Pushing Limits

“What if They Were Never Born?” (Rerun)

Due to a technical error, this program was a rerun of our 8-17-12 program.

Influential personalities like bioethecist Peter Singer have called for the aborting of disabled fetuses and have gone farther in saying it is o.k. to kill infants with serious disabilities like spinal bifida. We want to pursue this topic again but not in the usual way. We think it is fair and also necessary for us “to turn the table” and come to this topic from the other direction. This is a call in program so we want our listeners with disabilities to pick a living and known person whose mothers should have been more enthusiastic practitioners of birth control, including abortion. Hosted by Eddie Ytuarte, Shelley Berman, and Jacob Lesner-Buxton. The program originally aired Friday, August 17.
