Save Women and Babies from Abortion
The reversal of Roe did not end abortion. In fact, abortion numbers may increase as the abortion empire pivots to a new hub-and-spoke business model, putting women and their babies at greater risk. CompassCare saw the likely overturn of Roe in 2018 and began developing and implementing a plan to save more women and babies from abortion in a post-Roe America.
1. Increase and protect pro-life services
Increase infrastructure for in-person, pro-life medical care in abortion-hub states like NY, serving more women who believe abortion is their only choice, while protecting pro-life pregnancy centers from violence and censorship.
2. Equip pro-life pregnancy centers
Equipping pro-life medical pregnancy centers nationwide with twenty-first-century telehealth tools (TeleCare), reducing the time it takes to serve a woman considering abortion with a pro-life nurse from 24 hours to 24 seconds.

|1980: Organization Launched|
||CompassCare, first named ‘Citizens for Public Morality,’ was founded in 1980 out of the hearts of several people in a Bible Study. The first office was opened by volunteers in Rochester’s 19th ward. The organization decided to focus on abortion as the most pressing injustice facing society, the name was changed to "Crisis Pregnancy Services."|
