About us

Backline promotes unconditional and judgment-free support for decisions, feelings and experiences with pregnancy, parenting, abortion and adoption. Through direct service and social change strategies, we are building a world where all people can make the reproductive decisions that are right for their lives, without coercion or limitation, and where the dignity of lived experiences is honored and affirmed.

Backline is best known for our toll-free Talkline, staffed entirely by volunteer Advocates, our Pregnancy Options Workshop professional trainings, and our first-of-its-kind All-Options Pregnancy Resource Center in Bloomington, Indiana. 

Backline currently has 7 staff and 30 volunteers in Oakland, CA, Bloomington, IN, and Portland, OR, as well as a dynamic national board of directors.
