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.

LGBT Phobia Promotes Abortion: Another Story in This Vein

The Catholic University of America banned the Pro Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians from cosponsoring the recent Students for Life conference held on its campus.

The US head of the Rainbow Sash Movement, which promotes greater visibility of LGBT Catholics, sent off a media release protesting the exclusion. Students for Life and many members of the CUA student body disagreed strongly with the administration's decision. Which, by the way, was made with a lack of transparency--the same thing that shrouds many other discriminatory decisions.

As well as the violation here of the rights to free speech and freedom of association....If the voices of LGBT people are not heard in the prolife movement, the movement is all the poorer. How can it be about the right to life of LGBT people, too? And what can it learn to do to help LGBT people who are at risk for, or currently experiencing, crisis pregnancies--a very real problem?
