In overturning Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court thrust abortion into the headlines, reigniting with new intensity one of the most painful battles of the culture wars in this country. Abortion is a complex legal question, a divisive social issue, and—for many Americans—a deeply religious matter. Too often, religious concerns are written off or warped to serve political agendas. Too often, we fail to recognize the profound convictions that motivate religious people on all sides of this issue. Join us as scholars of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam discuss the different ways in which their traditions understand abortion, and how their beliefs are lived out in a pluralistic, religiously diverse democracy.

Sponsored by The Breen Chair in Catholic Theology, The Mandel Chair in Jewish Studies, The Nursi Chair in Islamic Studies, and The Tuohy Chair in Interreligious Studies.
