The Right to Life League of Antelope Valley flourished in the late 1960s as an independent education organization whose purpose was to raise community awareness to the anti-life threats of abortion.
In 1977, a decision was made to affiliate with the Right to Life League of Southern California, the largest and oldest pro-life organization in California. At that time, the “Life Line” (a 24-hour crisis hotline for pregnancy related issues), was established, staffed solely by volunteers. In March 1980, as a result of much hard work and planning, the Antelope Valley Pregnancy Counseling Center opened its doors in the city of Lancaster. The Life Line volunteers now had a place to refer women calling with a crisis pregnancy where they would receive a free pregnancy test, counseling, and material assistance. In March 2000, the Antelope Valley Pregnancy Center & Women’s Clinic opened its second counseling center located in Palmdale at the site of what was once an abortion clinic. In June 2004, the Palmdale Center converted into a licensed free medical clinic providing pregnancy testing, counseling, and ultrasounds.
AVPCC receives over 2,500 clients a year and receives over 3,000 lifeline calls a year.
