“I liked being able to talk with someone who knows what is going on.”

The Guttmacher Institute is a leading researcher in the support of legal abortion.
- According to the Institute 1 out of every 3 women will have an abortion by the age of 45
- 58 percent of women who have an abortion are in there 20’s
- 50 percent of women who have had an abortion will have a second
Since 1971 Birthchoice has been seeing these women – those who are most vulnerable and at risk for abortion. Birthchoice cares for and accepts women where they are at. Our client advocates meet with the women who come to us in a quiet, loving, respectful environment.
As research began to show that somewhere between 70 to 80 percent of women who are most at risk of having an abortion, after viewing an ultrasound of their child, choose to have their babies, it became important for us to make a change.
To become more effective in caring for women and their unborn children Birthchoice became a Pregnancy Medical Center in 2006 offering limited ultrasounds under the direction and supervision of a medical director.
Last year alone we had over 1100 client visits, 874 ultrasounds performed and 78 percent of our most vulnerable women chose life!
“It’s amazing every time I get to see the life of an unborn child on the ultrasound screen and the look of wonder in the mother as she realizes that her child is alive, heart beating, moving, a complete individual.”
