The Big One: Part 2. Roe v. Wade is Overturned and We Could All Use a Civics Lesson.
This episode continues our deep dive into the overturning of Roe v. Wade. We discuss Keep Sweet: Pray and Obey from Netflix, Dan assures us that we can stay calm; we’re not at Handmaids Tale level in this country…and we’re still pretty rational up in here. Eyes on the ball- the issue is bodily autonomy, not the question of when life begins. Where does religion and the belief that God is the ultimate authority intersect with those who believe they are their own authority? Two people make a baby. Kris has a cousin who is a cloistered nun. Dan has a family member who is happily a housewife, hard-core Catholic, and Pro-Choice. Dan encourages us to consider all ideas including the ideas we disagree with. Andy asks: Are we sure life is actually sacred? Do justices have agendas? What are laws really for? We all need a civics lesson.
