Who We Are & What We Do

Right By You exists to help young people in Missouri understand all pregnancy options and the help available no matter what decision they make. Right By You is committed to providing accurate, non-judgmental information on accessing abortion care, pregnancy and birth care, and parenting and adoption resources. We also provide information about accessing contraception, avoiding pregnancy and dealing with pregnancy scares.

Our text line volunteers respond with compassion and validation to provide the information our texters need to make decisions that are right for them. The text line is free, anonymous and confidential.

We respond to texts live on Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 5:00-8:00pm, and on Wednesdays & Fridays from 3:00-6:00pm. If you text us outside that time, we'll send you our live hours, along with links to some helpful information. During our next live hours, a text line volunteer will see that you have texted, and will respond to you then.
