The Empowered Advocate

Jul 15, 2019

Josh Kappes from Love Life joins host Carter Mundy for a discussion about the role of men in the issue of abortion. Is abortion strictly a women’s issue? By removing men from the conversation, are we actually absolving them from taking any responsibility for their children and families? What is the appropriate biblical perspective, and how can men take practical steps to speak up on abortion while also empowering other men to do the same?
