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

Jeff and Chelsea are joined by Trillia Newbell and Dan Darling to discuss what it means to bring a holistic pro-life ethic to bear on this current cultural moment. 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.
