Margaret Pabst Battin, professor of philosophy and adjunct professor of medical ethics in the School of Medicine at the University of Utah, will speak on "Sex and Consequences: World Population Growth vs. Reproductive Rights?"
Battin has been chosen to give the 54th annual Reynolds lecture by the Frederick William Reynolds Society.Her talk will be at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25, in the Fine Arts Auditorium on the University of Utah campus.
Battin believes there are two major camps regarding the world population issue - those who favor limiting the number of children to save the world and those who favor reproductive liberty to have as many children as the individual wants. Battin contends there is a middle way between the two viewpoints.
