When Aspen Baker had an abortion at 24, she felt caught between warring pro-life and pro-choice factions. 


In this hopeful and moving book, she shares how she and Exhale, the organization she cofounded, built a caring, nonjudgmental space for women and men to share their feelings about abortion, without choosing sides.

Baker describes how she and Exhale developed their “pro-voice” philosophy and the creative approaches they employed to help women and men have respectful, compassionate exchanges about even this most controversial of topics. 


Watch Aspen give the first-ever TED Talk about abortion in May 2015:

Aspen Baker named a Real Miss America by Mashable in September 2015:

“Baker’s message to activists is powerful: when we hear one another as people and not as enemies, we create a world in which authenticity and innovation can help us find a way past entrenched obstacles to social change.”
— Publishers Weekly
“I recently learned that I was already Pro-Voice, and when you read this book you will likely discover that you are too. Together we can transform the ‘us versus them’ dynamic that dominates our politics and media. Together we can create a new norm of respectful, caring engagement.”
— Joan Blades, Founder of MoveOn.org, MomsRising and Living Room Conversations
“Aspen Baker takes one of the most contentious issues of our age, and pulls an unexpected magic trick. Instead of delivering up a call to arms, she opens up a safe place for empathy, caring, and transformation. Because Aspen dared to share her story, we recognize the power of our own.”
— Glynn Washington, Creator and Host of NPR’s Snap Judgment
“I’ve never read anything quite like it.”
— Courtney E. Martin, author of Do It Anyway: The New Generation of Activists
