How To (And Not To) Theorise on Abortion in Light of Technological Developments
On May 4th, Dr. Giulia Cavaliere, lecturer at King’s College London, will address two arguments that have been proposed regarding the connection between abortion and ectogestation. The first argument suggests that ectogestation offers a resolution or conclusion to the issue of abortion, while the second argument asserts that the availability of safe and successful ectogestation raises doubts about the ethical and legal validity of current abortion practices.
The lectures will take place on Thursday, April 6th and May 4th, via Zoom, from 12.30 – 1.30 pm. Register here
