The Culture of Life

Download Audio
photoThe Terri Schiavo drama, in all its complexity, goes on along with America's charged debate over life and death issues. These issues, which once lived in Sunday sermons, are now ruling conversations at kitchen tables and workplace water coolers.

Terri Schiavo isn't the only life and death issue that has Americans up in arms. There's the war in Iraq, the debate over the death penalty, the core fight over abortion, and the stem cell research dilemma.

Hear about clashing American attitudes over life, death, choice, and the "culture of life."
