A Woman's Choice
A Woman's Choice has been counseling pregnant women in Northern Virginia and metropolitan Washington DC area since 1985. Our mission is to love and support pregnant women so much that abortion becomes an unthinkable option. Our goal is to save the lives of unborn babies primarily through medical support and assisting women in coming up with a workable parenting plan. We tell them of the physical, emotional and spiritual side-effects of abortion and refer them to a pro-life medical center for a sonogram and first pre-natal visit. Last year we spent over $24,000 on private prenatal care. We answered 2,230 requests for material assistance and gave away 216 brand new cribs. We also support women in the community who have already made pro-life decisions. As part of our educational mission, we do require that people coming in for the first visit stay and watch a video called, ?Sex Has A Price Tag.? This focuses on chastity before marriage and the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases. Clients can come in once every 3 months for diapers, clothes and whatever else they may need. We occasionally give emergency assistance to families paying for rent, utilities, day care etc.
