  • Abortion can be a divisive social issue and needs to be discussed in a mature environment.

  • We need open and honest conversations about abortion and motherhood.

  • It is wise to consider what to do if one becomes pregnant before rather than when panic sets in.

  • Collecting various advocacy groups together at one forum will help provide a fuller picture of the issue.
