How to Talk About Abortion and Faith
Date & Time: Thursday, October 14 @ 2:30 - 4 PM PT (5:30 – 7 PM ET)
Location: Virtual event - join from anywhere
After the Rally For Abortion Justice on October 2, Women's March and Auburn Seminary are partnering to host a conversation about faith and abortion. This evening will be a conversation with diverse spiritual leaders across multiple faith traditions and cultural groundings.
We will be exploring two fundamental questions for our time:
--How do we tell a different story about abortion and faith?
--How do we talk to other people of faith about abortion?
We'll discuss the conversations about faith and abortion we know we need to have with our family and friends; the challenges such conversations bring up for us; and the successes as well as setbacks we’ve experienced when we’ve had such conversations.
