Essay topic, At Boston College, we hope to draw on the Jesuit tradition of finding conversation partners to discuss issues and problems facing society. Who is your favorite conversation partner? What do you discuss with that person?

So, were looking to write a paper about my conversations with Mom about current political events, i.e., Ukrainian War, rising cost of goods due to inflation metrics, criminal violence in our big cities, the educational gaps in the cities and more specifically minorities, but most important my personal and religious beliefs when it comes to Abortion. Raised Catholic and believe in many doctrines of the church but currently conflicted with my churches teachings and how I might feel personally about abortion. I personally believe in abstinence, right now, but believe a women should have access to abortion if they need it. I understand the courts decision thats its not and never has been a constitutional protected right and the SC shouldnt have heard it originally but now with some of the states banning it altogether in their states I might not agree with that policy but understand thats a legislative right thru the elected officials voted in. I also believe that its a service and if some want to provide it so be it as long as its performed with the best medical practices. I also dont think Govt funds should be forwarded to abortion providers. I also dont like the use of reproductive rights language when discussing it either. Its an oxymoron. Tough subject but I want to go to BC.
