common ground on abortion

COMMON GROUND….This is a good start. Pro-lifers? The ball is in your court.

(I hardly need say, of course, that pro-lifers will come out against this, claiming that the proposed legislation is “deceptive” and “full of loopholes”. But it puts them in a tough position. What? You’re not for reducing unwanted pregnancies? Really? Who’s not for reducing unwanted pregnancies? They’ll come up with an answer, no doubt, but my guess is it won’t be terribly convincing.)
