Episode 10: Is Abortion Ever Okay?

Are there ever cases where abortion is morally allowed? Many people who dislike abortion may feel that there are “exceptions” which is why they may hesitate to fight for abortion being made illegal. In this second installment of the abortion conversation, Jacque and Megan discuss rare, difficult, or traumatic experiences where people may wonder if abortion should be allowed.
