I’m not just Pro-Choice, I am Pro-Voice.

I’m a big fan of Exhale, a pro voice organization that strives to create an open enviroment where women can talk about their unique abortion experiences without so much political polarization or social stigma.

Each woman makes choices in accord with their own system of values, hopes and circumstance. We cannot forgot that when we discuss the subject of abortion that it is not about “what I would do”, “what I want”. It is different for every person and we cannot flash one experience as the ulitmate truth.

Here some Pro-Voice supporters explain just what that means.

“Exhale offers a free, After-Abortion Talkline that provides emotional support, resources and information. The talkline is available to women and girls who have had abortions and to their partners, friends, allies and family members. All calls are completely confidential and counselors are non-judgmental.”

    This sounds like a fantastic project. Abortion is so highly charged- both politically- and perhaps more importantly- emotionally; that it can be very hard to find non-judgmental space to talk about it. If you’re a feminist you may feel like you can’t express negative emotions about a personal abortion experience without hurting the cause. Or you may not feel like you can express complete relief and happiness without seeming flippant and heartless. Women need to have a place to go with whatever they feel. I’m glad this exists. (and I just realized this is also open to partners and family- even better!)
