So – we’ve decided to engage the Ed Uni Life Society! We’re hosting a short showcase debate followed by an open forum discussion a la the BBCs Question Time in Appleton Tower Lt5 on Crichton Street between 19.15 and 21.00 on Thurs 1st March.
Pro-choice? Pro-life? Undecided?
Across the world, abortion remains a cultural, religious, moral – and sometimes legal – morass. Even within the UK, and especially between Britain and Northern Ireland, the framework and rhetoric of the debate changes frequently.
Professor Dr Wendy Savage: obstetrician, gynaecologist and former press officer for Doctors for a Woman’s Choice on Abortion
Breedagh Hughes: Northern Ireland Board Secretary, Royal College of Midwives
Professor Dr Calum MacKellar: Visiting Professor of Bioethics at St. Mary’s University College, Twickenham
Elaine Gallcher: Education Officer, Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative
