Summary – What Will it Take For Women to Choose Life with Emily Berning
What would it look like for us to take seriously the reasons women give for getting abortions? Some of the loudest prolifers believe that considering reasons why women get abortions will somehow give credence to the pro-choice cause, and thus the legality of abortion. Some of the loudest prochoicers believe women aren’t exercising their agency if they aren’t choosing abortion.
There are numerous unintended consequences for this, not the least of which is the overwhelming sense that the abortion debate is entirely intractable. But what if we decided to listen? What if women seeking abortion were behaving rationally?
What if they don’t see abortion as an exercise of free choice, but of no other choice?What if political pundits and fringe extremists do not speak for women with unplanned pregnancies?
What if by listening we Let Them Live?
