How Artificial Wombs Could Change the Abortion Debate Forever
Philosophy Professor Speaks Out
In this episode of Brave New Us, I interview Dr. Christopher Kaczor, a professor of philosophy and the author of The Ethics of Abortion: Women’s Rights, Human Life, and the Question of Justice. We discuss some of the most challenging and controversial questions in the abortion debate, such as:
Can artificial wombs end the abortion debate?
Is your body really your choice when it comes to pregnancy and abortion?
How do we engage with feminists about abortion?
How do religion and natural law help us argue against abortion?
Listen to this episode to learn more about the ethics of abortion and the challenges and opportunities for finding common ground in this controversial issue!
