Welcome! This is a brand new site with full content forthcoming. Here is a glimpse of our mission: “Pro-Woman, Pro-Voice” is a space created for those of us women who are facing long-term emotional challenges after choosing to have an abortion.
This is a *pro-choice* space, and a *secular* one as well.
We advocate for women’s rights and wellness, meaning our right as women to make our own reproductive choices and proactively tend to our holistic wellness throughout the phases of our days and our futures.
What makes our site unique is that we strongly advocate embracing the womanly right to share our stories which exist along spectrums of sadness, regret, grief, trauma, guilt, devastation, confusion, heartbreak, anger or isolation in the aftermath of abortion.
We feel that the sparseness of such resources for pro-choice women has trapped us in the grey area and impacted our wellness and freedom as women to be informed and empowered.
“Pro-Woman, Pro-Voice” embraces a feminist approach to compassionate support and solidarity. Our goal is to have a space to share, speak, read, listen and receive support for our often overlooked or silenced experiences.
(Please note that we, the site’s enthusiastic creators, are not clinicians or professional therapists. We are everyday women with extraordinary goals to create a better, more authentic, and more open pro-choice sisterhood of communication in a world that continuously tries to keep us divided, and dividing, over and over again.)
Our utmost wellness in this life and in this world requires us to free ourselves and bond together. This space is for us.
It is important for us to note that one of the many reasons (and we will divulge so many more of our reasons in future posts) that we have chosen to create this unique site is because we who have created it do not have all the answers. We do not always know how to 101% navigate and heal this aspect of our lives – We do have layers and a plethora of things to share and express from our perspectives and experiences, but we also want to provide a means to open doors to others to share and express ideas and insight. We do want and need, for our personal lives, suggestions about how to best help ourselves and others while living alongside our challenges and feelings. We are going to welcome having conversations within the realm of our comments section with our readers which are important to us all; conversations which are based in allowing ourselves and others to have their voice, in alignment with our mission/goal in creating this place.
We as site moderators will also have some clear boundaries which we will state and maintain as moderators of the site (i.e. no hate-speech, anti-woman, bigotry, or rejection of feminism among other things will be allowed here).
We do believe that this place will help us learn, build, sustain, and encourage moving through our days with a sense of kindness, learning how to prioritize self-care, with a sense of compassionate inner dialogue. And may this place encourage us embrace our own voice, no matter how faint or how clear it might be to us right now.
This site’s official launch will take place very soon – Please visit again this week!
