The concluding chapter reflects on the research evidence, scholarly analysis, case studies, and reflections on praxis, presented by academics, theologians and practitioners in the edited volume. Applying the theoretical lenses of reproductive justice and lived religion, the editors propose three thematic areas that will be useful for the development of further scholarship and praxis. These are critical engagement with theology and doctrine; mapping faith values and challenges; and modelling effective interventions. The chapter expresses hope that the work contained within this volume will have a depolarising effect on abortion discourse and serve to mitigate the impact of abortion stigma, particularly on those within faith communities.
