This brief memo provides messaging advice and policy recommendations to help progressives better understand and reach moderates on the issue of abortion. We believe that the key to winning the debate over hot-button culture issues is to appeal to the middle by winning what we call “the battle of reasonableness.” Our suggested framework is reducing the need for abortion while protecting the right to have one. This framework allows progressives to hold onto pro-choice principles while addressing the moral concerns that the middle has on abortion.
