What’s Happening

 

MOVING FORWARD

The first half of 2019 seems almost a blur as the flurry of activity has certainly increased at Involved for Life! As we’re working through the labor pains of birthing a comprehensive women’s healthcare center, the Lord has stretched us mentally, physically and spiritually to grow into this greater level of service and influence in North Texas.

While we’re still searching for a new building to locate our expanded women’s center, we are MOVING FORWARD to begin offering expanded services immediately at our Downtown Pregnancy Center. With that expansion came the movement to an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) keeping system, which we began in July 2019. We are also now an approved Medicaid provider and also a provider within the Healthy Texas Woman program, allowing us to receive reimbursement for medical services. God is so good!

One exciting addition to our medical services is Abortion Pill Reversal (APR). It is estimated that approximately 40% of all abortions now performed are via medical (AKA chemical) abortions: a two-step process that involves taking one medication on Day One at the abortion facility, followed by a second medication that causes a woman to go into premature labor on Day Two in the privacy of her own home and without direct medical supervision. The majority of abortionists are moving towards an increase in providing abortion pills over surgery, allowing a more far-reaching, less expensive mode of operation.

An interesting phenomenon has occurred. Women who take the first dosage of abortion-causing drugs have experienced immediate regret and begin searching for information on how to reverse the process. Involved for Life is part of a national network which refers women seeking reversal of this abortion process to us for immediate help. When we’re able to see women before they take the second dosage, we can begin the abortion pill reversal protocol with an excellent success rate of saving the life of the baby in her womb!

Our Calling:  “Plant the good seeds of righteousness, reap the fruit of unfailing love, and break up your unplowed ground; for now is the time to seek the LORD, that He may come and shower His righteousness upon you.”  Hosea 10:12

Our Goal: To serve the North Texas community through a first-rate, fully-comprehensive women’s whole health clinic as a truly incomparable alternative to any other provider of women’s health services, addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of women through our Lifestyle Medical Model.
