Life begins at conversation.
Anna Quindlen writes in Newsweek that those who support reproductive rights need to talk more to those who don't:
Those of us who support reproductive rights like to say that polls show many Americans are on our side. The truth is that they are on our side, but. But they are troubled by what they've heard about certain methods. But they're concerned about what they can see on the sonogram. How come, they ask, an unaccompanied 14-year-old can't get a tattoo but can get an abortion? How come when you want it it's called a baby and when you don't it's called a fetus? And how come they're made to feel unreasonable and ignorant when they ask such questions? How come we don't call it as they feel it?Yes. And yet, given a whole column of speech, Anna Quindlen doesn't try to answer these tough questions. That's revealing.
Difficult questions should not be met with silence or slogans; they should be met with speech, speech and more speech.
