Abortion and the live-and-let-live ethic

David Christensen
Director of Congressional Affairs, Family Research Council

You’ve heard the saying “live and let live.” To a great extent, many Americans hold to some form of this ethic. It suggests a type of tolerance toward others.

Where the limits should be drawn in a free society is often the focus of debate. So it is with abortion.
