Tune in Wednesday night for "Election Whine"

CORRECTION: This post previously referred to "Tuesday, November 2nd." November 2nd is actually Wednesday. Sorry about that.

Secular Pro-Life president Kelsey Hazzard here.

With both major-party candidates sporting negative approval ratings, with people unfriending each other on social media over politics, and with voters wondering out loud which candidate has the least bad record on sexual assault, this presidential election season is objectively awful.

The ugly divisiveness of this election is a huge problem for the United States in general, but it specifically threatens the pro-life movement. Building a strong majority to prevent abortion has always required some reaching across the aisle—but the aisle has gotten a lot wider.

I'm pleased to announce my participation in Students for Life of America's effort to make this election a little less awful:

This will be a friendly debate, live-streamed on facebook, between two pro-lifers who respectfully disagree about the presidential election. It will be a place to air our respective best cases, while reaffirming our commitment to working together in the future. Best of all, there will be wine.

I will represent the #NeverTrump position, while Lauren Muzyka of Sidewalk Advocates for Life will represent the pro-Trump position. Students for Life of America selected us because (a) we can play nice, and (b) we're both lawyers.

So pour yourself a glass of wine and tune in live on the Students for Life of America facebook page this Wednesday night at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific. You've earned it.
