#TRUSTWOMEN: Changing the Conversation About Abortion
September 15, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
In an age in which women’s reproductive rights are increasingly under attack, Rebecca Todd Peters, a minister and ethicist offers a stirring argument that abortion can be a moral good in her book, “Trust Women: A Progressive Christian Argument For Reproductive Justice”.
Rebecca Todd Peters, a Presbyterian minister and social ethicist, argues that this shaming and judging reflects deep, often unspoken patriarchal and racist assumptions about women and women’s sexual activity. These assumptions are at the heart of what she calls the justification framework, which governs our public debate about abortion, and disrupts our ability to have authentic public discussions about the health and well-being of women and their families.
Planned events include a lecture, panel discussion and signed books for purchase. Registration is required. Location will be shared upon successful registration.“Trust Women offers the moral conversation for which we have been waiting…a deeply nuanced and unflinchingly personal lens about abortion, motherhood, and justice.” – Rev. Dr. Traci C. West
