Our vision for abortion conversations

We envision a world in which abortion is affirmed as a moral decision without stigma. We believe that open and honest conversations, in a safe environment, about the experience of abortion will begin to create this world.

Abortion Conversation Projects is committed to eliminating the stigma of abortion by creating and supporting new ways and opportunities to talk about abortion honestly and publicly. The real life experiences of people who choose abortion, those who support them and abortion care providers will enable all people to better understand and appreciate the complex moral decision making surrounding a pregnancy decision.

We pledge open conversations that do not demonize those with differing views, or convince anyone that we are “right”. We recognize the transformative power of pregnancy and all its possibilities. We realize that decisions about pregnancy bring up issues of life, death, sex, parenthood, and so much more. We want to create safe spaces for everyone to consider what is best for their lives.
