About the Series Each October the Church in the United States celebrates Respect Life Month. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. During the month of October, the Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life. For this reason, the Archdiocese of San Francisco's Office of Human Life and Dignity, wants to help bring awareness to an important study and its findings during this month. We want to highlight the Study: "How Americans Understand Abortion: A Comprehensive Interview Study of Abortion Attitudes in the U.S." and address the findings from this study. To download this report, download it on this link here The McGrath Institute for Church Life at Notre Dame partnered with sociologist Tricia Bruce to produce this in-depth report. The study is a must-read for anyone committed to understanding not only what Americans believe about abortion, but also how they think about it. For this reason, we partnered with the Notre Dame Office of Life and Human Dignity within the McGrath Institute to bring you a three-part series with speakers that address the educational gaps found in those interviewed. This is an opportunity to bring light to those gaps.
