In this memo, which is pegged to our recent poll, we recommend the framework of reducing the need for abortion while preserving the right to have one.

This memo offers new guidance on how to approach the abortion issue in a way that addresses the concerns of the vast and conflicted middle and maintains supports for abortion rights.This new message maintains the progressive principle of supporting abortion rights and encourages progressive leaders to discuss the issue. It also reflects people’s desire for common ground, as well as their concerns about the morality of abortion.
