Description

This is not your typical argument about abortion. Ross Douthat and Michelle Goldberg debate women's reproductive health this week and while it's no surprise that they disagree, they manage to hear each other out. Then Medicare Rights Center founder Diane Archer joins David Leonhardt and Ross to argue whether the Democrats' new favorite slogan — “Medicare for All” — could actually work in the U.S. And Ross has de Gaulle to recommend a doorstop of a biography.

Ross, Ross. such a pathetic Religious excuse. "if you flip on abortion rights you werent really fully pro life" or if you leave your faith you weren't really fully committed to the "cause". what a lame arguement

Eric Anderson Jason, Jason. what's the word of the day? Context! you are right the argument makes logical sense but what I am getting at is the argument is a straw man fallacy. people do change their minds or opinions when presented with facts and/or personal eye opening encounters. It is Biblical to be presented with facts, peoples's personal testimony and/or scientific proof and still believe antiquated and often harmful assumptions, I agree with you there

Eric Anderson That makes sense to me. If you're pro-life, you should be pro-life at conception. If you're a ture Christian, then you will persevere till the end. The first is common sense consistency and the second is biblical.

I didn't agree with all that was said by Ross, but the best statement was the last he made. "The answer is to care and not to kill."

absolutely astounding. a conversation about abortion that didn't end up in tears or screaming or both. thank you for modelling civil debate. it is a vanishing format among us.
