Cooklin serves as panelist at CMU deliberative democracy forum


Dec. 3, 2018

Katie Cooklin, a Slippery Rock University professor of philosophy, was a panelist at the Deliberative Forum on The Issue of Abortion in America, a forum hosted by Carnegie Mellon University's Program for Deliberative Democracy.

The panel, which also included a physician, a legal theorist and a social worker, addressed abortion in America and engaged citizens with the goal to improve public decision-making through an informed, structured discussion. Coupled with a similar deliberative forum at Temple University, results from the discussions will be shared with the Pennsylvania State Legislature and the Pennsylvania Women's Caucus.
