As the political and legislative debate around abortion heats up, it can be all too easy to forget the humanity of those on the other side, and to demonize or belittle the human beings on the various sides of the pro-life and pro-abortion spectrum.

Our Catholic faith calls us to fight against the evils of abortion, but it also reminds us to act in love and charity when engaging in advocacy.

In this episode, Bishop Wall recommends some productive habits for Catholics, Christians and non-religious pro-life advocates alike as the national debate around abortion takes the spotlight.

“Am I trying to bully the other person to win the day?…Or am I really truly seeking the good of the other person, created in the image and likeness of God, just as I am?”
