U.S. data documented a 26% increase in the maternal mortality rate from 2000-2014. Some suggest the increase is partly due to limiting women’s access to legal abortion. The truth is that assertion is based on incomplete data and untrustworthy studies. Dissect the data, discuss techniques and complications, and even racial disparity in this webinar so you can serve abortion-minded women in the grip of fear due to this kind of misinformation. This training offers 1.0 contact hours of credit for nurses who meet all requirements. Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 16061 for 1.0 contact hours.
Presented by Beth Diemert, Anne Camille Talley, Patrick Marmion MD, and Ingrid Skop MD

Have you ever been asked the question "What does it really mean to be pro-life?" How did you respond?
Join Sarah Bowen, author of Courageously Pro-Life and Director of Alpha Omega center for a 12-week course, starting September 28, that will walk staff and volunteers through what it means to be pro-life. This training will not only cover the sanctity of human life from multiple perspectives using history and scripture, but will equip staff and volunteers with a practical knowledge of how this information applies to their work in a pregnancy help organization. You may learn things about the history of euthanasia, eugenics, and abortion that you never knew before.
Participants of the course will be asked to complete a weekly reading assignment from Courageously Pro-Life, complete an online activity, and tune in for a weekly call with Sarah to discuss the material (live participation optional).
