Media Coverage of “How Americans Understand Abortion”

My report on American’ Abortion Attitudes – a study and publication of the University of Notre Dame’s McGrath Institute for Church Life – has received wide attention in media sources. I am thankful for reporters who have engaged with its contents, implications, and correctives regarding what we think we already “know” about abortion attitudes…but haven’t really asked (or listened).

The following is a non-exhaustive list of some of the news stories, radio shows, and podcasts that feature our study. Posting does not signal endorsement. My hope from the earliest stages of this study has been to foster more productive conversations predicated on sound sociological data.
