One thought on “Episode 37: News Update

  1. It is interesting to me, in the abortion discussion, that one of your hosts refers to “they” (I’m assuming covering all those that are against abortion) without describing those she is refering to, and without any information or specific group mentioned. Yet when your other host (or guest, I’m not sure I have never listened to this show before) refers to studies done on the topic of gender decided abortions each of you agrees that the studies are left for wanting and neglect good sample size. Do you see the irony? How about discussing a specific group, their views and why they believe what they believe, in contrast to your discussion (like good journalists should do), rather than pointing in a general direction and blaming “them” for all the problems that abortion advocates have.
