    One thought on “Sacred Work: Planned Parenthood and Its Clergy Alliances”

    1. A great book detailing the mostly unknown history of clergy involvement in Planned Parenthood since its inception. Highly recommended for all, even conservative Christians who have it all figured out

    2. A christian minister, Davis writes a history of Planned Parenthood that is three fourths historical and one fourths emotional apologetics for feminism. Make no mistake Davis is pro-choice though he spends no time explaining how he arrives at that position from a Christian perspective, which would have been interesting to know. He does go on at length about social justice being the true sacred work of ministers and offering advice to others on how such work might be done on the side by enterprisi [...]

    3. Tom Davis, retired chaplain and religion professor at Skidmore College, has produced a stirring history of clergy who have collaborated -- as a matter of faithfulness to the biblical tradition -- with Planned Parenthood in its advocacy of women's right to exercise control over their own fertility and reproductive systems. This is a must-read for men and women concerned with the dignity and ethical autonomy of women.
