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.

Ahem... Better ways than abortion.
Unpfa is all about abortion. Analyse the composition of the rape kits sent to Haïti.
They won't miss an occasion to kill babies there too.

I suspect that a lot of antiabortion animosity against UNFPA is based not on abortion services--it neither provides nor promotes them-- but hostility to *contraception.*

Here is UNFPA's official policy on abortion:

http://www.unfpa.org/about/faqs.htm#abortion

UNFPA does advocate treatment for women suffering postabortion complications. But that's no more "proabortion" than post suicide attempt treatment is "prosuicide."

For those with religious oibjections to contraception--UNFPA provides many women with "natural" methods like CycleBeads as well as the "artifical" methods accepted by most of the world.

I assume that what you object to in the rape kits is emergency contraception?

There are Catholic hospitals who give it to rape victims.

A significant group within the American Association of Prolife Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) supports the use of hormonal contraceptives in general:

http://www.aaplog.org/PositionsAndPapers/OralContraceptiveControversy.aspx?fileID=3

Thus AAPLOG thus takes an "agree to disagree" rather than "opposed" stance on hormonal contraception. I happen to agree with the "support" position, which seems more shaped by scientific evidence than by a particular religious ideology.

And if you still deny that UNFPA does lifesaving work, including in Haiti, check this out:

UNFPA does far more to reduce abortion and provide positive alternatives on the planet than just about anyone.
