Welcome to Birthright of Columbia

Our Philosophy

Our focus is on positive and loving alternatives to abortion because we believe that, “It is the right of every pregnant woman to give birth, and the right of every child to be born.” We work with and through local agencies, ministries, churches, and individuals who can help achieve our objectives.

Our History

Birthright began in Toronto, Canada, in 1968, when Louise Summerhill, a busy wife and mother of seven children, felt something should be done to help women facing unplanned pregnancies. Twelve years later, in 1980, Hank and Sally Chardos opened the Columbia SC chapter, now one of about 250 locations served by Birthright International.

Our Ministry

We offer friendship and caring, non-judgmental support to anyone facing an unplanned or problem pregnancy. Assistance includes free and confidential pregnancy tests, maternity and baby clothes, and information and referrals for medical, financial, education, and housing needs. All are available to anyone regardless of age, race, creed, or marital status.


"My son is the light of my life. The support I received from Birthright provided hope."

"Birthright helped me obtain my G.E.D., even after my son was born."
