S1.Ep.6 (Re-release): Evangelical Cultures of Life and Angel Babies

In an episode from fall of 2018, Brad and Dan discuss the issue of abortion in Evangelical culture and how it became a litmus test for who is a “real Christian.” Brad then interviews Dr. Myev Rees, an expert on reproductive rights and abortion in Evangelicalism. She discusses the concept of an “angel baby” and what it means for how Evangelicals understands life, conception, and embodiment.
