Late-term abortions, prison terms, and Roe v Wade: What's going on in the US?

in #politicslast year

Georgia and Ohio have restrictive abortion laws, HB-481 and others, known as heartbeat laws. Alabama is set to ban abortion outright. Meanwhile, Virginia has legalized late-term abortion all the way up to birth.

Roe vs. Wade is facing many challenges, and it's hard to make sense of what's going on. Will women face possible prison time for abortions? Are abortion rights at risk in the US? Will Roe v Wade be overturned, and was it even constitutional to begin with? And what are the philosophical arguments for and against abortion?

Join the Multiversity Project for an in-depth discussion which touches on the current abortion debate, first principle ethics versus consequentialism, republicanism versus parliamentary democracy, and what it means to be a person.
