A Miracle in the Making

A miracle happened in Rochester and it is happening again in Buffalo. The scope of CompassCare’s services include not only reaching and serving women seriously considering abortion in Rochester, but also two other major ministry elements: 1) helping Pregnancy Decision Centers get better at reaching and serving women and 2) educating the community about the inestimable worth of each human life. Over the course of the last year another field of missional harvest was added to CompassCare’s approach – Buffalo. So, what is the miracle?

“Thank you for everything you’ve done for me!”

Trisha is a recent college graduate, just starting her professional career in the Buffalo area. She and her boyfriend were excited about their future plans together. Then Trisha found out she is pregnant. Unsure of what to do, she told her boyfriend who strongly encouraged her to abort. Trisha, feeling like she would lose him if she didn’t follow his urgings, searched online for a place to learn more about abortion. She called CompassCare and got an appointment for the next day.

Is the Church Ready for Abortion Tourism?

New York (NY) State has more abortions per capita than any other state in the union. At the same time, pro-life pregnancy centers in NY have the capacity to serve only a minuscule percentage of women considering abortion…except in Rochester, home of CompassCare. The pro-life infrastructure in NY is so small it is like trying to douse a house engulfed in flames with the bucket of suds left over from washing the car in the driveway.
