The issue of abortion is difficult and challenges our entire nation. The debate can be simplified.
Abortion is MY decision in consultation with my doctors: ME, ME, ME
Abortion is the shared decision of the mother, father and developing fetus in consultation with our doctors: WE, WE, WE
Which side are you on: Me or We?
Senator Tom Cotton took issue (6.21.19) “Last week, hundreds of liberal CEOs took out an ad saying pro-life laws that protect unborn babies are ‘bad for business.’” They wrote the after multiple states, notably Georgia and Alabama, enacted controversial laws that placed tighter restrictions on abortions.
“But some things are bigger than the bottom line. Life is worth fighting for.”

Business leaders such as Bloomberg chair Peter Grauer, fashion designers Diane von Furstenberg and Rebecca Minkoff, and Yelp CEO Jeremy Stoppelman participated. They called on companies to “stand up for reproductive health care.”
“Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health, independence and economic stability of our employees and customers. Simply put, it goes against our values, and is bad for business.”
The conservative senator claims, “The loudest objections to pro-life laws haven’t come from normal citizens but from cultural elites & giant corporations wielding their power as a weapon. We’re witnessing a disturbing attempt to shut down debate on an issue of life and death. We have to call it out.”
Why is Senator Cotton fired up?
“CEOs want company men and women, not family men & women. They support their employees, as long as they stay unattached and on the clock.”
He may have a point there.
We consider ourselves the best and brightest people in the world. Can we solve this challenge civilly?
