Description

This week the Gwartney team talks about two different thought experiments brought up by Dr. Justin Clarke on Abortion. These thought experiments run through the first and second half of the show. The team then analyzes each of the arguments brought up by the experiment to see which one is better in comparison. The first thought experiment is Judith Jarvis Thomson's, A Defence of Abortion. The second one is Don Marquis's, Why Abortion is Immoral. Enjoy the show!
