Emerge: Sharing Our Voices, Supporting Our Choices.
Emerge is a discussion and support group for women who have had an abortion. Women who participate in the group meet weekly to share and discuss their individual experiences in a safe, respectful and supportive environment with other women. We invite women to join the conversation, whether their abortion was 40 years ago or yesterday.
The group is open and welcoming to women 18 and older, regardless of race, religion, marital-status, economic circumstances, and sexual orientation and provides support that is respectful of religious and political diversity.
Abortion is one of the most commonly performed gynecological procedures in the US - one in every three women will have an abortion in their lives. Women of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, education and income levels have abortions. Women have abortions for a number of different reasons, and while many of the reasons are similar, each experience is unique.
Emerge is an alternative to politically motivated counseling agencies. Pro-Choice Resources founded this group to empower and support each woman, regardless of her political, religious or philosophical perspective on abortion.
