Conversations on the human right to life, brought to you by Americans United for Life and hosted by Tom Shakely and Noah Brandt.
Jack Gorby on the early days of Americans United for Life, Roe v. Wade and strategies to advance human rights, and the future
Before Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court did not function as if it were America's National Abortion Control Board. Instead, the issue of abortion was left America's voters and their elected representatives across the states. As Roe was being handed down and the violence of abortion was being imposed across America, human rights advocates came together in the 1960s and '70s to fight the scourge of nationalized abortion. Jack Gorby, a co-founder of Americans United for Life, was one of those human rights advocates who was there at the beginning of America's most contentious culture war issue. In addition to his role with Americans United for Life, Jack is an accomplished attorney and professor emeritus at John Marshall Law school. Jack joins Tom Shakely and Noah Brandt to reflect on his role in the fight against abortion from Roe through to the present.

Abby Johnson on Planned Parenthood, the reality of America's abortion businesses, and a culture of hope
While many have heard about the horrors that occur behind the doors at Planned Parenthood businesses across the country, far fewer have experienced those horrors as a way of life. Indeed, while many have the first-hand experience of the tragedy of abortion from either the patient or the abortion business side of the table, Abby Johnson understands the tragedy from both sides—as both patient and perpetrator.
Abby worked for eight years at Planned Parenthood before abandoning her work at America’s largest abortion business after recognizing the reality of the existence of the human person in prior to birth. Abby now leads And Then There Were None, which helps workers in the abortion industry get out. Abby is also the author of the best selling book “Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader's Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line” which was recently adapted into a feature film. Abby joins Tom Shakely and Noah Brandt to share her story and her leadership on advocating for the rights of the youngest Americans.

Benjamin Watson on 'Divided Hearts of America' and the work of building a culture of life
In "Divided Hearts of America," Benjamin Watson laces up for a new cause: bringing empathy and understanding to all sides of the abortion debate. A million-dollar budget isn’t much for Hollywood, but Benjamin Watson is hoping that it’s enough to tell a story and bring empathy to a hot-button topic. Venturing onto a new field, the New England Patriot’s tight end has executive-produced and partially self-financed Divided Hearts of America, a look at the debate around abortion in America.
Ben Watson joins Tom Shakely and Noah Brandt on Life, Liberty, and Law to speak about "Divided Hearts of America" and how to build a culture of life in a nation deeply divided over the issue of abortion.
