There isn’t a title that does descriptive justice to this episode of The Right Heart. Guest Sarah Denny knocked this one out of the park.
We cover the history of feminism, the struggles and inequalities faced by women through the ages, authentic femininity and masculinity, modesty, the bioethics of reproductive technologies, and how there isn’t one specific formula of right choices that go into being a wonderful mother.
Sarah is an incredibly gifted speaker who can put into everyday words deep truths about the human condition and what it means to direct our actions and our choices toward the dignity of each human person. Sarah has spoken frequently over the past few years at colleges, high schools and parishes on the Theology of the Body, authentic feminism, fertility awareness and the Creighton Model of fertility care, and the bioethics of reproductive technologies. She has a masters in Theology from Notre Dame Seminary in New Orleans, Louisiana, and she will be pursuing her doctorate in bioethics at the Regina Apostolorum in Rome starting in the Fall of 2015. She is also a FertilityCare Practitioner with the Creighton Model System, and she co-hosts a radio show called “Alive Again” with Fr. Brad Doyle.
I have already booked Sarah to record another episode with me, specifically on the bioethics of reproductive technologies and Catholic teachings on acceptable medical and surgical aids in achieving pregnancy. Look for that episode to come out sometime in early Fall 2015.
