"I'm so glad this book exists. Rarely do we get to see a woman wrestling so honestly and openly with the complicated nature of what it means to have a choice." 

SARAH HEPOLA, New York Times bestselling author of Blackout

"A profoundly compelling and necessary book. While reading May Cause Love, I found myself continually shocked that such a book has not already been written, that this experience shared by so many women in this country is not already available in myriad variations in every bookstore in America. But thank God a writer of such talent has finally told it; I can't imagine a more honest and thoughtful treatment of this subject." 

MELISSA FEBOS, author of Whip Smart and Abandon Me

"An instant classic for a new generation of feminists. With wisdom, compassion, and clarity, May Cause Love is a blazing arc of hope that points us to deeper questions about abortion and God—and more than a few radiant answers." 

LEAH VINCENT, author of Cut Me Loose

"Hip, hilarious, and poignant—as well as politically astute." 

SUSAN SHAPIRO, New York Times bestselling author of Unhooked and Five Men Who Broke My Heart
