Have you heard of or read about the leaked Roe v. Wade opinion of the United States Supreme Court? That is what this episode is all about. It is a sensitive topic and I will not pass judgment on it. Instead, I will speak from the heart about my position regarding abortion as well as my response to the leaked Supreme Court’s opinion. I will also share resources that have been helpful in my understanding of abortion, and some concerns raised by those who hold pro-life positions.
So, if you are ready and open to having a conversation, engaging with ideas, and getting a better understanding of where others stand on this topic, let’s dig in!
