Obama, Abortion, and the 95-10 Legislation

Democrats for Life propose "a comprehensive package of federal legislation and policy proposals that will reduce the number of abortions by 95% in the next 10 years."

Douglas Kmiec (pro-life, pro-Obama) is Caruso Family Chair and Professor of Constitutional Law at Pepperdine University. He argues that Obama should endorse something similar, pleasing neither of the absolutist sides of the abortion debate, but unifying the country nonetheless.

Ross Douthat responds.
