Following the annual March for Life in Washington, DC, Russia Today featured a segment about the continued debate over abortion in the United States. Following the segment, RT hosted a debate between pro-choice and anti-choice advocates. I represented Feminists for Choice, and Anna Franzonello represented Americans United for Life.
We debated several aspects of the abortion debate, including whether the Supreme Court was the best mechanism for legalizing abortion, or whether states should have been given the opportunity to make the decision themselves. We discussed taxpayer funding for abortion, and also explained why we attended the March for Life. It was my first television appearance so naturally I was incredibly nervous, but I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. The show’s host was great, and the Ms. Franzonello was a good co-panelist.
