Rev. Dr. Caroline Knowles (she/her)
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles looks at the Supreme Court’s undoing of Roe v. Wade. That decision in 1973 had changed the lives of all Americans, but most critically, had given the freedom to women to control their bodies, their health, and their choice of how to spend their lives. The overturning of Roe v. Wade suggests future attacks on other human rights our nation has taken for granted.
