Abortion Presentation

Some slides from a presentation from long ago:

    Thank you for this Nathan, I am going to use some of these slides for an undergraduate Bioethics class. I particularly like the slides concerning "low quality" arguments about abortion. I was looking for something like this strategy when I came across your work.

    Generally it strikes me that in order to move past the impasse on abortion that we should seek to raise the level of discourse. In my experience, most abortion discussions have people parroting the same old tropes. Although these have an emotional foundation that the speaker wishes to convey, it would be more beneficial to move past gut instincts and allow for careful reflection. This is what I hope to instill in my students.
