Should there be limits on abortion?
Peter Boghossian presented the claim “Abortion should be legal” to a man and woman in Austin, Texas. The participants discussed bodily autonomy and whether the trimester of pregnancy should have any impact on the law. They came to a mutually satisfactory definition of “abortion” when it became clear that they understood the concept differently.
The woman shared her personal decision to have an abortion and defended a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy “at any time for any reason.” She rejected the man’s suggestion of a conflict presented by the fetus’ right to life in advanced pregnancy. They also considered whether men can get pregnant.
