Clarke Forsythe on the Supreme Court and Roe v. Wade

The current Supreme Court vacancy and the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh are fueling the conversation about the future of abortion in the United States. We speak with Clarke Forsythe, Senior Counsel for Americans United for Life, to address whether we are likely to see Roe overturned, what a post-Roe society and pro-life movement would look like, and what we as Catholics are called to do amid these possible changes.

In our Classic Catholic Social Teaching segment, we delve into the USCCB's "Living the Gospel of Life", on its 20th Anniversary, and its call to faithful citizenship and the protection of life from womb to tomb. This episode's Bridge Builder segment focuses on the primaries and forming your conscience and your vote. We wrap up the podcast with the ancient Gregorian chant, Laudate Dominum, sung by the National Catholic Youth Choir performed at Saint John's University.
