After Donald Trump’s election, Roe v. Wade may well be overturned in the years ahead. Let the abortion debates begin (again)!

Today (Nov. 16) some Wayne State University students are bringing to campus Nadine Strossen, former president of the ACLU, and Scott Klusendorf, an anti-abortion advocate, to re-start the abortion debate. Pro choice and pro life students and advocacy groups are expected to turn out to make their voices heard on this issue.

The debate topic, “Abortion: Is this ‘Reproductive Right’ a ‘Moral Wrong’”, looks different in view of last week’s election results and the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade.

The debate will take place at 6:30 pm Wednesday, November 16, at the Community Arts Auditorium. It will be moderated by national radio host and Detroit pastor Christopher Brooks (who also serves as dean of the Detroit campus of Moody Theological Seminary). The event is free and open to the public. Parking information is at parking.wayne.edu.

This event will be streamed at wayne.edu/live
