    Yes I do believe it’s possible but only if we stop using this as a wedge issue to further political campaigns. As Americans we all believe in the idea of unalienable rights but we get railroaded by emotional arguments that short circuit our rational minds. The problem with the abortion debate is that all serious discussion has been co-opted by the spin of the pro-choice V pro-life sides as if we aren’t all pro-life and pro-choice. The PL side believes that life begins at conception and the PC side does not believes that the fertilized egg has the same status of life we assign to “human beings” for moral purposes. It is obvious that cells are alive but do they have life?Without a scientifically valid way of determining when life begins we must fall back on our beliefs and we have a separation of church and state for a reason. No one has the right to force their beliefs on anyone else and yet that is exactly what the pro-life supporters are trying to do. That doesn’t mean that we don’t have a moral obligation to error on the side of caution. It’s the reason that partial birth and late term abortions are restricted. I believe and will radically support your right to choose to believe what ever you choose and your right to try and convince others you are right. I fully support the Pro-life sides efforts to convince people that abortion is morally wrong. But I will just as radically support the Pro-choices right to choose their own beliefs. It’s time we stop using spin to divide and conquer the American public for personal political gain. It’s time we hold true to the founding principles of our democracy. “We hold theses truths to de self evident, that all men (mankind) are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Let each man choose his own beliefs as long as he lets others do the same.
