HISTORICAL NOTE

In 1970, the Philadelphia Clergy Consultation Service (CCS) began training women from the Pennsylvania Abortion Rights Association (PARA) to provide pregnancy options counseling. In 1971, these women founded CHOICE (an acronym that originally stood for Concern for Health Options, Information, Care and Education, and later stood on its own). In 1973 CHOICE was granted non-profit status. The organization has received funding from a number of sources, including MSP (Maternity Services Program, Philadelphia Department of Public Health; formerly known as MIC, Maternal and Infant Care Program), the Family Planning Council of Southeastern Pennsylvania, Women’s Way, and AACO (AIDS Activities Coordinating Office, Philadelphia Department of Health).

Initially, the main focus of CHOICE was to provide options counseling for pregnant women. This counseling included helping women access out-of-state abortion services prior to the Supreme Court decision on Roe vs. Wade, issued in 1973. Over the years, CHOICE has expanded its services to provide information and referrals related not only to pregnancy options, but also to a wide variety of reproductive health issues (such as sexually transmitted diseases, prenatal care, and childbirth), AIDS, and childcare. On its web site (http://www.choice-phila.org/about.htm) in 2001, CHOICE described itself as "a clearinghouse of reproductive and sexual health information, including family planning, pregnancy options and disease transmission/prevention" and as a provider of "referrals, counseling, education, and advocacy" to women and teens, particularly "those not well served by traditional institutions." The gathering and dissemination of information, as well as related patient advocacy and outreach, were and continue to be primary functions of CHOICE.

In 1975, CHOICE began one of its main projects, a telephone hotline. The CHOICE Hotline provides information and referrals on a range of reproductive-related issues. With stabilization of funding from the Philadelphia Family Council in 1978, the Hotline expanded its staff. In 1981, in response to the needs of its callers, CHOICE began to collect information related to childcare (resources and referrals), and in 1982 began providing bilingual/bicultural (Spanish) counseling. In 1988, CHOICE was contracted by the Philadelphia Department of Public health to operate the Community AIDS Hotline (985-AIDS). 1991 saw an increase in both prenatal care and AIDs-related calls to CHOICE’s two hotlines, and in 1994, the Community AIDS Hotline expanded its scope to include more of the greater Philadelphia area.

Publications have included the CHOICE newsletter Resource and News Bulletin; An Abortion Guide: Where and How to Get a Safe Abortion in the Philadelphia Area; Changes: You and Your Body; Insights into Health Rights: Women's Rights in Pennsylvania; Childbirth Choices; Mommy, Why is that Lady's Tummy So Big; and Cambios (Changes in Spanish).

ORGANIZATION AND ARRANGEMENT
 
Accession 859 is divided into six series as follows:

Series I. Administrative
Series II. Agencies
Series III. Health Issues
Series IV. Publications
Series V. Audio-Visual
Series VI. Memorabilia

Series I - Administrative:

Complete in six boxes, the administrative series has been broken down into the following sub-series: Board, Certificates, Financial, Financial-Funding, Executive Directors, Programs-Hotline (HL), -AIDS, -Child care/Daycare (CC/DC), -PR/Training/Outreach (PR/T/O), Personnel, -Policies, -Searches, Data Prep, Hotline/Database (HLDB) and Miscellaneous (Misc.).

Much of this material dates from the late 1980s through to 1996 and 1997. The occasional "historical" document from the 70s suggests that these files were working files from the latter time-frame (90s), for which key 70s and 80s had been retained, with the rest of the earlier documents presumably elsewhere or not retained.

Covering this relatively truncated time-frame (1988-1995), these files document to a bit more depth programs (hotline, AIDS in particular) and personnel searches. Board activity is reflected not only in the board sub-series, but also in the ones relating to funding and programs (viz. long range planning). These materials cover the normal range: correspondence, memos, notes, resumes, forms, financial reports, agenda, minutes, and proposals.

