David Gushee's belief that abortion is more a societal issue than a legislative (or political) one is completely on target. You can't legislate a profound appreciation for life - it has to be ingrained in our moral consciousness. It's something we have to teach our children from the start. The day a pregnant woman and those around her believe that finding a means to accommodate the yet to be born child is more important than finding a means to eliminate it we will finally see an end to "expedient" abortions. That will take not only a personal commitment to the preservation of life but a societal willingness and capability to care for the life brought forth. It really will take a village to solve this particular problem - and what a marvelous village that will be.
