Family in America Capitol Hill Symposium, Capitol Visitor’s Center, Washington, DC, April 12, 2013

Synopsis: In the last election, proposed restrictions on “reproductive rights” led Democrats to accuse Republicans of waging a “war on women,” a war which many believe cost Romney the female vote. But is there really a “war on women”? And if so, are the issues those raised in November, or are there other, deeper concerns at stake?

Panelists: Janice Shaw Crouse (Senior Fellow at the Beverly LaHaye Institute), Ross Douthat (New York Times Columnist), Kay Hymowitz (Senior Fellow at The Manhattan Institute), Ryan C. MacPherson (Senior Editor of The Family in America, professor of American History at Bethany Lutheran College, and president of the Hausvater Project), with moderator Allan C. Carlson (President of The Howard Center and Editor of The Family in America)
