Debate: Roe vs. Wade

Should the U.S. overturn the Supreme Court case of Roe vs. Wade, which legalized abortion? SMU Debate will host a public debate on the issue, with team members providing opening and closing speeches while allowing half an hour for audience arguments for and against the resolution. A final ballot will be taken regarding the audience opinion at the end of the hour. The event is one of a series of public debates on controversial issues sponsored by SMU Debate for the campus and Dallas community. Dr. Ben Voth, associate professor and director of debate in Meadows’ Corporate Communication and Public Affairs Division, will moderate.
