Weekly Roundup: Embryos are People Now?

Brad and Dan begin by discussing the shocking decision from the Alabama Supreme Court proclaiming embryos to be human beings. They dissect the legal, philosophical, theological, and political dynamics of the ruling – and breakdown the Christian nationalism baked into the opinion written by Chief Justice Tom Parker.

They then turn their attention to Oklahoma, where a non-binary teen died days after being attacked by a group of classmates in a school bathroom.

Finally, they look to Tennessee where a new bill proposes to let any civil servant refuse to solemnize a marriage they feel violates their religious beliefs – including same-sex marriages and, perhaps, interracial ones.
