On the Fact that as Long as There Are People on the Right Who Continue to Think that it's OK to Mandate that a Woman Remain Pregnant for 9 Months and People on the Left Who Continue to Think that it's OK to Destroy an 8 1/2 Month-Old Fetus Because the Mother Is Experiencing Minor Depression, the Issue of Abortion Will Continue to Be an Intractable One FOREVER

Abortion is a difficult moral dilemma because it involves a balancing of rights; the rights of the child-bearing woman versus the rights of the unborn child, but if in fact you look at it logically and dispassionately, there does seem to be a sane middle-ground (i.e., ceding to the woman early in the pregnancy/the first trimester but gradually giving more and more rights to the fetus as it approaches and reaches viability) and I ask you, wouldn't that be a nice place to be after decades and decades of people like Phyllis Schlafly, Wendy Davis, Henry Hyde, Hillary Clinton, Randall Terry, Kate Michelman, Sarah Palin, etc.? I certainly wouldn't mind it.
