Choose Life

We believe that every life is sacred and that no life—born or unborn—is disposable. All of the principles of Catholic social teaching flow from the core belief that every person has inherent dignity that must be respected.

Bishop's Message

We Were Born Ready

Facing Unplanned Pregnancy

“You are not alone.”

That’s the message from the staff of the pregnancy resource centers and clinics across San Diego and Imperial Counties that is ready to help any woman facing an unplanned pregnancy — with no judgment.

In addition, there is a hotline available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in English and in Spanish to help women facing a crisis pregnancy: (877) 398-7734

The organization Options for Pregnancy lists resource centers and clinics across the U.S., plus resources:

Post-Abortion Resources

It’s normal to grieve a pregnancy loss, including the loss of a child by abortion. It can form a hole in one’s heart, a hole so deep that sometimes it seems nothing can fill the emptiness, according to Project Rachel. These organizations are ready to help those individuals in need of healing.
