What would it look like to meet the full human needs of people who experience abortion? That’s what this episode is all about. Ashley and Katey talk about their year-long joint effort to create Abortions Welcome, a virtual space dedicated to providing spiritual support and accurate information to anyone who is preparing for, experiencing, or processing an abortion. Stay tuned for the official launch date sometime later in February.
We also talk about Katey’s new book A Complicated Choice: Making Space for Grief and Healing in the Pro-Choice Movement. This story-telling book explores the personal and systemic nuance of abortion and calls on people of faith to engage in sacred listening and compassionate response. A Complicated Choice releases on February 15th.
On our next episode we will talk more about Katey’s new book and how we can shift the public conversation about abortion from a place of judgment to a place of compassion.
