FA is a refreshing approach to faith/ethical education/services. E.D. skilled in collaborative programming and highly respected by agencies and legislators. I write as former E.D. under Missouri RCRC also chair of national board. FA offers comprehensive smart approach to range of shared concerns. I'm hugely proud of their young achievements!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching Transition from MO Religious Coalition to new creative smart organization. Use of new technologies to build partnerships is stunning. During change ED has retained core leaders while engaging new leadership.

Faith Aloud helps people who are in spiritual turmoil find peace that releases them from the drain of guilt and shame when choosing to abort a problem pregnancy. Their writings, phone counseling, and videos are a powerful comfort and strength in the midst of anti-abortion bombardment when women are making a major life decision to end a pregnancy. When patients come to The Hope Clinic for Women, where I work, and are assailed by loud, judgmental protesters as they walk in to the clinic, Faith Aloud materials salve the wounds and strengthen people's faith in a God of love and mercy. I've seen these materials make the difference between a patient having a distressing, painful abortion and one that is physically more bearable due to their sense of spiritual peace.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the emotional and spiritual relief our patients show after they have read materials or watched the Faith Aloud video.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them a huge financial boost, so Faith Aloud could spread all over the U.S. and Canada.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The Director uses the experience of the abortion care providers - especially those of us who are counselors - and is both creative and prolific in writing materials and making videos that are PERFECT (relevant, user-friendly, empowering) for our patients!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

committed, friendly, knowledgeable, and energetic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a positive impact on so many more people who are suffering spiritually because the well-financed anti-abortion fanatics use religion to shame and condemn good people making hard reproductive decisions.

Ways to make it better...

It couldn't have been better!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial backing.

One thing I'd also say is that...

The world would be a better place if Faith Aloud would have a strong presence in every major city!

Everyday I get to see the impact Faith Aloud has made in helping the clients I serve explore the spiritual and ethical components of the reproductive and sexual decisions the clients make. Without Faith Aloud, my clients would likely only be inundated with misinformation by other spiritual leaders who believe there is only path to God (or heaven, or goodness, or peace, or to whatever path the individual aspires). So many other spiritual leaders teach that only a "certain" type of woman obtains reproductive health services. Through the work of Faith Aloud, my hope is finally we may show the whole world that, indeed, GOOD women choose abortion. In addition to the invaluable service Faith Aloud provides to individual clients, I can not speak highly enough of the services this organization provides to the health care providers ourselves. Through in-services, one-on-one teaching, and numerous resources at our disposal, Faith Aloud teaches us how to better serve our clients; and for that, I am eternally grateful. Thank you, Faith Aloud, for making me a better nurse. To Faith Aloud: Thank you for helping women, helping providers, and helping the world.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Many of my clients who have needed to clarify their own spiritual beliefs regarding a choice whether to end a pregnancy have received help through Faith Aloud resources. Some then decide to end the pregnancy, some continue. Either way, it is beautiful.

Faith Aloud has been a tremendous help to me in my experience counseling patients. I have a Christian background, but do not identify as a Christian, so it can be difficult for me to convey what is so eloquently, kindly and respectfully communicated in the Faith Aloud DVD. I love the little card, too, because of the scripture on the back: "Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ." Women need to hear this message who are having spiritual conflict with their decision to have an abortion. These may be things they have heard before, but not in the context of an abortion experience. It is acknowledging what they are going through, validating them as women who deserve respect and love, and giving them permission to feel the Lord's presence every step of the way. If they have this message to hold onto throughout their healing process, it can affect them positively for years to come.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the effect it's had on the women I serve, and how it has improved my abilities as a counselor.

I have never met anyone from Faith Aloud.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

spread their message to more women in need of spiritual comfort and encouragement, and to change the hearts/minds of Christians who are judgmental of women having abortions.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

probably financial. I would imagine that a large part of the Christian community would not be supportive of Faith Aloud. It is hard to stay affloat when you are a not for

Faith Aloud has produced great resources for the abortion care community in a short amount of time. I have seen patients watching their videos with tears streaming down their faces. One woman said, "This is exactly what I needed." Faith Aloud has created the missing link for a great number of women for whom spirituality and religion is important. The affirmation they offer has a huge impact on individuals and how they cope before, after and during an abortion. I have also given substantial amounts of money to Faith Aloud and they have been most frugal and productive with the moneys they receive. They seem to be good stewards of the funds they have and also make good use of volunteers. They are also remarkable in their use of social media and the latest technology.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have used Faith Aloud materials in my clinic and also promoted them to other independent providers through the Abortion Care Network.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their ability to respond to needs quickly and innovatively. Ex: their rapid response to 40 Days of Life campaign against providers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Smart, enthusiastice, diverse.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a real dent in taking back the moral high ground in the Abortion War.

I'm a consultant who works with abortion clinics across the country. In my work I train counselors and medical staff and have found the Faith Aloud materials incredibly valuable. Staff get to work through their own religious and spiritual issues while helping women in their clinics do the same. The DVD that Rebecca Turner created for patients is one of the most powerful counseling tools available to abortion providers. I strongly support this organization and their work.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Training materials for abortion clinic staff; the use of their DVD when counseling patients in abortion facilities; and using Faith Aloud materials when I speak to university students.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

See them generously funded so this group can move forward with all its plans.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the quality of training materials and heartfelt desire to reduce the stigma surrounding abortion.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

High energy and deeply committed to their mission. There is a wonderful diversity among this group - in age, gender, ethnicity, and religious background. Each wants desperately to eliminate stigma surrounding abortion.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

work to shift the media's portrayal of abortion the way GLAAD has shifted the perceptions of gay people; train clergy across the country to supportively counsel women concerning abortion; provide information and training to divinity and clergy students.

Ways to make it better...

Faith Aloud had the kind of funding it deserves. Shifting the culture surrounding abortion in the world is no easy task - it requires many committed people and adequate funding to make real progress.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

maintaining and building a national presence. There are numerous individuals and organizations linked to Faith Aloud - yet few are able to provide the financial support required to sustain the organizations goals.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Rebecca Turner is tenacious. She has weathered huge drops in funding and loss of Faith Aloud's office and continues to push forward in her work. Her effort to counteract the impact of anti-abortion protesters is positively remarkable.
