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.

This Is Womanhood?

Melissa Fryrear is an alumna of the "ex-gay" movement and a staff member of Focus on the Family, the aggressively anti-LGBT organization. Her story of leaving her lesbian life concludes as follows.

During my years of restoration, I also began to learn about this thing called womanhood. Goodness! Who knew there was so much to learn: plucking eyebrows, hair bleaches, hair waxings, facial mud masks, eye lash curlers, manicures, pedicures, push-up bras, tummy tuckers, rear-end boosters, last year’s colors, and next year’s fashions?

I also began to learn about boys. Let me say that if anyone thinks puberty is tough at fifteen, try it in your thirties!

Now let me see if I read this correctly?
--A mature and healthy female sexuality is all about boys?
--Womanhood is a matter of trying to impress said boys via ever-shifting, consumer-capitalism driven, bodily tortures, fripperies, and fakeries--some of which contain chemicals quite damaging to female (and when applicable, fetal) health?

I can only say, how depressing. How confining.
