7-2 Difficult Questions

Difficult Questions

Is finding a successful method of birth control the only problem? What if a method is found that an individual would find effective, but it is forbidden for use by their government? How much can a government interfere with the lives of individuals?

Consider these difficult questions:

• How much should the government of a free nation have to say about birth control?

• Should it be regulated?

• If so, to what extent?

Work with a group of students to come up with answers to these questions. When you can agree, report on your opinions to the class and be prepared to back them up. If you cannot agree, allow for a minority opinion, making sure that both sides have reasoned arguments for their opinion.
