Roe & Religion with NOW NJ

The panelists will discuss ways in which moral decisions are made within each religion represented, and how the 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade is supported by religious tenets and not in opposition to them. This year’s Hobby Lobby case and the topic of freedom of religion will be discussed in an effort to seek new ways of understanding and speaking out for reproductive justice and personal decision-making in the context of faith. Attendees will view a short video and have an opportunity for Q&A with panelists.
