May Cause Love by Kassi Underwood
Call Number: HQ767 .U53 2017
Publication Date: 2017-02-14
In this powerful memoir, a fiercely honest and surprisingly funny testament to healing after abortion, a young woman travels across the United States to meet a motley crew of spiritual teachers and a caravan of new friends. Inspired by rebellious women in history who used spiritual practices to attain emotional freedom, Kassi embarked on a journey of recovery after abortion-a road trip with pit stops at a Buddhist "water baby" ritual, where she learns a new way to think about lost pregnancies; a Roman Catholic retreat for abortion that turns out to be staffed with clinic picketers; a crash course in grief from a Planned Parenthood counselor; a night in a motel with a "Midwife for the Soul" who teaches her how to take up space; and a Jewish "wild woman" celebration led by a wise and zany rabbi. Dazzling with warmth and leavened by humor, May Cause Love captures one woman's journey of self-discovery that enraged her, changed her, and ultimately enlightened her.
