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 anything 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 CompassCare 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.
The 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.
