Abortion: what’s right and whose rights?

Session date: Monday 4th August 2014 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: The Pavilion Session track

In this seminar Dr Peter Saunders, the Chief Executive of the Christian Medical Fellowship, will be interviewed about the ongoing debate surrounding abortion in Northern Ireland. Over the course of 2013 and 2014, there have been calls for the legislation in Northern Ireland on abortion to be changed particularly in the area of fatal foetal abnormality. In this session, hosted by the Christian social policy charity CARE in Northern Ireland, we will ask Dr Saunders about his views on the ethics of abortion and why he believes that the law in this area should not be changed. There will be time for questions at the end of the session.
