Life Choices has been called to be a culture-changer for our community; and since 1984, we’ve been dedicated to meeting the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of young men, women and families facing unplanned pregnancies by offering life-affirming options to those in this difficult situation. Through our free My Choice Medical Clinics in Kittanning, Butler and Indiana, we offer pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and options counseling to women considering abortion. We also offer prenatal and parenting education, post abortion support, STD/STI testing and treatment, and sexual health and relationship education. Within the schools and youth groups, My Choice Education educates the youth on how to have healthy relationships, the consequences of risky behavior, and how to make good choices. “No safe place to live” is one of the number one reasons women give for choosing abortion. Life Choices is in the process of opening a maternity home in Butler County to help eliminate that reason in this area. All of our services are FREE. We accept no medical insurance and receive absolutely NO government funding. Our doors are open because of the generosity of the communities we serve. Most importantly, since opening our first medical clinic in 2011, we have seen at least 183 babies SAVED from abortion!

Health and well-being are all about balance. That’s why we help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all backgrounds improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.
