SUMMARY: There are few words more loaded than abortion and for many Christians it is the one issue that sways their vote. Skye Jethani argues that overturning Roe v. Wade wouldn’t change the abortion rate, but improving access to healthcare and changing our local and state policies on abortion would be more effective.

KEY QUOTE: “If we really care about solving this problem then we need to stop being manipulated by parties and candidates and get our focus off of the presidential election. Instead, we should focus on on what’s happening right in front of us – in our states, in our communities, and in our neighborhoods.”

BONUS: A transcript of the video with citations and Jethani responds to some of the critiques of the video.

BONUS II: Continue your learning by listening to the Vox Podcast, episode 268 – What does it really mean to vote pro-life? with Mike Erre where Erre and Jethani talk about abortion.
