Prose Lounge: Abortion

Roe v. Wade. Abortion committee. "If you can cope with one, you can cope with two." Week 12, week 18. 

Internationally we have seen a setback in the right to free abortions, as demonstrated by the overturning of the Roe Versus Wade ruling by the Supreme Court in the USA. In Norway, the question about abortion has again been opened for huge debate and disagreement.

According to Grethe Fatima Syéd and Kjersti Sandvik the public conversation in Norway has been ineffective. In 2021 they have written a book Hva vi snakker om når vi snakker om abort (What are we speaking about when we speak about abortion?). Syéd and Sandvik meet with gynaecologist and member of the Abortions Appeal Board in Norway Ole-Erik Iversen in conversation about abortion and why it creates such rage from all sides. The conversation with be led by author and journalist Sandra Lillebø.

Afterwards, there will be time for questions from the audience.

The event will be in Norwegian.

In collaboration with NFFO.
