The much-contended issue of abortion will arise on Western's campus tonight in a debate entitled "The Law, The Woman, The Fetus," held in the Althouse College auditorium.
The debate, beginning at 7 p.m., will feature three guest speakers representing both sides of the topic.
The pro-choice side will present former North American debating champion Rob Silver and Harvard debating champion Amber Dolman, while the pro-life side will have Scott Klusendorf, a bio-medical ethicist.
"We thought it would be a good way to present the issue fairly to all those involved so they could make an informed decision," said Theresa Picard, president of the Western Pro-Life Club.
She added a formal abortion debate has not occurred at Western since abortion doctor Henry Morgentaler visited in 1983.
Picard said while they appreciate donations, the event is free for students.