Series II - Agencies:

CHOICE worked closely with many agencies that dealt with various health issues, programs that helped with child care, and information networks. Clients call CHOICE for information and after the need is identified, the caller is referred to the appropriate agency or information network. There are nine boxes that include packets of information. Because many of the foldelrs only contain the acronym, following is a list of many of the agencies that CHOICE was closely affliliated with:

AACO-AIDS Activities Coordinating Office
DVCCC-Delaware Valley Child Care Council
FPC-Family Planning Council
GPWMF-Greater Philadelphia Women's Medical Fund
HMA-Healthcare Mangement Alternatives
MCC-Marternity Care Coalition
MOCS-Mayor's Office of Community Services
MSP-Maternity Services Program (f.k.a: MIC, maternal and infant care program and MIH, maternal and infant health)
NIM-Northwest Interfaith Movement PHMC-Philadelphia Health Mangement Corporation
TPAC-The Philadelphia AIDS Consortium

Series III - Health Issues:

Designed to keep the individuals who answered the hotline up-to-date and informed, the health issues series cover the spectrum of issues relating to women and reproductive health care. Reproductive issues like abortion, birth control, pregnancy and child birth form the core of this collection. While the emphasis is definitely on health issues from a woman's perspective, material relating to the hotlines' two other areas, AIDS and child care, is also present. It should also be noted that the topics that start out being about women, invariably get back to discussions and treatments for men as well. These files date from the 70s to the 90s, with a strong 70s representation. Some materials are considered sensitive and some restrictions may apply. This series is housed in 15 boxes. CHOICE organized these files into an alphabetical arrangement, with some topics covering quite a bit of ground (gynecology for example embraces infertility, breasts and breast cancer, and STDs (sexually transmitted diseases)).

Three boxes of materials relating to abortion document several aspects including: legislative developments (e.g. the various Abortion Control Acts), effects and wording of medicaid cut-off and consent rulings, clinics and providers, regulations for health centers, evaluations and criteria, patient advocates and anti-choice activity (viz. hotlines) and centers.

Material relating to abortion providers is extensive, including almost two boxes, with a number of files early (70s) materials. CHOICE articulated standards and criteria for clinics, evaluated providers and published the results in their newsletter, Resource and News Bulletin . The files relating to providers document some of this activity, with correspondence, check lists, notes and drafts. Individual questionnaires, say for Temple, are included along with notated responses.

Patient advocacy is documented, including many case histories, naturally all sensitive information, although not all cases specify the individual's name. There are also numerous CHOICE Hotline Consumer Feedback forms which document specific cases with narratives, but which do so without naming specific individuals (consumer is identified briefly by age or residence). The provider files also routinely carry brochures and other clinic publications. Press clippings dot the files as well.

One folder within the abortion files illustrates some of the richness of the material. Philadelphia Family Planning file dates from 1971 to 1973, making it particularly interesting as some of it pre-dates Roe v. Wade, and therefore abortion activity before it was legalized.

This file (Philadelphia Family Planning) documents CHOICE's interest in advocating for the female health consumer. A letter from Elizabeth Longstreth (Pres. of the CHOICE board) dated 6/7/72 itemizes CHOICES concerns with the operation of the clinic including wanting to know about: medical standards, total number of and major complications, referrals, problems with heavy scheduling, and fees and availability to medicaid patients, among other things. As far as family planning clinics in general were concerned, this involved defining what was necessary medically, for example: which tests are done (pregnancy, pap smear, rhogram), whether or not sterile technique was employed, availability of emergency equipment and of emergency protocols, birth control methods covered, and kind of follow-up procedures stipulated. In addition to the medical bottom-line, CHOICE patient advocates were attuned to the experience of the woman including what she went through and how she was treated. Attention was paid to attitude and this was translated into policy. Policies relating to the finances of the clinics were also of interest to CHOICE. The end-point in this process was making sure the clinics were made accountable and improvements were made. This file and others like it document some of those beginnings, with as noted above, policies, correspondence, notes and articles.

