Welcome to Choice Words Action! Our goal is to strengthen community, especially among women and others who can have abortions, while using great literature to change the conversation on behalf of reproductive freedom. Acclaimed poet Annie Finch took twenty years to edit Choice Words: Writers on Abortion, the first major anthology of poems, stories, and literary essays about abortion, which spans six continents and includes Lisa Alvarado, Margaret Atwood, Langston Hughes, Ursula K. LeGuin, Audre Lorde, Amy Tan, Lindy West, Mary Wollstonecraft, and many more. Please browse the site, check out events in your area and suggestions for new events, and learn how you can connect with friends and neighbors and fight for reproductive justice through this landmark book.

We hope you will join the Choice Words Action movement to build feminist community and create a culture of “abortion without apology.” From a toolkit with event ideas to a step-by-step plan for planning and organizing your event, a link to purchase the book, discussion guide, and a shop for t-shirts and swag to make your event more fun, this site provides everything you need to join the Choice Words Action movement! And that’s just the beginning. Please share your own ideas for events and how they turned out on our social media pages to inspire others and build further community--we’d love to hear from you!
"The poems, essays, and stories in Choice Words prove that women’s bodies cannot be nationalized.” — Gloria Steinem
