Birthchoice is NOT about choice. They have no medical personnel on staff. They fasley protray themselves as clinic that gives the client the choice. How this happens, a person calls for an appointment for an abortion. They come in, thinking they are getting an abortion. The clinic staff dresses in scrubs, so the "patient" thinks they are medically trained. They are not, they have an ultra sound machine, which they use to give the client false information, that the patient is farther along then they originally think they are, so they don't want to get an abortion. Because, unlike the crazy right wing anti-choice would have you believe, the majority of proceedures are performed in the first tri-mester. Being told this information, usually will change the mind of the patient, not to abort because she feels she is too far along. Now we have another unwanted child in the world. But wait for it, the Catholics will help adopt your baby out and make a ton of money in the process. If you don't want to have an abortion, dont have one. That is what is great about choice.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not allow them to advertise under abortion provider headings.

My friend back in high school went to Birthchoice when she thought she was pregnant. The volunteers listened to her and helped her learn about all her options. I would reccomend this organization to any young woman I know.

There is never a time when I visit the office that I do not feel genuine concern, care and love. The staff and volunteers that serve women and men in crisis pregnancies have a special way to reach out and touch these people in their strained and confusing situations. They are committed to educating them about what is happening, always without pressure but always with genuine concern. Birthchoice is the epitome of sanctifying the precious nature of life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the stories I've heard and witnessed of those young women that came to Birthchoice, had an ultrasound, saw their babies in utero and made a truly informed choice to carry their babies to term.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the genuine love and concern that everyone shows for the clients

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, helpful, caring

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

money cannot replicate the caliber of the people that work there. It could expand but should only do so after "cloning" the characters of the current staff and volunteers.

This organization is wonderful and treats each person whether a client or volunteer with total respect and love. Birthchoice allows a woman to make an educated decision and lets her know that someone cares and will be there no matter what they decide. There is nothing better than seeing a young woman or couple get information and choose life. Lives are changed and saved at Birthchoice.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Follow up call: young couple that had seriously considered abortion a few months back decided to keep the child. They are now married with a delivery date late June. The woman had and very difficult background and her life has turned completely around.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The professionalism of the staff and counseling of the women.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The entire staff is well trained and focused on the mission.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Get a more visible location, or maybe several locations, add some paid staff so open hours would stay consistent. Advertize and offer regular classes on NFP and other women and family issues.

BirthChoice is such a welcoming place for women who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. All of the staff and volunteers genuinely want to help women. Not only do they strive to offer a listening ear, fact-based information, and resource referrals, but they truly offer unconditional respect and acceptance to each person. This agency is a gift in service to so many people.

I love the example that the volunteers have provided for my children.They have babysat at the facility from time to time and volunteer when they can. My children and I have prayed in front of the abortion clinic. The volunteers at Birthchoice are wonderful witnesses who value the lives of both the mothers and their babies. Each life that is saved is celebrated.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the success stories of women who decide to keep their babies after being served at Birthchoice.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

put a Birthchoice facilcty just like this one in every city of every state in this country and then the world!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the fact that Birthchoice instills the values that I ,as a Catholic mother, am living.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

people I respect and love. They are heroes in my family.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

open more facilities with wonderfully trained volunteers

Ways to make it better...

we had more nonprofits like this.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

helping people understand the value of life from conception.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Birthchoice is the best place to get great information and witness God's will in action.
