Heart-to-Heart Abortion Conversations is more than a campaign… It’s a card deck, toolkit, and a process YOU can shape. You are invited to reduce stigma and build power around the topic of abortion through powerful, compassionate conversations. When you participate, you will discover more about what values and thoughts shape your own opinions about abortion access while also listening deeply to the thoughts and feelings others.

Get started with Heart-to-Heart abortion conversations:

  1. Order your deck of conversation cards or Draw a Card from our randomized online deck, or from the Spanish Version
  2. Download the toolkits. Use the individual guide for one-on-one conversations and the small group guide to facilitate culture change in your community. Prepare for your conversations with all the knowledge, guidance, and support you’ll need!
  3. Use the placemat and menu to prepare. Reminiscent of the coloring pages you got in restaurants as a kid, these resources are a way for you to practice talking about abortion.
  4. Pick people that you want to grow in your relationship with. This could be someone who you think is with you, but you haven’t formally invited them to an abortion fund event in the past. Or it could be someone you never said the word “abortion” to before, and that’s a starting point to build on.
  5. Get your #Heart2Heart hashtags going. Promoting conversations on your own Facebook page, Instagram, Twitter will help peak the interest amongst your friends. Use a fun, shareable image (below) to help spread the word if you have pledged to have Heart-to-Heart Conversations.
  6. Then tell us about how it went! Share the story of your conversation with #Heart2Heart. Learn more about sharing and supporting others in our individual guide and small group guide.

Dialogue, storytelling, and intentional conversations are powerful tools to organize and strengthen our movement. Heart-to-Heart Abortion Conversations are designed to serve as a catalyst to grow your leadership, deepen connections, and make abortion access a reality. By tapping into love and empathy, speaking from our values, and seeking to understand and really hear others, we will be able to connect and build relationships, even when we don’t agree on everything about abortion.
