That's something I dislike about our current political climate. On pretty much every debate, you have to pick between the two extremes. In the debate on birth control, that means you are either pro-choice or pro-life. Politics apparently doesn't allow moderate or in-between positions, like these:
- "I approve of birth control, but not abortions"
- "I think abortions are wrong, but they should be legal"
- "I believe abortions are wrong, but they are justified in the case of rape"
I've noticed that both political parties love moderate politicians...provided that they are in the other political party. They dislike moderates in their own party. That might be part of the problem.
