BP This Week: The Ministerial for Religious Freedom

Plus: Frozen Embryos and Humanae Vitae

John Stonestreet and guest co-host Warren Cole Smith discuss the State Department’s first-ever Ministerial for Religious Freedom, which produced not only a declaration, but an action plan for defending freedom of religion and persecuted religious minorities.

They also talk about the unforeseen consequences of advance reproductive technologies–such as the creation of over a million frozen embryos, as well as the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae, the prophetic Papal encyclical that declared the Catholic Church’s opposition to artificial contraception.
