Pro-Life or Pro-Choice: The Psychology of Abortion

In this episode of the Shrink Tank podcast, our panel of shrinks discuss the psychology of abortion, the Alabama abortion bill, and government intervention.

The Psychology of Abortion

The recent Alabama abortion bill has introduced a debate: should the government dictate what is best with an individual’s health?

This Alabama abortion bill was signed into law on May 15, 2019, and it made nearly all abortions in the state illegal, with felony charges for physicians who perform the procedure.

In today’s podcast, our panel of Shrinks discuss public comments on abortion from figures in pop culture, masculinity, male support of female autonomy, religiosity versus spirituality, and the Equal Rights Amendment.

I find myself getting really angry when these states have a bunch of white men are passing laws about women.
