The term stirs strong emotions.
The 1973 US Supreme Court ruling Roe v. Wade ruled that the Texas state law prohibiting abortion except to save the life of the mother was unconstitutional. The effect was nullifying all laws regulating abortion but perhaps the bigger impact was further polarizing pro-life and pro-choice movements.
Supreme Court nominees and political candidates are grilled on their abortion views as all sides jockey for more or fewer abortion limits.
Is it possible to find any common ground?
Canonizer thinks there is.
Here is the Abortion topic where people can weigh in.
Every candidate and every political party who fields candidates for public office should both have and publish their position on this camp topic (Abortion) as a condition for public support, so people know how the candidate proposes to represent them, and they (the people) can hold him (shorthand for all genders) accountable for how their actual representation and votes compare to what their campaign position on this topic was.
