Bpas/Debating Matters: Reproductive Health - Decisions & Dilemmas

A new Debating Matters project, in partnership with the the British Pregnancy Advisory Service (bpas), to encourage students to consider moral and ethical dilemmas around reproductive health

Two invitation only events for schools, staged at Birmingham Law School and Brighton and Sussex Medical School, our unique debate format, together with expert witness speakers, will allow young people to think about these issues in a reflective and more philosophical way than they might be able to either within the school curriculum, or as part of the broader, competitive Debating Matters Competition.

Our Birmingham event in 2015 was hosted and supported by the Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research at Birmingham University.

Our second project event will be held on 8 March at Brighton and Sussex Medical School. See a full programme and access the the bespoke Topic Guides below.
