As a regular private citizen, it takes strength and courage to change your views on a polarizing issue.

Now imagine you’d spent decades in visible, vocal action for one side of the debate ... only to realize your beliefs had changed.

Evangelical minister Rob Schenck did just that. After more than twenty years of opposing abortion rights, including physically blocking clinics, he came to disavow what he’d spent so long fighting for.  

Schenck has written a memoir about his experiences, titled Costly Grace, and he went on Fresh Air to discuss both the book and the state of evangelical Christians and politics today.
