Abortion: what have men got to do with it?
If you read about and research the problem of abortion long enough you may come to the conclusion: not much. Finding unbiased research on the impact of abortion on women is difficult enough, but research into abortion in the lives of men is nearly nonexistent.
Psychologist and researcher Catherine Coyle is working to change that. Through her clinical work, research, writing, and conferences she is asking the tough questions no one else has troubled to ask: what about men? How many men are impacted by abortion? How do their needs differ from the problems women face? And, how do men resolve their disenfranchisement–where is the reproductive justice for men who have no legal standing in the lives of their unborn children?
Join us this week. With caring and compassion, Dr. Coyle brings men to the table–yes, to hold them accountable–but to honor and respect their need for healing too.
