This chapter provides a critical overview of the terrain of contemporary issues on abortion and faith globally. The chapters construct a schema of international perspectives to set the context for the chapters that follow, providing an introduction to the synthesising of wide-ranging research from the contributing authors. The Introduction explains that treatment of the religious material in the book is that of lived religion, applied in social science literature to analyse the complex and nuanced abortion experiences and views of religious people that do not reflect the official religious position. The discussion of abortion policy, access and discourse is approached through the theoretical lens of reproductive justice, a framework for scholarship and practice developed by Black women in the US (Ross, 2017).
