Strong Women

Jun 21, 2023

We have been living in a post-Roe America for a year now, and it’s become more evident than ever that abortion has torn our nation apart—affecting babies and mothers, families, civil society, and every area of our common life. This week we’re joined by Alexandra DeSanctis, co-author of Tearing Us Apart: How Abortion Harms Everything and Solves Nothing. Alexandra gives us a year-in, post-Roe analysis of the pro-life movement. While abortion affects more than just one group of people, this week’s discussion focuses on how it has affected women—even those who have not had abortions themselves. We hope this conversation informs and equips you to have meaningful conversations about this difficult topic. As Chuck Colson would say, culture changes over the backyard fence, which is why it is so important to be knowledgeable on how abortion affects those closest to us—families, friends, and neighbors.
