On abor­tion, find mid­dle ground

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

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.
