Pregnancy Resources

An unexpected pregnancy can bring a storm of emotions. You may experience anxiety, excitement, fear, confusion, hope, desperation, or all of the above!  No woman should have to sort through all of this by herself. Whatever you choose will be permanent and have a significant impact on your life. We encourage you to take full advantage of the resources available to you before you make a final decision.

 

To help you in your journey, Secular Pro-Life has compiled a list of not-for-profit groups that offer a wide range of services to pregnanct women. All of the resources below are completely free. The websites linked to do not contain any graphic photos of abortions. 

 

These resources are not operated by Secular Pro-Life, but we offer these referrals as a starting point for you. If you wish to speak directly to a Secular Pro-Life volunteer, please contact us. We will be happy to listen and to offer support that is specific to your situation.

A Note About Federally Qualified

Health Centers (FQHCs)

Unlike the other resources on this page, FQHCs aren't always free; instead, they charge based on your ability to pay. That said, they can be a good option, especially if you ​are in need of medical services beyond just pregnancy care. They're also the most convenient option for many women, since there are over 8,000 locations.  Click here to find an FQHC near you
