Welcome, Emma!

This is my last time writing the Source of the Week newsletter! NPR's new Diverse Sources intern, Emma Hall, will be taking over the database and sending you sources. You can stay in touch with me on Twitter. It’s truly been a pleasure writing to you all each week. 
As you prepare for the Supreme Court’s abortion ruling, we bring you an expert on queer reproductive health and an academic who studies how religious identity shapes decisions to terminate a pregnancy.

Zahra Ayubi is an associate professor of religion at Dartmouth College who specializes in gender in Islamic ethics discourses. Her work analyzes ideas of masculinity, femininity and gender relations in Islam through a feminist lens.
Ayubi is part of a national team of researchers studying how religious identity shapes a person's decision to terminate a pregnancy, and how a religiously identified person understands the meaning and value of their reproductive decisions to end a pregnancy.
