The Abortion Debate

The Abortion Debate

Two celebrated scholars discuss one of the most provocative topics of the 21st Century:

  • The Legal History of Abortion in America
  • The Talmudic View on Abortion

Note: this is an educational program, focusing on Talmudic and US legal issues only; not on the often contentious political aspects of the topic.
