In “Revealing Texts: How Faith Communities Interpret Abortion” we'll hear Jewish, Christian, and Islamic scholars sharing their faith communities' texts. Ameena Jandali will share Islamic texts, Jim McGarry will share Catholic texts, and Deena Aranoff will share Hebrew and Rabbinic literature. We will learn how their traditions interpret these writings to create a world view on abortion.
