We have an exciting announcement today: we’re launching a podcast! Hosted by Ben and Muireann, we’re looking to have better conversations about abortion in audio as well as text.

Our first ‘Season’ of the podcast will be launching soon, and to whet your appetite we have recorded a short trailer episode explaining what our podcast is about.

Check it out!

Season Finale: your questions answered The Minimise Podcast

Ben and Muireann take a look through our comments box and answer some of the questions we’ve been asked over the course of the series. Responding to ‘I wouldn’t have an abortion myself, but I support other people’s choice to have one’ Are pro-lifers hypocrites if they don’t want to punish abortion? Should states be netural on the issue of abortion? Is consent to sex consent to pregnancy? Where is the Minimise Project heading? — Links: https://theminimiseproject.ie/2019/09/12/the-equal-rights-argument-a-great-way-to-have-better-conversations-about-abortion/ https://blog.equalrightsinstitute.com/undervalued-argument-prolife-movement/ https://open.spotify.com/episode/6ujK7Ks0GiFopYIC2UXhBJ https://open.spotify.com/episode/48I9M2UhxtDjgE4sDZlVmk https://theminimiseproject.ie/2019/09/05/does-the-right-to-bodily-autonomy-override-the-right-to-life/
  1. Season Finale: your questions answered
  2. Why are pro-life films so bad? An interview with Rachel Sherlock
  3. What does a pro-life culture mean anway?
  4. Better Conversations: An interview with Josh Brahm of ERI
  5. Do liberals and conservatives think about abortion differently?

We’re going to be tackling questions like ‘How do the different ways that people tend to think about moral questions in general influence their position on abortion?’ (with reference to Jonathan Haidt’s Moral Foundations Theory) and ‘Does our attitude to unchosen burdens have to change in order for our minds to change on abortion?’

We have guests like Josh Brahm of the Equal Rights Institute, one of our big inspirations as a group.

All our Podcasts will be available here at The Minimise Podcast page as they get uploaded. We look forward to launching and hope you’ll join the conversation! (Email us at theminimiseproject@gmail.com with any comments or suggested topics.)
