Twice a year, 40 Days for Life protests take place outside abortion clinics across the country. This year, the 40th anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision, I’ll spend time on the sidewalks with these pro-life activists, collecting their stories and learning more about their motivations and tactics. I’ll also speak with clinic employees, doctors, volunteers, and clergy about the history and future of abortion in America. If all goes well I’ll visit a couple of protest sites outside Washington.
As I’ve researched the topic I’ve already compiled 25 questions I’d like to answer — a number that will undoubtedly grow over the course of my investigation.
I’m excited and nervous about this project. And hopefully I’ll post updates as the 40 days progresses.
