Abortion access as a religious right


Harrison Malkin/Illinois Newsroom

When the US Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade, the decision that allowed the right to abortion across America, some Christians said it was a victory for religious freedom. At the same time, many in the Jewish faith said stopping abortion rights takes away their religious freedom. 

Host Brian Mackey is joined by Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg and Arielle Swernoff who are both advocates for abortion rights within the Jewish community
