The Eighth  

The Eighth

Author: HeadStuff Podcasts

HeadStuff Podcast Network presents The Eighth, a podcast series documenting the upcoming referendum on the Eighth Amendment to the constitution of Ireland. Going beyond the ten minute head-to-heads and media talking points, The Eighth has long, sticky, moral and open conversations with people on all sides of the debate and none, those in the middle ground and those who are confused about how to vote in the referendum. We ask: where do both sides of the debate part ways? Is it right to morally equate the life of the woman with prenatal life? And when does life truly begin? This podcast attempts to answer these questions, and more, through the lens of a pro-choice host who is attempting to bring clarity, understanding and some degree of common ground to this incredibly fraught space.
