Nebraska’s new abortion law forced Danielle Deaver to give birth to a baby she and her doctors knew would die minutes later, fighting for breath that would not come.
In "Two men, No Uterus," Will
Saletan and Steve Waldman spent as much time as possible complimenting each other’s work and as
little as possible on real substance. In the end they suggest that "common ground" is a political football game based on a fake play.
What is common ground? Can pro-lifers embrace birth control? Can pro-choicers embrace abortion’s moral complexity? Should we pay women not to have an abortion? Will Saletan, of Slate, and I consider all the complicated questions.
The value of our work is not solely about reducing abortions, or even unintended pregnancies. It is about creating a sense of ownership among women and men about their own body and their relationships with others.
