"Nobody ever wants an abortion, but an unplanned pregnancy can turn into a crisis when parents don't feel like they have the support or resources necessary to raise the child," said Kelly Tolman, co-founder of Seneca, Choices for Life, Inc. "Instead of just telling them, 'Hey, that's a human life. Don't get an abortion,' our goal is to be able to say to them, 'We can offer you that support, and connect you to those resources, whether it is help finishing your education, getting a job, finding childcare, etc. You can do this.'"

Seneca Choices for Life, Inc. exists to meet the immediate and long-term needs of parents experiencing unplanned pregnancies. The goal is for these parents to create a self-sustaining, safe and healthy living environment for themselves and their children.
