Abortion not solvable by the Government

About: the observer - abortion issue unsolvable through government

At last someone agrees with me! See 1535 & 3528
source: ...

I believe that the abortion issue is unsolvable through the government. Positions on abortion are so entrenched in religious sentiment that no compromise seems available. Without room for compromise, total victory cannot be achieved by any ideology. While I personally find the idea of abortion repulsive, I believe more strongly that everyone has the individual right to make such a private, moral decision. Some may see the Roe decision as appallingly one-sided, but I see it to be an adequate compromise. To negate this decision and put the issue to democratic process would only be submitting it to the "tyranny of the majority." If we are ever to reach any finality, it is imperative that those of all viewpoints make an effort to understand the issue. It is in this I believe we can all agree.