Birth Control files fill two boxes. Materials routinely include pharmaceutical inserts, product information, studies, clippings, correspondence and occasional protocols. Interestingly much of the product information has been annotated (highlighted or with notations), presumably by CHOICE staff. A sample disposable diaphragm has been removed and placed in the Memorabilia series. Although emphasis here tends to be on oral contraceptives and device-related contraception (cervical cap, IUD and the sponge), files relating to special populations are also present (teens and Vietnamese/Cambodian family planning manuals) as are natural methods of birth control (rhythm, basal body temperature (BBT) and cervical mucus readings), etc.

Gynecological files ("Gyn-"), although a bit less extensive than the files noted above, are significant for their documentation on infertility and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Here again, an emphasis on technical literature abounds: medical letters, protocols, inserts, reprints and photocopies of journal articles. Much attention is paid to tracking development of tests (i.e. for specific STDs) and to printed information given to patients for the various infertility treatments. The entire spectrum of this brave new world (treating infertility) is nicely tracked with the above as well as clippings and correspondence.

Naturally this material concentrates in the 1980s and 90s. To provide a little context: The first test-tube baby, Louise Brown, is born in 1978. It takes three more years for the first one to be born in the States and the more complex GIFT procedure isn't developed til the late 80s.

CHOICE staff was not shy about contacting providers for clarifications or for input and also as above, annotating materials received, with underlining and highlighting.

Files on breasts naturally track breast cancer detection and treatment for this time period (1970s to 1990s) with journal articles and reprints and clippings. Instructions and methods for breast self-exam abound, of course, including, interestingly one from the 1950s.

Pregnancy and childbirth is also documented to some depth. Notable groupings herein: prenatal care, fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), drug use, and teen pregnancy. Materials are predominantly articles, clippings, brochures and other publications.

The number, variety, and type of publications designed for the emergent adolescent is noteworthy as well. Rocky Mountain Family Planning Clinic (Colorado) attacks this issue head on for different niches. One booklet called "The Perils of Puberty," for example, is designed specifically for young women and stresses the psycho-social over the anatomical realities of their new universes (i.e. behaviors, mind-sets and options over fallopian tubes and ovulation). Another does the same, only differently (of course) for young men. Plenty of examples of the former (traditional booklet with charts detailing relevant anatomical facts) are extant as well. The material relating to teen sexuality is not limited to booklets but includes clippings, surveys, questionnaires and articles.

Feminism and the women's health movement are also documented ("sex" and "medical profession"). For a limited collection, these files manage to carry, for example, the amazing article by Jo Freeman in the Second Wave : "The Building of the Gilded Cage," a fundamental building block in the movement's literature. This along with several items serve to give a flavor of the height of the women's liberation movement in the 1970s.

In addition to the general feminist materials, this collection carries a number of pieces specifically adumbrating aspects of the women's health movement, which of course has only expanded from those origins since then. Feminism's impact on health care exploded the normal definitions of delivery. So for example, while it used to be normal practice for the woman to interact as little as possible with the doctor, feminist models of these encounters encouraged healthy interactions from both patient and doctor, questions and information, flying freely as it were. All of this is enunciated within the files, via articles, clippings, other publications and correspondence.

As noted above, much of the technical literature has been annotated by CHOICE staff. In addition to providing guidelines for the hurried researcher, these annotations also tell us what CHOICE thought to be significant within these texts. It should also be noted that another (semi-unique or in this case) unique type of information extant in these files is handwritten notes from workshops and seminars on specific topics (e.g. in vitro fertilization, bi-phasic pill, reproductive physiology and endometriosis). Presumably, these were state-of-the art lectures detailing the latest specialized information at the time.

Series IV - Publication:

The publication series includes 2 boxes of books, 3 boxes of newsclippings and 7 boxes of pamphlets. Most of the publications are related to the materials housed in the agencies and health issues series.

