Choice and Agency

Choice and Agency

49 years ago (January 22, 1973), in its ruling in Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court gave people the right to access abortion legally all across the country. That right is now at risk. On this anniversary weekend, Rev. Paige Getty explores the religious commitment to protect and promote reproductive justice.
