"A critical, essential offering to the national conversation about abortion that invites us to listen to those most impacted: the people who have made these decisions themselves. A Complicated Choice is a truly important offering for the United States today." --Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, author of Surprised by God and Nurture the Wow; Scholar in Residence, National Council of Jewish Women

"Katey Zeh creates conditions for choice and agency to guide the path for healing and community for those who walk the path of abortion." --Robyn Henderson-Espinoza, PhD, author of Body Becoming and Activist Theology

"Katey Zeh takes on concepts of stigma and privilege without demur. She brings a powerful perspective as a woman of faith, and relies on that faith to open a fulsome and compassionate dialogue with people about their individual experiences with abortion in a series of interviews." --Herminia Palacio, president and CEO of the Guttmacher Institute

"Sharing personal stories, coupled with a fresh perspective on some well-known gospel verses, Katey Zeh brings so much compassion and nuance to the conversation about abortion." --Asha Dahya, author of Today's Wonder Women: Everyday Superheroes Who Are Changing the World

"In spaces where there is so much yelling and screaming about abortion, Rev. Zeh has taken the time to slow the pace, to listen and share, to shape a healing process that doesn't include blame or shame." --Pastor Kaji Dousa, senior pastor, Park Avenue Christian Church

"Refreshingly relatable. Zeh gifts her audience with concrete ways to wrestle with faith and abortion, making this book a significant resource for religious and medical communities as well as public policy influencers." --Monique Moultrie, associate professor of religious studies and director of undergraduate studies, Georgia State University
