I applaud Pres. Obama's overture. It is also important to read the commencement addresses of Fr. Jenkins and Judge Noonan. The key to moving ahead is finding common ground, and here are a few areas to start:
1.Human life is sacred and worthy of protection (to various degrees).
2.Women should be allowed to have abortions, at least in the earlier stages of pregnancy.
3.The number of abortions should be reduced by
a.promoting adoption.
b.supporting programs that reduce unplanned pregnancies.
c.supporting welfare programs for the poor that encourage women to consider alternatives to abortion.
d. restricting late term abortions.
4.Medical professionals should not be required to participate in abortions against their consciences.
