What's the talk about?

Ann Furedi sets out the ethical arguments for a woman's right to choose. Drawing on the traditions of sociological thinking and moral philosophy, she maintains that there is a strong moral case for recognising autonomy in personal decision-making about reproductive intentions, and that to prevent a woman from making her own choice is to undermine the essence of her humanity. She asserts that true respect for human life and individual conscience demand that we respect a woman's right to decide.

Ann is Chief Executive of British Pregnancy Advisory Service, a not-for-profit provider of abortion services in the UK. She is a leading pro-choice advocate and has written extensively on issues relating to pregnancy and birth control.
