Who should cede the abortion issue once and for all, and end this American discussion?

Roe vs. Wade is the law of the land, but pro-lifers and conservative Christians, etc. are antiabortion.

Who cedes this once and for all?

abortion is a death penalty imposed on those who can't protect themselves.

compromise is the key to ending the debate on abortion.

Most americans support abortion on demand up to the end of the first trimester, but not after that.

the right demands no abortion at all and the left demands abortion up until the fetus passes through the birth canal. both positions are extreme and NOT popular with the majority of americans.

BS on the bolded. The left does not demand abortion up until birth. Never have, never will. The right needs to give it up. Abortion is the law of the land. And here I thought the Right was all about the law of the land, I guess not.

I've already expressed my opinion on this. If a woman's health is at risk, emotional trauma from rape or incest in the early stages of pregnancy those would be my only exceptions for abortion and those would be my compromises.

I have a FB friend who actually just posted her support of abortion for any reason throughout the entire pregnancy, so yes, such extremes do exist. I am pro-choice but that is far too extreme for me.

Neither, make it a state issue subject to the democratic process, rather than judicial fiat. A minority of states will outlaw abortion, and an even smaller minority of the population will live in a state that outlaws abortion. Many states will place restrictions on abortion somewhere between complete legality and complete illegality, which is the most democratic outcome.

With such a controversial issue, there will be no ultimate victory and defeat. Compromise is the best way, and thankfully our system has a great way to accomplish this.

The big problem with abortion is that women want the Government and men in particular to have no say in their decisions yet still want the Government and men in particular to be financially liable for their decisions.

The pro-lifers should surrender, because they're really anti-choice/forced-birth
