Our Mission

Birthright of San Jose is a privately funded, all volunteer, IRS-recognized tax exempt organization that is affiliated with Birthright International and is one of close to 300 offices in Canada, the U.S. and Africa. It is the mission of Birthright to offer free, personal, confidential, and non-judgmental support services to a woman facing a potential crisis pregnancy in order to free her to make the best choices for herself and her child. Among these services are a twenty-four hour hotline and a local office where we provide a pregnancy test, maternity and baby clothes, a trained ear to listen, referrals for community resources, and information on all options.

Birthright’s charter forbids lobbying or any involvement in the political sector. Instead, we focus on providing services to women and families in need in order to help them make healthy choices.
