Mission Statement

BIRTHRIGHT HELPS
...any girl or woman regardless of age, race, creed, marital or economic status, who feels distressed by an unplanned pregnancy.

BIRTHRIGHT IS THERE
...for every woman who calls for help. Whether that call is for nothing more than an anonymous pregnancy test or for friendship and support lasting through the delivery and beyond, Birthright is there. Every woman is special and deserves to be treated as an individual.

BIRTHRIGHT CARES
...for every woman and does not pass judgment on the "quality" of life or circumstances of a pregnancy. It does not dwell on the past. Birthright instead asks, "How can we help?" No matter how difficult a situation may seem, Birthright helps each woman plan constructively for her future.

BIRTHRIGHT ALLOWS
...each woman to ask questions and to explore her options without pressure and without passing judgment.

BIRTHRIGHT DOES NOT
...use "scare tactics" or pressure.
...show abortion slides or pictures.
...picket or harass abortion clinics.
...evangelize.
...lobby for legislative changes or engage in the public debate on abortion.

BIRTHRIGHT MAINTAINS
...a 24-hour free hotline: 1-800-550-4900.
...hundreds of local crisis telephone and drop-in chapters.

BIRTHRIGHT EDUCATES
...through one-on-one contact with the woman in need and those around her. Birthright provides personal attention.

BIRTHRIGHT GIVES
...its services free of charge. A tax-exempt, charitable organization, Birthright exists because of the financial and moral support of its donors and volunteers. It is independent, interdenominational, and not affiliated with any religious or political group or public agency.

BIRTHRIGHT WAITS
At Birthright, a friend is waiting, for as long as you need one.
