In many ways, Latino views on reproductive health put us at the forefront of efforts to find a constructive public dialogue regarding abortion.

Labels of pro-choice and pro-life do not mean much without the context of textured layers of values and empathy. In fact, in the Gallup poll a majority of people say they are pro-life and they believe abortion should be legal.
