The causes and effects of abortion are steeped in various forms of trauma. As ministers of the Gospel it is incumbent upon us to adopt a posture of humility and accompaniment when we encounter an individual who is impacted by this reality. Join this town hall with Dr. Martha Shuping, MD, to learn about the topic of abortion as it relates to incarceration, addresses grief that men and women may experience post-abortion, and offers other vital approaches to being ministers of healing and restoration.
