This week on The Bulletin, hosts Mike Cosper and Russell Moore tackle tough topics that divide many faithful Christians—immigration, politics, and reproductive rights. Bri Stensrud of Women of Welcome joins the show to talk about immigration, security, and the current situation at the southern border. Then, Mike and Russell review Super Tuesday’s results with an eye for hope amid political despair. Finally, Jeffrey Keenan of the National Embryo Donation Center joins the conversation to talk about Alabama’s recent ruling related to in vitro fertilization—what IVF looks like today, where Christians disagree, and how belief in the dignity of human life can anchor us as we make difficult decisions in the courts and in our families.

This week’s guests:

Bri Stensrud is an author, human dignity advocate, and the director of Women of Welcome. Her passion is to equip the church to engage more consistently and tangibly in holistic human dignity issues. Throughout her previous work in the pro-life movement, Bri continually faced questions from those concerned about immigrants and refugees. Understanding that many concerns were rooted in fear and misinformation, she started a journey to detangle from politically partisan narratives and seek out a biblical perspective to uplift and advocate for immigrants and refugees. Bri holds a master’s of biblical and theological studies from Dallas Theological Seminary and has authored two books: Start with Welcome: The Journey toward a Confident and Compassionate Immigration Conversation and the children’s book The Biggest Best Light: Shining God’s Light into the World Around You.

Jeffrey Keenan, a highly respected infertility and reproductive medicine specialist, leads the National Embryo Donation Center team. He is the center’s president and medical director and a fertility specialist with Rejoice Fertility in Knoxville, Tennessee. He is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology as well as reproductive endocrinology and infertility. In practice since 1990, Dr. Keenan has performed innumerable fertility procedures with outstanding success rates.
