To Offer Compassion: Book Discussion with Author Patricia A. Relf

Mon., Aug. 14, 6-8 p.m.
phone 216-991-4000
info@preterm.org

As we continue the fight for reproductive freedom, it’s essential to look back at the history of our movement and acknowledge those who paved the way. Join us at Preterm for a discussion with Patricia A. Relf, co-author of To Offer Compassion: A History of the Clergy Consultation Service on Abortion. Conservative, anti-choice values often dominate the conversation on religion and abortion, but Relf’s book delves into the largely forgotten history of clergy members helping women access abortion care. To Offer Compassion: A History of the Clergy Consultation Service on Abortion will be available for purchase from Loganberry Books. Free
