Abortion: a panel Q&A with the Edinburgh University Life Society

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.

Our Panellists:

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

(their panellists):

Professor Dr Calum MacKellar: Visiting Professor of Bioethics at St. Mary’s University College, Twickenham

Elaine Gallcher: Education Officer, Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative

If you would like to submit a question in advance of the event please fill out the form on http://www.edinburghprolifesociety.com/. Otherwise – come along and make use of the roving mics!

£2 tickets are available in advance here: http://edinburghuniversityfeministsociety.bigcartel.com/
