One of us is“Pro-Choice,” the other is“Pro-Life.” We’re both Anti-Trump.

A collaboration between Jenn Abel and Susan Bordo

Jenn Abel is a teacher, writer, and mother of six who describes herself as learning to live by faith rather than fear. Susan Bordo is a writer, mother, and Professor Emerita in Humanities at the University of Kentucky. She is the author of many books on cultural history, the media, gender and politics.


One of us is “pro-choice” and Jewish. One of us is a “pro-life” Christian. We put these labels in scare quotes because we believe it’s time to get beyond labels and move forward on our common humanity
