Since 1983 Birthright of Jackson has been providing caring, nonjudgmental support to girls and women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. Often these girls and women seek out Birthright of Jackson to get a free pregnancy test and we discuss the results of that test with only them. We treat each client as an individual who deserves kindness, respect and personal attention to her unique situation and needs. We ask "How can we help you?" We encourage each woman to ask questions to explore her options without pressure or judgment.
We are a crisis pregnancy counseling center. We do not protest, advocate or engage in politicial activities.
Birthright volunteers follow-up with our clients to check on their situation throughout their pregnancy. We lose touch with some of them. Others tell us that because of our concern and counseling they decided to keep their babies. Once their babies are born, we offer our clients diapers and infant clothing.
We also provide our clients with information and referrals to help them meet their legal, medical, financial and housing needs. All Birthright services are free, absolutely confidential, and available to any woman regardless of age, race, creed, religion, economic or marital status.
Our sole focus is on trying to meet the needs of the women that come to us. No matter how difficult these situations seem, Birthright helps each woman plan constructively for her future.
