Abortion and Reason

Jason recently wrote a piece on the problems in the pro-choice movement’s arguments for abortion. The boys discuss that piece and look for areas of common ground most Americans could approach to try to deal with at least some aspects of abortion policy. Jason also recommends Wondrously Wounded: Theology, Disability and the Body of Christ (Affiliate Link) as a good resource to explore issues around the sanctity of life and disability further.
