In this episode, Raisa Galea discusses the debate on abortion in Malta with Andrea Dibben, a social policy academic and chairperson of Women’s Rights Foundation, and David Zammit, Head of Department of Civil Law at the University of Malta.
Together, they reflect on the reasons for resistance to legalising abortion in Malta as well as its moral, legal and social aspects. What are the limits to personal choices? Does every living thing truly wish to live? Who are the most vulnerable beings deserving protection—pregnant women or embryos? These and other questions are discussed in the podcast.
