Topics for the third in-class essay;

The assignment sheet for the third and final in class essay is available here.

In an unusual coincidence, today on Fresh Air NPR aired a piece titled “Personhood in the Womb: A Constitutional Question.” I wasn’t able to listen to the entire piece, but what I did hear suggested that it was an intelligent, reasonable discussion of some of the questions we’ve been considering. If the topic remains of interest to you, you might find it worth your while to listen to the program and/or read the transcript.

Film: Girl Rising

On Wednesday, December 4, there will be an on-campus screening of the film Girl Rising. If you have time available that day, it will be worth your while.

The screening is being co-sponsored by BAVO, Campus Ministry, and She’s the First. The event will be held in Vander Vennet Theatre and will begin at 4:45 with a pizza supper; girls from the ages of 9 – 13 who participate in the Boys and Girls Club will also be attending.
