Josh Brahm will be speaking on understanding and responding to the strongest pro-choice arguments at Belmont Abbey College on February 15th.
Many conversations surrounding abortion focus on the personhood of the unborn, but the strongest pro-choice arguments grant the entire pro-life case that the unborn is a full human being. They go on to claim that abortion should still be legal because women have a right to control their own bodies. Josh Brahm will explain how a comprehensive discussion about abortion needs to address more than just the humanity and personhood of the fetus, but also a woman’s right to her own bodily autonomy as it relates to pregnancy.
This lecture is designed to explain the philosophy of bodily rights arguments and explore responses to them. Individuals in the audience from all ends on the abortion debate can leave this talk with a deeper understanding of bodily rights arguments and will think differently about abortion if they have previously disregarded this crucial part of the abortion debate.
The lecture will be followed by an open Q&A session.
Speaker: Josh Brahm, President, Equal Rights Institute
