Living Room Conversations: Abortion
Join our Living Room Conversations on abortion, where we will gather to practice communicating across differences while building understanding and relationships. Rather than debating or convincing others, we take turns talking to share, learn, and be curious.

Oxford, 16 S Campus Ave, Oxford, OH 45056, USA
About the event
Abortion is seldom a topic that we speak about in casual conversation. More often we hear abortion talked about by news media, politicians or, more rarely, depicted in books, television shows or movies. In pretty much any situation, abortion elicits an intense emotional response. In the U.S. the conversation on abortion generally centers on whether you are “for” or “against” it and very rarely explores personal narratives, what we believe about abortion as a decision, what the procedure entails, or how abortion affects an individual’s reproductive and mental health. Engaging in an honest and vulnerable conversation on abortion provides an opportunity to explore the depths of our beliefs about sex, life, death, agency and parenting. It gets at the very root of what we care deeply for in life and opens the door to finding potential common ground.
