Publication Date



Boston “prochoice” and “prolife” leaders will discuss a secret dialogue that began after local clinic shootings in 1994 and was made public through a jointly authored article in the Boston Globe over five years later. What made their difficult conversations constructive? How did their exchanges affect their lives, their leadership, and the abortion conflict in Boston? Laura Chasin, a co-facilitator of their dialogue and founder of the Public Conversations Project, the organization that convened their dialogue, will facilitate their conversation with each other and with us.
