We are called Life Connections…because connecting to us, helps you connect to the community. And by being connected, we can help each other live happier and healthier lives.
Who We Are
Life Connections is a pregnancy and parenting resource center that is open to anyone affected by an unplanned, unwanted, or pregnancy under less than ideal circumstances. Run by volunteers and donations, our office has been in Alexandria for over 45 years helping an estimated 6000 women, babies, & families.
Life Connections has a philosophy of avoiding politics and therefore direct involvement in pro-life or pro-choice political advocacy or arguments. We are not affiliated with any one church.
We are simply a group of helpers that know that an unplanned pregnancy is scary.
We also know that if we want to completely remove the stigma and struggles attached to unwed mothers or single parenting, we must help them find comfort, security and resources so that they know they are loved and not alone.
Life Connections provides a variety of services in-house and also refers clients to others in the community for many more specialized services.
We offer friendship, free pregnancy tests, love, hope and support, so that you can make a realistic plan for the future.
Life Connections is prepared to help you whether you are single or married regardless of age, race, gender, religion, or financial situation…even if you are the grandparents!
Although we don’t perform or refer for abortions, we will help you understand what you can expect from the abortion procedure. Gather your questions and make an appointment today to meet your advocate before scheduling an abortion.
Our certified Life Coaches can help you move forward in your life by helping you to define and set goals that will give you a much better chance at achieving your dreams. Please call or email us to set up an appointment for this option.
Feminism & Us
We believe that society has failed both women and families if abortion is their only choice for an undesired pregnancy. Feeling like you have only one choice, is not really much of “a choice” at that point. We have talked ourselves into thinking it’s freedom, when in fact we are being FORCED to choose this abortion option because our real needs are not being met.
We as individuals and as a group need to eliminate the root causes that drive women to choose abortion -- meaning that we need to provide emotional, spiritual, physical, relational, and monetary support, and the real resources to back it up.
All of the original feminists that were willing to die for the right for them to be treated as equal humans with the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, believed (and wrote about) -- without exception-- that ALL humans deserve the same rights as men…all women, every race, and yes, even unborn babies, who they knew were humans too.
Yes, the women who wanted to be protected by law wanted babies protected too, because they knew that it made no sense for them to declare that they were worthy of respect and basic rights, but other humans weren’t. And they also knew that when society talks women into abortions, that is society’s way of avoiding its responsibilities to help them. We as individuals and as a group need to eliminate the root causes that drive women to choose abortion -- meaning that we need to provide emotional, spiritual, physical, and monetary support, and the real resources to back it up.
