Description:

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 moving audiobook, 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. Distrusted by both sides, Exhale now receives post abortion referrals from pro-life and pro-choice organizations. Baker examines the history of the abortion debate, identifying mistakes and misunderstandings that have led us to the current painful divide. Our world is full of gray areas. It’s vital we learn practices like pro-voice to help move us from paralysis to progress.

Quotes:

...Baker's message to activists is powerful: when we hear one another as people and not as enemies, we create a world in which authenticity and innovation can help us find a way past entrenched obstacles to social change.', Publishers Weekly

I recently learned that I already was pro-voice, and when you read this book you will likely discover that you are too. Together we can transform the ‘us versus them' dynamic that dominates our politics and media. Together we can create a new norm of respectful, caring engagement.', Joan Blades, , founder of MoveOn.org, MomsRising, & Living Room Conversations

With Pro-Voice, Aspen Baker revels in the deep discomfort of ambiguity rather than the shallow, sure waters of polemic. It is a testament to the transformational possibility of exploring the neglected gray area beyond the overly traveled black and white. I've never read anything quite like it.', Courtney E. Martin, , Author of Do It Anyway
