Common Ground or Slippery Slope? ‘Common ground’ has become an idiom for ‘fund abortionists’

Today Reps. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) and Rosa DeLauro (D-Connecticut) announced that they will again sponsor the “Preventing Unintended Pregnancies, Reducing the Need for Abortion and Supporting Parents Act.” Though advertised as “common ground,” the bill re-hashes approaches that have been tried, funded, and failed to reduce abortions. This time it is packaged as “a unique approach” inspired by “the spirit of President Barack Obama’s call to find common ground between the pro-choice and pro-life communities.” “The Ryan/DeLauro bill will fund abortion groups and programs such as ‘comprehensive sex-ed’ — which has no evidence of reducing abortions. No pro-life group with a proven track record backs this bill. ‘Common ground’ has become an idiom for ‘fund abortionists,'” stated Concerned Women for America President Wendy Wright.
