Detailed Collection Information

Historical Note

CHOICE (Concern for Health Options, Information, Care and Education) was founded in 1971,
to provide options counseling for pregnant women, including helping women access abortion services. Over time, CHOICE expanded its work to provide information and referrals on a wide variety of reproductive health issues, such as sexually transmitted diseases, prenatal care, childbirth, HIV/AIDS, and childcare. CHOICE also endorsed and/or gave testimony on important legislative decisions regarding reproductive health issues for women.

Gathering and disseminating reproductive health information, patient advocacy, and outreach were primary functions of CHOICE. In the 1970s, it instituted a telephone hotline that provided information and referrals on reproductive health and other related issues. The hotline offered counselling in English and Spanish. In 1988, CHOICE was contracted by the Philadelphia Department of Public Health to operate the Community AIDS Hotline. CHOICE also reached out to youth through programs like CHOICE Connection, a teen performance group.

In 2015, CHOICE merged with AccessMatters (formerly the Family Planning Council, Philadelphia, Pa.), a long term partner organization.

Description of Collection

The CHOICE Records documents the organization’s administration, programs, and finances from 1970 to 2007, with preserved versions of website for both CHOICE and AccessMatters, available through Archive-It through 2016. The collection also houses brochures and other informational literature collected on a variety of reproductive health issues. More specifically, researchers will find board meeting minutes, committee records, staff records, especially records of executive directors, records relating to the telephone hotline and other public programs, and examples of CHOICE publications. In addition to collected printed informational literature, there are audio/visual materials, mostly educational productions and public service announcements on sex and human development, STDS, and family planning.

The collection is comprised of multiple accessions, which are maintained separately. Three (859, 900, and 2015-14), are cataloged in this finding aid. There is a printed inventory for Accession 897, which can be reviewed on site in the SCRC reading room. Researchers are advised to peruse all accessions, as content overlaps. Note that the organization and arrangement of each accession varies significantly. When requesting materials from this collection, researchers are asked to specify the accession number and the box number.
