Thank you so, so much for having this here. I was once in the horrifying position of being a Christian teen faced with the chance of an unwanted pregnancy. I felt so terrified, I didn't know what to do, I didn't know who to turn to, and I certainly didn't feel as though I could pray about it. Eventually the pregnancy terminated itself, but even then I stayed silent. My family, pastor, and friends never learned my secret.// I never want another woman to have to go through that choking fear and feel as though she has no where to go, and you people at Faith Aloud are helping that more then you know. You should be a staple in every clinic. What you do is wonderful, and something that I believe warms Jesus Christ's heart. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I wish nothing but love and wellness for this group.

Faith Aloud's work for reproductive freedom is very important to me and to the community they serve. By showing that people of faith support women's right to make their own decisions about their health and sexuality, not despite their faith values, but as an integral part of those faith values, Faith Aloud provides a much-needed counterpoint to those who continually and loudly proclaim that women are incapable of moral judgement and their health decisions must be made for them by unsympathetic lawmakers and clergy.

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

I have seen how empowered women of faith feel, by their reactions and feedback at events such as Pro-Choice Lobby Day at the state capitol.

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

I would like to have more networking between Faith Aloud members in my town(Columbia, MO) and my own NOW chapter plus other local groups.

You made me see that the decision to carry s pregnancy to delivery can be a very difficult one, and that a woman has to live with the results of that decision for the rest of her life. She also makes that decision based on her hopes and dreams, that unfortunately don't always work out the way she had planned. I feel this organization offers counseling to help girls make informed choices based on their individual situation. Keep up the good work.

Faith Aloud is an organization I am proud to refer my patients to. Finally, the support so many women are looking for is available through wonderful pro-choices clergy members. I am delighted to talk about Faith Aloud with my patients and give them literature and refer as necessary. Rev Turner has worked tirelessly to promote well-being and reduce stigma. The materials offered are incredibly helpful and conversation provoking in counseling sessions.
