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.

Pro Female Condoms, Anti Mandatory HPV Vaccine for Immigrant Women

Nonviolent Choice has signed on with Prevention Now, a coalition that wants to expand global access to female condoms in order to address the spread of HIV/AIDS as well as unintended pregnancies.

We are also an organizational endorser of a letter to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum. The letter protests mandatory HPV vaccinations for immigrant women. These are not mandatory for citizens, so why single out immigrant women? The policy also plays into a long history of demeaning immigrant women as supposed bearers of sexually transmitted diseases into the country.

Want to sign on as an individual? By 5 PM Eastern Time (US) on January 30, 2009, please sign the petition
