In 1986, Life Choices began its ministry to women facing the prospect of an unplanned pregnancy. Our first call was from a young woman who wasn't even sure how she found the number. She simply said, "I think I'm pregnant. Can you help me?"
That first phone call ignited our passion at Life Choices. We exist to help those women who are asking the same question our first client asked so long ago. "Can you help me?" Our priority at Life Choices is to truthfully answer women's questions with the respect and dignity we feel all women deserve-- regardless of their ultimate decision.
In 1987, Life Choices became a state-licensed child-placing agency and has seen more than 225 women complete adoption plans for their infants. We hold positions of leadership in the West Tennessee Council of Adoption Agencies and the Adoption Center of the Mid-South. One of our adoption clients recently wrote, "Yes, sometimes when I think about my daughter, I'm sad. But then I think of how happy she is and how faithful the family is in sending pictures and letters, and I know I made the right decision for both of us."
In 2007, Life Choices converted into a medical clinic, including diagnostic pregnancy testing and limited obstetrical ultrasound under the supervision of a licensed medical doctor and on-site registered nursing staff.For women who choose to make a life-affirming decision in their pregnancy, we offer counseling to help her make a positive plan for both she and her baby. If she chooses to end the pregnancy and they experience issues that they feel are related to that decision, we offer post abortion counseling by our trained staff of counselors.Life Choices is committed to provide a non-judgmental and Christ-like environment designed to educate and empower women to make life-affirming decisions. The vision of Life Choices is to strategically change the procurement of abortion by providing intervention, education, and support services for women and families in crisis and by raising awareness in the community as to the obstacles we face and the opportunities available in addressing pro-life issues.
