Welcome & Thank You...

...for visiting the Blog of the Nonviolent Choice Directory.

We feature commentary but most of all action alerts on the same positive, abortion-reducing measures we cover in the Directory.

These measures include post abortion healing; male responsibility; comprehensive sexual/reproductive health education; all voluntary pregnancy prevention methods, plus rape and incest prevention & treatment; and life-affirming ways to get through crisis pregnancy and beyond.

Along with responding to our current action alerts, and participating in our Blog, you are welcome to volunteer with us.

How to Make $10 Go a Really Long Way--and Save Lives While You're at It

How far can $10 go these days? A lot more than a person in a dollar-rich country might imagine.

The newest edition of Family Planning: A Global Handbook for Providers is now available in English, in online and print editions, with translations forthcoming in at least ten more languages. As the Handbook's website states, it is "one of the World Health Organization’s Family Planning Cornerstones, provides evidence-based guidance developed through worldwide collaboration. It offers clinic-based health care professionals in developing countries the latest guidance on providing contraceptive methods."

Voluntary family planning is a proven lifesaver because it promotes maternal health and prevents maternal and fetal deaths and injuries from abortion. And for $10, you can put a print copy of the Handbook into the hands of a health care provider in the Two-Thirds World region of your choice. Just click on the above link and take it from there--and please do spread the word!

A word to people who have religious beliefs against what you all term "artificial methods": You might be interested to know that the Handbook covers the latest scientific knowledge concerning what you all call term "natural methods."
