Where politics, religion and history collide - and it's not always polite!


Feb 4, 2018

WARNING: Mature Subject Matter

In Part I of a two-part series, Jaye begins to tackle what has arguably been the most controversial political issue in the United States for the past 50 years - abortion. She discusses her own views on the topic and how she arrived at her stance. Jaye also delves into the history of abortion rights in the United States up until the 1973 Roe v. Wade US Supreme Court decision.
