The Pro-Choice Movement has lost a lot of ground in the past 10 years. The cultural stigma that surrounds abortion is increasing instead of decreasing. Some of that backward motion is because of our own poor messaging strategies. Learn what we’re doing wrong and how to start changing our messages.

Rev. Rebecca Turner has been Executive Director of Faith Aloud since 2001, leading its mission “to eliminate the religious stigma of abortion and sexuality.” She is a minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ. Rev. Turner was recently named one of “13 Religious Women to Watch in 2012: Changing the World for Good” by the Center for American Progress in Washington, DC. In 2010 she was named “Person of the Year” by the Abortion Care Network and in 2008 she received an award from the Missouri Women’s Network for “Outstanding Contributions to Advance Women’s Equality.” Rev. Turner has been featured in Time Magazine, on PBS “Religion and Ethics Newsweekly,” on CNN “Anderson Cooper 360,” in the documentaries” Beyond the Politics of Life and Choice” and “South Dakota,” and in newspaper and web stories around the United States.
