Wade</em>. To try to gain some insights into our cultural divide, we'll spend the week comparing the debate in the U.S. to those of other countries. It's part of our occasional series <a href="http://www.wbez.org/herethere" target="_self"><em>Here, There</em></a>, where we examine how other cultures approach universal issues. We kick off the series with WBEZ's <a href="http://www.wbez.org/staff/michael-puente" target="_self">Michael Puente</a>, who tells us why Indiana has become ground zero in the country’s battle over abortion. We also take a look at France, where, like the U.S., abortion became legal in the 1970s. Rather than having a protracted political debate, the French have reached a consensus on the issue.</p></p> Mon, 08 Aug 2011 14:00:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/episode/worldview-8811