Series V - Audio-Visual:

The audio visual series is mostly video tapes and is housed in 1 box.

Series VI - Memorabilia:

There is one box of memorabilia.


Accession 900 is divided into two series:

Series I – Administration

This series consists of two full boxes that date from the mid-1970’s to the early 1990’s, with a stronger late seventies and early to mid eighties representation. The series includes correspondence, personnel files, legal documents, financial reports, television and radio ad scripts, and an overview and history of CHOICE. The series is broken down into eight sub-series: -History, -Personnel, -Legal, -Financial, -Projects, -Outreach and Fundraising, -Publications, and -Miscellaneous.

The History sub-series provides background on CHOICE starting from its inception. In folder 1-4, every annual report from 1973-1993 is represented. Also in this sub-series is a student paper by Helen Burns about CHOICE. The Personnel sub-series is comprised of records on CHOICE staff members and student intern programs. Folder 1-5 contains meeting minutes, CHOICE personnel policies, and insurance plans for employees. While there is material on long range planning for CHOICE in this sub-series, most of the documents are directly related to short-term personnel. The Legal sub-series includes a letter in folder 1-22 from CHOICE to Senator Richard Schweiker which asks for the Senator’s support on abortion issues. The Financial sub-series includes financial reports, annual reports, and audits.

The Project sub-series incorporates budgets, correspondence, reports, and contracts. Significantly, this sub-series shows a relationship between CHOICE and other organizations such as the Mother and Infant Care Program (MIC), the Family Planning Council (FPC), and The Women’s Health Concerns Committee. There are also documents on CHOICE’s collaboration with the entertainer Patty LaBelle. Along with records on fundraising dinners, the Outreach and Fundraising sub-series includes scripts for television and radio spots. The Publications sub-series is broken down into publications about CHOICE and publications that CHOICE helped create for education purposes. The Miscellaneous sub-series folder 2-53 includes an abortion clinic evaluation form.

Series II – Health Issues Series

The materials in this series were presumably used to provide information to those staffing CHOICE’s telephone hotlines: the CHOICE Hotline (begun in 1975) and the Community AIDS Hotline, 985-AIDS (operated by CHOICE under contract with the Philadelphia Department of Health starting in 1988). Both hotlines continue to the present day.

CHOICE was also under contract with the City of Philadelphia to provide "outreach, information, referrals, and consumer feedback for the Maternity Services Program (MSP) and the AIDS Activities Coordinating Office (AACO)" (CHOICE Resource Notebook, 1991, Folder 5). It is possible that much of the material housed in this series may have served the dual purpose of meeting these obligations.

The material in the Health Issues Series is housed in four boxes, and dates from 1976 to 1994. The Health Issues Series is divided into two sub-series, -Maternity and –AIDS.


Sub-series: Maternity
This sub-series consists of two boxes, with dates of materials scattered from 1976-1994 with a stronger late eighties and early nineties representation. In 1979, CHOICE extended its services to encompass maternity and childbirth, and began gathering information on issues related to these topics. At this time CHOICE also began compiling a "resource listing of childbirth options and services available to expectant parents in the Philadelphia area" (CHOICE Press Release, April 13, 1979, Folder 1-8).

The materials included in this sub-series appear to have been gathered to provide maternity-related reference material for counselors operating the hotline, and may have also been used to help update or supplement the information manual that CHOICE provided for its counselors. (The fact that editions of this manual were located by CHOICE in the front of the boxes containing maternity information suggests that this may have been the case.)

The files in the Maternity sub-series have been left in their original order, with the exception of rearrangement of the CHOICE manuals into chronological order. In addition, folders 4-24 to 4-36 were originally housed together in a different box, presumably for reasons related to space. The original labels given by CHOICE have also been retained, unless bracketed.

