Exhale is an interesting, relatively new, group in San Francisco that provides a hotline in the Bay Area for people to call and talk about their feelings after abortion. As you can see if you read the press articles on their website, the founders are pro-choice, they hate Project Rachel because they think it must be judgmental, and the hotline is funded by politically pro-choice groups.

Exhale has created several training modules and it appears that they have an eye on a national market for their approach.

Their description of the components of a half-day training available only in the Bay Area includes this:

"Exhale “Feelings Cheat Sheet” that provides counselors/staff with easy to remember responses to a wide range of after-abortion feelings."

I smiled wryly to myself, thinking, "Only Ashli can do this justice.
