The heart of our work is our bilingual ACCESS Healthline, and it is a crucial link to resources for women in need of reproductive healthcare.  We provide free and confidential information, referrals, advocacy and peer counseling on the full range of reproductive and sexual health issues, with a special expertise in pregnancy options and abortion services.

Call us if you have questions regarding: abortion, birth control, pregnancy, prenatal care, emergency contraception, pap smears, infertility, STIs & HIV, adoption, midwifery, teen health, safer sex and relationships, health insurance, or where to find a reproductive healthcare provider.

We connect women with free and low-cost programs that pay for this care, such as FamilyPACT, Medi-Cal or AIM (Access for Infants and Mothers).  We also refer to organizations that can help with  other issues such as domestic violence, sexual assault, drug addiction, homelessness and child care.  We offer a dedicated full-time Spanish healthline and additional languages may be provided.
We may also be able to help with transportation, housing or funding if you have to travel a long way to get to an abortion provider. Our services are open to all women and men living in California — your age, income, insurance or immigration status does not matter!
The National Abortion Federation Hotline is available to answer any questions you may have about abortion, unintended pregnancy, or related issues. The Hotline is free, completely anonymous, and offers services to everyone, regardless of their individual situation.

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

Backline revolutionizes services through our Talk Line and training services, which offer a unique model of inclusive and nonjudgmental support across the spectrum of pregnancy experiences, and enable other providers and reproductive health and justice organizations to expand and strengthen the way they serve women and pregnant people.

Backline transforms awareness of reproductive decision-making and experiences with abortion, adoption, parenting, birth and pregnancy loss by listening to our diverse communities and offering new voices and ideas that challenge stereotypes and stigma. We use media, research publications, and community dialogues to explore, identify and share a vision of support for all reproductive decisions, feelings and experiences.

Backline weaves networks among organizations and individuals involved in all aspects of pregnancy, parenting, abortion and adoption. Our regional convenings break down silos and build relationships across different experiences and perspectives, increasing empathy and the availability of nonjudgmental support, and bringing new voices into the movement for reproductive justice.
