Life and Death -- Principles and Politics
A Conversation about Abortion, Bioethics, and American Politics


In the past three decades, the "life issues" -- abortion, euthanasia, infanticide, and embryo-destroying research -- have reshaped American law, politics, and culture. Ramesh Ponnuru, senior editor at National Review, considers each of these issues and the larger question of the fundamental human right to life in his new book, The Party of Death. His book has already inspired impassioned debate -- with some embracing his argument and others challenging it.
In this evening conversation, Mr. Ponnuru and EPPC's Eric Cohen considered the politics of life in America and the ethical questions that animate it. Audio of this event is available by clicking the link at the bottom.
