At the Intersection of Faith and Reproductive Justice

At the Intersection of Faith and Reproductive Justice

Faith and reproductive justice: we rarely hear these words in the same sentence. Instead, we associate faith with the belligerent protester outside an abortion clinic or sex ed curriculums that shame young women for their sexuality. But what if faith could fuel a movement that supports women and families in having real choices over their lives and their bodies? On this week’s Making Contact, we head to the crossroads of faith and the struggle for reproductive justice. We’ll hear from people like Dr. Willie Parker, Toni Bond Leonard, and Katie Zeh, who are making these visions a reality. Special thanks to Center for American Progress for allowing us to broadcast excerpts of the “At the Intersection of Faith and Reproductive Justice”, a panel that took place in Washington D.C.
