In Episode One of “The Courage to Identify” Podcast, I speak with Pastor Kevin Wilson (aka Chaplain of Chai) about the recent overturn of Roe v Wade while making a delicious cup of chai ☕
On what would have been Roe v. Wade’s golden anniversary, the United States has entered a new era in which abortion is no longer a constitutional right. On June 2022, the Supreme Court ruling overturned a 50 year legislation to state that abortion is illegal. Today, almost 19 states (as of April 26, 2023) restrict near total access to abortion.
Every choice has a consequence and though reproductive rights were used to correct people’s mistakes, the overturn of Roe v. Wade left women to suffer on the doctor’s table without proper protocols in place. Research shows that women of color were the most affected as they lost the right to an abortion on basis of rape and incest.
The stance toward pro-life or pro-choice is based on religion and personal values but is it worth celebrating political identity when such a choice hurts the minority group of a society?
