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.

Now That's News: Respectful Dialogue on Abortion & Its Reduction

Want to hear a thoughtful, respectful conversation about abortion among prochoice and prolife Friends (Quakers)?

The host of the "Spirit in Action" program on Northern Spirit Radio, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, presents one with Stan Becker, a prochoice specialist in population and public health, and peace psychologist Rachel MacNair, coeditor of ProLife Feminism Yesterday and Today, the book behind the Nonviolent Choice Directory.

To hear such a thing, you can download the mp3 file of Toward Taking Away the Occasion of Abortion.

This episode of the "Spirit in Action" program is named after an excellent pamphlet from Quaker Earthcare.

My impression is that the men dominated the conversation, as men tend to do, often without realizing it consciously. But they were trying to include Rachel's voice and listen, and that's a move out of intergender and prochoice/prolife dynamics as usual.
