Abortion & the overturning of Roe
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Most people have a strongly held conviction on abortion. It tends to be on one side of the issue or the other: pro-choice or anti-abortion (or pick your phrasing). The reality of this world is that there is much more to it than two sides. Join us as we dive into the messy middle. It’s hard. We don’t have the answers. Except that we think polarizing each other isn’t it. 

Sending hope for open hearts and minds, as you listen.

The decision issued by SCOTUS to overturn Roe v. Wade has reverberating effect. We find ourselves discussing the complexity around abortion: the legal, ethical, and religious motivations. Plus how the decision primarily impacts the poor and marginalised.  We also speculate about the impact of a decision that overreached the question actually posed to the court .... and whether it compromised the separation of church and state.  At the end of the episode, we share our wishes for what's next.
