About the Book
When Aspen Baker 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 conflicted feelings. In this hopeful and moving book, Baker describes how she and Exhale, the organization she cofounded, developed their pro - voice philosophy and a set of tools that enable anyone to have respectful, compassionate exchanges about even the most contentious topics. Initially distrusted by both sides, Exhale now receives postabortion referrals from pro - life and pro - choice organizations. Baker examines the history of the abortion debate, identifying the mistakes and misunderstandings that have led us to the current painful divide. She shares how Exhale discovered creative ways to help women and men share their feelings about abortion, such as starting a postabortion telephone service and piloting a nationwide story - sharing tour led by women who'd had abortions. Thanks to Aspen Baker's innovative ideas and the trendsetting work of Exhale, the culture around abortion is changing. Pro - voice can be adopted by anyone interested in dialogue rather than dogma. Peace, in this perspective, isn't a world without fighting or conflict but one where conflict can be engaged in - fiercely and directly - without dehumanizing ourselves or our opponents. Our world is full of gray areas. It's vital we learn practices like pro - voice to help us move from paralysis to progress.
