5:00 – Recall Abortion: Ending the Abortion Industry's Exploitation of Women
Abortion Harms Women. Bad products are recalled every day: the Ford Pinto, faulty tires, dangerous prescription pills, contaminated lettuce. If a product is found to pose even a modest risk to those who use it, you can bet it will soon be pulled from the market…Unless that product is abortion.

The Gospel-centered Evangelical Catholicism of the future will send all the people of the Church into mission territory every day. George Weigel is here to explain.
