    Forum SF Supervisor Proposes Planned Parenthood 'Buffer Zone' A San Francisco supervisor is looking to expand the zone that separates reproductive health clinics like Planned Parenthood from anti-abortion protesters.

Supporters say it will protect the patients who visit these clinics from being harassed -- but protesters say it infringes on their free speech rights.

    Family Doctors and Suicide -- Colorado is famous for some mass shootings like those in Columbine and Aurora. But also in the state, suicides by gun outnumbered firearm homicides by nearly four to one. Family practice doctors are often the first line of response for somebody with depression or mental health problems. Eric Whitney from Colorado Public Radio looks at one rural family doctor who has never treated a gunshot wound -- but had a patient commit suicide with a firearm, how it affected him, and how he is rethinking his practice because of it.

    Radio Specials Intelligence Squared U.S. 'America Doesn't Need a Strong Dollar Policy' -- It's often taken for granted that America needs a strong dollar. When the value of the U.S. dollar is strong relative to other currencies, it becomes attractive to investors and allows Americans to buy foreign goods and services cheaply. But in times of recession, are we better off with a weak dollar that stimulates U.S. manufacturing by making our goods cheaper and more competitive? Or will the loss of purchasing power and currency manipulation abroad, offset the potential gains?The Oxford-style debate program returns as panelists tackle the motion, "America doesn't need a strong dollar policy."
