An Interesting Take on Abortion
Steve Waldman has an interesting idea. You may know that I don't have a lot riding on the abortion debate but that a great many of my friends list it amongst their highest political priorities on either side of the issue. I have my ideas but honestly would rather the debate was treated with less urgency and vehemence than it is as I feel it distracts from more important and specifically more solvable issues. I'm not sure Waldman's solution is realistic or answers important obstacles for either side. I do wonder if embracing it would bring both sides closer to their goals than continuing the ill-used debate as it is.
