1How the ‘Whole Life’ movement in the USA challenges the politics of Left vs. Right

In her weekly newsletter for The New York Times, Tish Harrison Warren, an Anglican priest in the USA, talks about the ‘whole life’ movement. Warren explains she was interested in this group as it is committed to protecting the life and dignity of all people, particularly those who are vulnerable, “from womb to tomb,” regardless of which issues are supported by which political faction. This means the movement is opposed to abortion, euthansia and the death penalty and also promotes policies such as having a living wage, universal access to health care and racial justice, transcending the usual Democratic versus Republican divide in the USA. “A whole life movement that doesn’t track with our right/left political binary is right where it should be because this binary is a terrible, limiting, toxic thing. This movement is about something bubbling up from outside of those national political assumptions and power structures,” Charlie Camosy, a Catholic and leader within the movement, told Warren.
