L.A. for Choice was founded in the fall of 2009 after the assassination of Dr. George Tiller. Our original name was 40 Days for Choice, in response to a nationwide anti-choice campaign that targets clinics twice a year for 40 days of intensified harassment. Our goal in the beginning was to provide volunteer escorts for clients of the local clinic that was targeted during these periods of escalated tension, but we soon realized that this 40-day campaign was only a small part of the year-round effort to harass and intimidate women at clinics all over Los Angeles.
To reflect our expanded mission, we changed our name to L.A. for Choice, and now our volunteers come out every Saturday to provide a friendly face and supportive voice to women seeking reproductive health care in Los Angeles.
This website is a place where clinic escorts, clients, clinic workers and other pro-choice Angelenos can connect and be heard.
