Abortion is one stigmatized topic that often is not discussed publicly – and most especially not in faith communities. Exhale launched a Pro-Voice sermon tour in 2016, featuring then Board member Rev. Susan Chorley who shared her abortion story from 8 different pulpits of Protestant congregations in 6 different cities. Her sermon and the discussion following offered a way to engage faith communities in exploring an open conversation on faith, healing and ritual.
Under Susan’s leadership, Exhale is continuing to explore partnerships with faith communities engaged in conversations on reproductive justice. And we are expanding our pro-voice approach within Muslim and Jewish communities of faith as well.
