The Radical Roots of the Pro-Life Movement


February 16 Podcast

James R. Kelly analyzes the roots of the pro-life movement. Listen to this episode
James R. Kelly of Fordham University anaylzes the radical roots of the abortion movement, looking back at the days when peace activists like Tom Cornell and Gordon Zahn sought to link their anti-war activities with the fight against legalized abortion. With the advent of a new Democratic adminitration, Kelly argues now is the time for the pro-life movement to recover that consistent ethic of life. Read Prof. Kelly's article "Finding Renewal" from our Feb. 16 issue.
