Steve Aden on overturning Roe v. Wade

This is part three in the series: What’s happening with the abortion debates in America?

Jeff, Travis, and Steven are joined by Steve Aden of Americans United for Life to discuss the legal strategies for protecting life and the possible path to overturn Roe v. Wade. The momentum continues for the pro-life movement as state governments in Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Missouri enacted new laws prohibiting abortion. All this attention then catalyzed nationwide conversations about life, women, and the unborn.