The maternity sub-series contains a mixture of pamphlets (sometimes annotated), reports, and questionnaires, as well as some correspondence, newspaper clippings, and notes. These materials concern a plethora of agencies and a wide variety of topics related to prenatal care, postnatal issues, and childbirth. Generally these documents were grouped by CHOICE by topic or agency, and can be summarized as falling into three categories:
   •    Agencies and programs involved in the provision of maternity care and advice: Mainly publications (pamphlets, newsletters, some annotated, presumably by CHOICE), but dotted with correspondence, news clippings, reports, and notes. The amount of material collected on agencies varies from agency to agency.
   •    CHOICE accounts of these agencies: Reports, questionnaires (both drafts, blank questionnaires, and completed questionnaires), and notes.
   •    Information on pre and postnatal health issues and concerns: Reports, news clippings, and notes, presumably taken by CHOICE staff.

CHOICE was under contract with MIC (Maternal and Infant Care Program), later known as MSP (Maternity Services Program) to publicize MIC/MSP programs, and to provide referrals to and feedback on services. (MIC provided, and MSP continues to provide, an array of pre- and post-natal care for underage and/or low-income women and teenagers in the Philadelphia area.) To that end, documents related to MSP sites and providers are included in this sub-series. Much of this information is brought together in the CHOICE Resource Notebook for Options Counselors, a manual begun in 1971 and updated thereafter by CHOICE staff and volunteers. The Notebook was meant as a reference tool for counselors serving women "with unplanned pregnancies and other reproductive health concerns." Several editions of this notebook, under various titles (Folders 1 through 5) present a wealth of maternity-related information, including over fifty pages of prenatal provider profiles in the 1991 edition (Folder 5). Folder 12 houses a pre-1986 prenatal notebook, and includes evaluation forms of maternity services from an earlier era.

Overall, the sub-series is rich in materials concerning prenatal services and providers in Philadelphia, and to a lesser extent, the surrounding counties. Also notable is the folder of material relating to WIC (including forms, reports, policies, and guidelines for breastfeeding activities) and several files about midwife services (most notably Folder 3-25, which includes completed surveys on midwife service providers). Notable publications retained by CHOICE include "Access to Maternity Care for Low Income Women: A Needs Assessment Survey," presented to the American Public Health Association in 1989 (Folder 19), "Interest Groups and the HAS of Southeastern Pennsylvania: The Women’s Health Concerns Committee Case Study of 1978" (Folder 23), and "Generations in Jeopardy: Responding to HIV Infection in Children, Women, and Adolescents in New Jersey" (a report from the Jersey Pediatric AIDS Advisory Committee, September 1989).

A small amount of material of an administrative nature related to the Maternity Project and MIC is located in the Administrative Series/Sub-series Projects division pf this accession. It should be noted that pregnancy and childbirth are also documented to some depth in CHOICE Accession 859.

Sub-Series: AIDS
This sub-series consists of two full boxes, with dates of materials scattered between 1977 and 1994 with a preponderance of materials from the late eighties and early nineties. In 1988 CHOICE received a contract from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to operate 985-AIDS, the Community AIDS Hotline. In 1992 CHOICE produced a lengthy AIDS Resource Directory for Philadelphia. The bulk of the materials contained in this accretion appear to straddle these two significant events.

The files in the AIDS sub-series have been left in their original order. The original labels given by CHOICE have been retained, unless bracketed.

The AIDS sub-series contains a mélange of document types. There are government publications, position papers, brochures, newspaper clippings, checklists, even a Spanish-language fumetti (a sort of photographic comic book). There are no correspondence files, and no health records or other materials of a clearly confidential nature. In many cases the files contain only marginal information regarding a program. Clearly CHOICE was interested in amassing as much material on the AIDS crisis as was possible.

Overall, the AIDS sub-series is strong on contributions by community organizations (African-American and Hispanic groups are well-represented) but weak on official documents generated by the federal or state government. There is little or no material that might be considered personal in nature. This collection would be most useful to researchers interested in the community response to AIDS.
