Forty years after Roe v. Wade the abortion debate rages on. Isn't it time for the two 'sides' to find their common ground and work from there?
Nobody is 'pro-abortion.' Some people, however, are for abortion rights. Instead of arguing over whether or not the right exists (as the Court has ruled it does, to a point) how about we start trying to reduce (ideally to zero) the number of abortions? And can't we best do that by reducing (ideally to zero) the number of unwanted pregnancies?Both 'sides' can promote their favored approach. If you believe that abstinence from sex is the key, promote away. Just don't expect the other 'side' to not have their say. People that favor a more comprehensive approach aren't being ideological, they're being pragmatic, i.e. looking at results. Stop fighting and work together. (What a concept.)
