Abortion: A Respectful Conversation about a Difficult Topic

Opinions about this medical procedure are so controversial and compelling that they influenced the outcome of the 2016 presidential election. Why? How common is abortion? How are abortions performed? What is “late term” abortion? What is “partial birth” abortion? What is “abortion reversal”? Is abortion safe? What is the Hyde amendment? What is the global gag rule? What are TRAP laws? Should there be legislated limits on the timing of abortion?

We will explore this complex issue through a facilitated discussion of hypothetical cases led by an obstetrician –gynecologist.

Linda Dunn M.D. practiced high risk obstetrics and reproductive genetics in Philadelphia for 29 years. She is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Maternal Fetal Medicine, and Clinical Genetics. Linda and her family have been coming to MDI since 1983. She and her husband Jeff became full time residents in 2015. She is on the board of Acadia Senior College and is a member of the curriculum committee.

Please note: Acadia Senior College cancels events for snow days when the MDI schools close for snow/weather  events.  When the school system declares a delay, we will cancel events occurring within the delay time period.

Note: new this season, in fairness to Sip's wait staff, each patron will be charged $5 and receive a coffee and pastry. (Unless patron is purchasing more than a $5 breakfast.) As always, tips are appropriate.
