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.

Chinese Oppression of Tibetans: Take Action

The Chinese military has cracked down on peacefully protesting Tibetans in Lhasa, the capitol city. The Dalai Lama, exiled leader of the Tibetan people, has called for both the Chinese government and his fellow Tibetans to respond nonviolently.

China has occupied Tibet for roughly a half-century now, committing a seemingly endless litany of wrongs against its people and their previously well- cared for natural environment. Fr example, the Tibetan plateau has become a dumping ground for nuclear waste--never mind the threats to life and reproductive health.

The Chinese government has systematically committed genocide against Tibetans through forced abortions and sterilization abuse, and by moving an overwhelming number of Han Chinese into the country without consulting the wishes of its original inhabitants.

Please stand in solidarity with the Tibetan people, at home and in global diaspora, by joining the International Campaign for Tibet's Action Network.

The Dalai Lama, incidentally, is an endorser of the Consistent Life Mission Statement. While identifying abortion as unjust lifetaking, he strongly supports voluntary contraception and women's rights (for example, by working for female Buddhist monastics to have full ordination status just like their male peers).
