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.

Religion is superstition and the sooner we get rid of all of it the better. Women can not have freedom in these patriarchal based beliefs, no matter how many female identifying rabbis and ministers we have.
