Abortion is a critical issue that’s currently being fiercely debated in judicial courts, news headlines, and outside of clinics across our country. In order to understand deeper this divisive topic, we sat down with Dr. Linda Ellison, a woman responsible for the world’s largest abortion study. Her study has an unusual narrative, however. It documents 729 conservative Christian women who protested abortion, subsequently had an abortion, and then went back to protesting abortion. As someone who understood the implications of leaving a religious community herself, Dr. Linda joined Planned Parenthood and began to counsel women with religious woes before they had an abortion. She used this powerful journey for inspiration for her dissertation and got a Masters at Harvard Divinity School, since implementing her findings at colleges across the country. For us, this episode is compulsive listening for anyone that wants to try and better understand both sides of this fragmented issue. Listen up here!
