It takes an open and intelligent mind that always seeks truth, willing to go wherever that leads. Becoming a parent also helps.


‘How should we talk about abortion?’

Sheila Liaugminas | 10 May 2011 | SHEILA REPORTS |  
tags: ethics of abortion, pro-choice terminology, pro-life movement
That was the subject of discussion on an hour of radio dedicated to changing the terms of debate between people who are pro-life and those who are pro-choice. Or even starting one….since both groups have been largely talking to themselves for decades.
