Pregnant???

Your Rights

pregnant-377451_1920.jpgThe mission of Life Legal is to protect vulnerable life, including life in the womb. We occasionally receive calls from young women who want help in choosing life for their babies. Sometimes they need basic resources, like medical care or housing. Sometimes they want to know about adoption. And sometimes they are being forced by someone close to them to have an abortion.

You have a legal right to make decisions about your pregnancy that are right for you.

If you are feeling pressured to abort your baby, call us at 707.224.6675.

byd-lookupIf you are pregnant and unsure about what to do, take some time to research all of your options. At the moment, abortion may seem like the quickest and easiest way to move on with your life. But abortion is a decision that can never be undone. Terminating your pregnancy–and with it the life of an unborn child–carries long term physical, emotional, and spiritual effects.
