Tennessee Resolution Recognizing CareNet Pregnancy Medical Center’s 25th Anniversary (HJR 601)
This law was last updated on May 23, 2019
HJR 601 is a joint resolution honoring and commending CareNet Pregnancy Medical Center on its 25th anniversary.
The resolution states:
CareNet has grown significantly over the years and currently serves Dickson, Hickman, Humphries, Houston, and Perry counties, providing free services and education, including pregnancy tests, abortion education and alternatives, adoption/abstinence education and support, prepared childbirth classes, labor and delivery support, peer counseling, and support and material assistance.
WHEREAS, in an effort to better serve those in need, CareNet completed construction of a 3,700-square-foot addition to its current location in 2008, enabling the organization to offer complimentary ultrasounds to qualifying patients; the organization also diagnoses pregnancy, determines the gestational age of the baby, and determines whether the pregnancy is a viable intrauterine pregnancy.
CPCs have come under increased scrutiny over the last several years, as investigations have revealed that centers across the country have provided inaccurate information and neglected to follow proper medical protocols. (Source.)
