After the break, we leave lightness behind and get very serious on a serious topic, abortion, as that topic may be viewed by vegans and animal rights proponents. Our guests are Sherry Colb (you know her from Mind If I Order the Cheeseburger?) and her husband, Michael Dorfboth Cornell University law professors, and co-authors of the new book, Beating Hearts: Abortion and Animal RightsIt’s a departure for us to take on such a controversial topic, but I believe that it was covered with dignity and respect for all views.
