When you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy, you want to know and understand what your pregnancy options are. Our confidential peer counseling program is designed to answer all of your questions.
When you arrive at the Center, we’ll gather some basic information about you, and then you’ll meet with one of our trained peer counselors. After asking a few questions that will help us get to know you better, you will be given a free pregnancy test.
If you have a positive pregnancy test, we can discuss your pregnancy options.
The Southern Tier PRC offers: Information on Abortion: Many women choose to have abortions without truly understanding what the various abortion procedures include. If you would like information on abortion*, we can go over the procedures with you so that you can make an informed and educated decision.
