The Political Tragedy of the Pro-Life Movement: How a Liberal Cause Became a Conservative Partisan Campaign

Fifty years ago, some of the most prominent supporters of the pro-life movement were liberal Democrats who viewed the campaign against abortion as part of a larger quest to defend human life and protect the marginalized. But today the pro-life movement has linked its fortunes to the Republican Party - and the result has not been what the creators of the pro-life movement hoped. Join us for an exploration of the forgotten political history of the pro-life movement and the lessons this history might hold for its future possibilities.
