Pro-Voice in ‘08

Turns out that abortion is becoming quite the hot button topic in this heated race to the White House. Each year abortion affects the lives of thousands of women, and in this election year we will finally hear what these women want from their next President.

Exhale , which operate the nation’s first and only nationwide non-judgmental after-abortion talkline, and RH Reality , an online forum that provides information and analysis on reproductive health issues, have teamed up to launch Pro-Voicein ’08 , a clever YouTube campaign that will given women the opportunity to candidly speak up about their personal experiences with abortion.

With the threat of a Roe reversal more real than ever before, it is time for women to share their stories and demand respect for the decisions they’ve made. The next President will determine whether women continue to have the right to decide what is best for their bodies so share your story today.

What should the next president say to convey his support and his respect for your personal experience with abortion?

This is so fantastic! Exhale is actually doing a lot of work to bring women's voices front and center to the abortion debate. The pro-voice approach is an incredible way for people with a range of experiences with abortion to speak their truths and be greeted w support and respect. Check out their other video "What Pro-Voice Means to Me" ...

Thank you so much for your comment and suggestion - this video is FANTASTIC! I love how the images focus closely on the women's faces and how we see a diversity of backgrounds and ages!
