While it may still be helpful to you, the Nonviolent Choice Website is not itself a social service agency or health care provider. We can supplement but cannot substitute for treatment and advice from qualified, credentialed health care workers such as a physician or social worker.
Are you in a situation where you and/or someone else face(s) immediate harm? Please call the appropriate local emergency services number for help.
In most US and Canadian locations, that’s 911 (for hearing-impaired/TTY users as for anyone else.) And many European Union member countries such as Poland use 112 as at least one of their emergency numbers. The right number may be in your local phone book, or here: Worldwide Emergency Telephone Numbers, maintained by FIESTA, the Filipino International Emergency Services Training Association. If you or a loved one are feeling suicidal, you may want to contact Befrienders Worldwide, who “listen to people who are in distress. We don’t judge them or tell them what to do – we listen.”
The Nonviolent Choice Website is a free information service, soon to become a project of All Our Lives, a pending nonprofit organization. Unless otherwise stated, please do not mistake an advertiser’s appearance on this site for its endorsement of all or any of the positions represented here.
The Nonviolent Choice Website takes care in selecting the resources that it lists and reviews. Yet we cannot be held responsible for the words or actions of any resource we list. Nor can any of our listed resources be held responsible for our words or actions.
Absolute privacy and security are not possible anywhere online. However, to the fullest extent permitted by US and state law and reasonable security precautions, the Nonviolent Choice Website will never intentionally disclose visitors’ identities.
Our Policy on Abortion: The Nonviolent Choice Website welcomes visitors of all opinions on abortion, whether or not you agree with our position. We do understand that thoughtful, compassionate people have deeply heartfelt reasons for disagreeing, and that women consider and have abortions for very serious reasons. A lot of common ground and useful information is to be found here; please explore! We simply want to be upfront with you that we do not list, refer for, or accept advertisements for abortion services. We are here to be part of the solution instead!
We do list organizations that advocate abortion rights if their main focus is on common-ground measures that in effect or by intent reduce abortion. The same is true for organizations that have a neutral position on abortion. We list abortion-opposing organizations only if they truly merit the name “prolife”–that is, the precious lives of abortion providers, and those of women and already-born children, matter as much to them as those of unborn humans.
