Debaters on the subject of abortion never really clash head-on — they don’t even talk to each other. They just trade cliches, endlessly recycling words that deny what is really at stake. And “pro-life” and “pro-choice” are just black-and-white abstractions. They fail to address scientific, ethical, and moral gray areas, such as the definition of “personhood” and the devastating effects that anti-abortion legislation has on the actual lives of women.
Despite the media’s overwhelming coverage of foreign terrorism, there’s a much bigger problem here at home.
