    All Things Considered Military Suicide Prevention Military suicides hit another record in 2012. It's now more common for an American soldier to kill himself than be killed in action. The Army has tried everything from a buddy system to 24-hour hotlines. The latest suicide prevention effort deploys psychiatrists and counselors to the front lines of the suicide fight -- where soldiers live and work while home from war.

    Radio Specials Intelligence Squared U.S. 'Israel Can Live With a Nuclear Iran' -- Despite increased international pressure and economic sanctions, the IAEA reported that Iran doubled its number of underground nuclear centrifuges over the summer of 2012, stopping just short of the capacity to produce nuclear fuel. Can Iran be trusted to act as a rational actor, or is Israel correct in viewing it as an existential threat? Prime Minister Netanyahu has criticized President Obama for his refusal to draw a "red line" that would trigger U.S. military action, hinting at the prospect of a pre-emptive Israeli strike. But what are the costs and benefits of military action? Is a nuclear Iran inevitable, and will it destabilize the region? The Oxford-style debate program tackles the motion "Israel Can Live With a Nuclear Iran."

    Moyers & Company What's Fueling Today's Abortion Debate? This year marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that overturned many federal and state restrictions on a woman's right to an abortion. But while polls show that most Americans support the decision, and that a majority -- for the first time -- believe abortion should be legal in all or most cases, anti-abortion forces show no sign of relenting. Bill Moyers discusses the fierce challenges facing the reproductive rights movement with Jessica Gonzalez-Rojas, executive director of the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health; and Lynn Paltrow, founder and executive director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women.
