Pregnancy Decisions – What Are My Options?


Facing a pregnancy decision?

Welcome to the “sparkling new” blog site of ABC Life Choices in San Clemente. We are so glad you found us.

WHO WE ARE: We seek to serve and educate the women in our community by providing hope to
 women facing pregnancy decisions and to help heal those who have experienced abortion. We’re a non-profit on a mission to bring practical help and solutions. Our national affiliation promotes accountability with a high standard of care for our clients. We provide a confidential place to work out client emotions and the complexities that surround pregnancy.

We are not suits. We are women (and a few men for our male clients) who have a connection to serving this organization. Some of us were teen mothers, some of us have had abortions, some of us have adopted children or placed for adoption, experienced miscarriages, and some of us have never been pregnant. We are a mixed bag. The one thing we all have in common, and it is mandatory to serve in the center – is that we all must love and care for you, the client. We see you, we know you, we are you. No judgment, no shame.

WHO YOU MAY BE: Facing an unexpected pregnancy? Wondering about your pregnancy options – abortion, parenting, adoption? Are you confused or concerned about sexually transmitted diseases and infections? Dealing with a past abortion?

WHAT AN APPONTMENT LOOKS LIKE: You can call or text us, 949-334-7722, and we will make an appointment for you to come into our Center. All of our services are confidential and at no cost to you. The Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC) is located in San Clemente, easily accessible off the 5 freeway at the Ave Palizada exit. Our address is 416 Avenida de la Estrella….look for our cute and funky exterior with it’s bright orange trim and happy glow of potted succulents!

When you arrive, a friendly receptionist greets you and you’ll be given you a simple “Request for Services” to complete. You will then meet a caring client advocate, who will spend time getting to know you, and will listen to your needs and concerns. If you need a pregnancy test, one will be given to you.

If your test is positive, you may qualify for a limited ultrasound to date your pregnancy and determine viability. It’s documented that 20% of all pregnancies naturally end in miscarriage. If your test is negative we can give you information on STDs/STIs and how to protect your sexual health.
