receiving the information and support they need to feel secure enough to have their babies. Now, after emerging from CompassCare’s annual strategic planning week, we are poised to take the next steps at reaching and serving even more women at risk for abortion this year.

During one of the team planning sessions last week we were celebrating with the team leaders CompassCare’s 50% increase in the number of women served who were at risk for abortion and went on to have their babies. We discussed why we were able to see such significant increases in order that we might repeat it in the coming year. The following is a list of what we concluded were important elements to CompassCare’s gains last year and will be crucial to our gains in the future: a commitment to prayer, dedication to continuous improvement, a desire to be the ‘first best source’ for women, a realistic optimism, the ability to delegate tasks and roles in a responsible way, and increased inter-team communication.

Helping More Women Have Their Babies Than Ever!

We then set for the coming year a target goal together of increasing the number of at risk women having their babies by 100% over last year. We noted that if we all hit or exceeded our target goals per team that we would easily accomplish the 100% patient increase goal on our way toward 20% of the entire market thereby putting significant financial strain on the abortion industry in Rochester.

2012 and 2013 are in many ways transition years and as such are characterized best by uncertainty. No one knows what will happen with the global economy, the U.S. economy, the Presidential election, the healthcare system, etc. But what we do know is that God does not want us to be fearful men but rather faithful disciples (Matthew 10 24-39). We must keep doing the right things, in the right way, at the right time come what may.

CompassCare’s Rochester operation over the last four years has helped to save an average of 7 babies per month. And five of CompassCare’s top ten months occurred this year (and the year is not even over yet) with June and July seeing 14 and 15 lives saved respectively! 

As you know CompassCare is always looking for ways to multiply our ability to erase the need for abortion. A few of the projects to which CompassCare will be devoted this year are:

1)      Open-sourcing our proven and highly effective service strategy to all pregnancy centers. Now that we are certain the system can reach and serve more abortion-minded women anywhere it is implemented we are going to give it to any center willing to use it. This is the pregnancy resource center equivalent to McDonald’s giving all hamburger joints their complete marketing and management model. Why? To reverse the national abortion trend that much faster.

God, Grant Us Wisdom and Courage

2)      Implementing the next phase of CompassCare’s marketing initiative by testing new, more aggressive messaging based on the three tensions women typically feel that drive them to get abortions: guilt over ending the baby’s life versus facing the shame of an unplanned pregnancy, my life as I know it versus the baby’s life, no life for the baby versus poor quality of life for the baby.

3)      Developing a community education program regarding what it will mean to be pro-life after the implementation of the Affordable Care Act Health and Human Services (HHS) mandates. The HHS mandates force all individuals to purchase health care covering abortion and abortion causing birth control (for all plans renewing after 8/1/12) in addition to forcing most Americans to directly pay into an abortion fund (starting 1/1/14) or suffer severe financial consequences. The HHS mandates if left unchanged means that we can no longer believe abortion is wrong and worse still it will be illegal for us NOT to support it.
