How the Anti-Abortion Movement Gained Tremendous Political Power
By the 1990s, white Evangelicals and Catholics finally found ways to successfully push their agenda.
In this member-exclusive episode, Slow Burn’s host Susan Matthews and associate producer Sophie Summergrad discuss researching the pro-life movement for Episode 2. Then, Matthews interviews Jennifer L. Holland, an assistant professor of U.S. history at the University of Oklahoma, about what happened with the anti-abortion movement since Roe v. Wade was decided, and how it became so intense and, at times, violent.
