Birthright of Ottawa is a chapter of Birthright International. Birthright is an organization born of the need to help women-married or single-that are distressed by an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy. Each woman seeking help receives the warmth of another person's friendship and practical assistance.
We are organized on a volunteer, non-sectarian basis and are free of charge. We operate a twenty-four hour crisis centre and have been serving the Ottawa community since July, 1973.
The first stage in helping a woman, who is distressed, is to determine if she is really pregnant. A free pregnancy test is done, and if the pregnancy is confirmed, the next stage is to discuss her problems and needs. She will then decide for herself what she is going to do.
Birthright will help find financial and medical assistance for those who need it. We also offer assistance in obtaining, directly or through other social or community agencies, help, according to the individual needs of the pregnant woman.
