Future people

Dr Rupert Read (blog) from UEA made the IIIrd and IVth form WP think really hard, firstly about at what age people should be allowed to do things, for example vote, and secondly about what kind of rights we should give to human beings yet to be born. Are we allowed to act in a way which makes their lives miserable? Do they have a right to some of our oil?

He gave a shorter version of this talk to the VIth form after their main session: ‘5 minutes’ then turned into a late evening debate.
