The question of women's rights and abortion many times is framed in terms of human rights. In a talk at Google headquarters, Stephanie Gray discussed the concept of human rights and what this concept means for abortion rights. During her talk, she began with a point of common ground on which many people agree: the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (21:07 - 24:41). After watching, we suggest answering the following questions, preferably in dialogue with someone else:
"Do you agree with the UN Declaration's approach to human rights and personhood? If you believe in human rights, on what do you think they are based - human nature or something else?"
