Pro-Voice Online Book Group


Note: The Exhale Pro-Voice After-Abortion Stories Hub includes people’s stories of their experiences and emotions, exactly as they have written them in. We do not edit these stories at all, and the content that follows this message is exactly as we received it. We know that people’s experiences are complex, and these stories reflect the many emotions they may be feeling after their abortions. From relief to grief, and everything in between, and all at the same time, we’re here for you.

Did you know there was book about Exhale Pro-Voice?

Pro-Voice: How to keep listening when the world wants a fight is an origin story written by Exhale Pro-Voice co-founder Aspen Baker.

When Aspen had an abortion at the age of twenty-four, she felt caught between the warring pro-life and pro-choice factions, with no safe space to share her feelings. The book describes how she and her collaborators developed the pro-voice philosophy and other creative approaches to help people have respectful, compassionate conversations about abortion. She shows how pro-voice can be adopted by anyone interested in replacing ideological gridlock with empathetic conversation.

This coming January, you can join Gwen Olton and Kit Miller of the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence while you read about Aspen’s story and the founding of Exhale Pro-Voice back in 2000.

This book group will meet for five weeks on Mondays from 7:00 – 8:30 pm ET, beginning January 9th and running until February 6th. Limit 25 participants. Offered on a sliding scale. The book is available on Amazon or anywhere you buy books.

The M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence is a nonprofit that equips people to use nonviolence to create a sustainable and just world for all. The Gandhi Institute collaborates with local organizations, academic institutions, students, and committed peacemakers.
