During these unprecedented times, Birthright of Pittsburgh remains committed to serving our clients and fulfilling our mission. We continue to support pregnant women by offering alternatives to abortion with compassion and practical assistance. Our confidential services include practical resources, guidance, free pregnancy tests, referrals to community agencies, and client follow-up throughout pregnancy.
Our top priority is the wellbeing of our clients. Accordingly, to reduce the risks associated with COVID-19, Birthright is complying with all guidance issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and by the Pennsylvania Department of Health. This includes social distancing and frequent hand-washing.
As a social assistance organization, Birthright is exempt from the Governor’s closure order for non-life-sustaining businesses. Our office remains open on an as-needed basis. However, to help reduce the risk of transmission, we are serving clients remotely whenever possible. We will continue to make our services available to pregnant women throughout the duration of this crisis.
