Abortion Debate


The US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade led to a swell of protests and debate among Americans as to when an embryo is considered a living human, and whose rights come first – those of the mother or the unborn child. The debate has even veered into the issue of who qualifies as a woman. Since the ruling and resulting state-level bans, companies have been offering to pay for their employees to travel to other states to get abortions. Is that because it’s cheaper than offering decent maternity/paternity leave? Will birth control become limited? We take a look at which countries have the most restrictive laws when it comes to abortions and contraception. Scottie Nell Hughes is joined by attorney Rory Riley-Topping and Tiana Khalid, a Muslim political activist, on our first episode of 360 View.
