How to Have an Argument (Podcast 006)

Document Type


Publication Date



Our March Podcast is an “argument” about abortion with Aaron Costerisan, our Center for Bioethics Fellow. We conduct this argument in two ways. First we break all the rules of respectful debate (see if you can spot our errors). Then we analyze our mistakes and try again. Hopefully, we do better the second time.

Our goal is for everyone to learn from our example, as a model for how to have a fair discussion, even with people with whom we disagree.
