On abortion, find middle ground
Abortions have been carried out throughout history and probably will continue.
A moral society needs to find some balance between the rights of the mother and the rights of the fetus, as well as determine under what conditions abortion is justified.
It makes no more sense to permit abortion for any reason at any time in a pregnancy than it does to insist an invisible, singlecell fertilized egg is fully human (rather than a blueprint) with all the rights provided by the Constitution.
Hopefully, the benefits of modern science and reasonable leadership will help us come to a better solution than the current political football we have.
