A Clarion Call for the Pro-Life Movement’s Heavy Lift

Tearing Us Apart is just the book we need: it understands and works within our current rhetorical and political impulses.

The Texas Heartbeat Law and the Pro-Life Movement after Roe

Texas’s refusal to choose between the mother and her prenatal child, despite some important questions about the method used to achieve their goals, constitutes a blueprint for the pro-life movement. If Roe v. Wade is overturned, many more vulnerable women across the country will be without the access to abortion our throwaway culture has diabolically forced them to rely on. Pro-lifers must follow Texas’s lead and be at the ready to assist these women. We must make good on our claims that their legal and social equality does not require redistributing oppression to another vulnerable population.
