Wade. Topics included, among others, comparative religious perspectives about abortion in Islam, Judaism, and Christianity; justification frameworks that shape views and discussions about abortion in the US; reproductive justice in progressive Christianity; and religio-political contexts and implications of the US Supreme Court decision.
