Doctors Helen Watt and Anthony McCarthy debate the issue "Is Abortion Always Wrong?".
With Anthony playing the role of devil's advocate, Helen & Anthony explore common pro-abortion arguments and demonstrate how none of them hold up under scrutiny. If you've ever wondered how to break through the rhetoric of "pro-choice" slogans, this video is a must-watch!
