Babies: Abort or Support

October 23 | Noon - 1:15 p.m. | Union 232

The event will focus on:

  • Providing a greater understanding of abortion and what is happening to the bodies of mothers.
  • Helping students explore and find common ground with opinions that may be different than their own.
  • Finding comfort in talking about topics that can often be considered taboo.
  • Providing a safe space where students may ask questions and learn about a topic that is considered to be taboo.


Lonald Wishom, WSUSA VP for Diversity 2011-12 created Taboo Talks because, in his words, "I think that our country has reached a point where everyone is so eager to claim that we are in a post oppression society that it's hard to discuss issues of oppression. It's rare to engage in dialog about issues such as race, sexuality, religion and politics without worrying about being viewed negatively by people with differing views; this results in a lack of these discussions and a lack of understanding differences. I envisioned Taboo Talks being a safe place to discuss differences in ideas in an effort to inform and educate WSU students on different views."

The Center for Diversity & Unity looks forward to supporting the continuation of this program with each new WSUSA VP for Diversity as we seek to establish connection and build community at Weber State, in Utah and across the globe.

These events are free and open to the public.
