Writing for the non-profit Divided We Fall, TC’s Peter Coleman suggests a group of Boston women offer a clue to Americans seeking common ground following the U.S. Supreme Court reversal of Roe v. Wade.
“Now is the time to talk,” says Coleman, Professor of Psychology & Education and Director of the Morton Deutsch International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution.
Coleman acknowledges no minds have been changed over 25 years of dialogue among Boston pro-choice and anti-abortion advocates. But personal engagement has nonetheless allowed the group to set aside “profound moral differences.”
The interaction has moreover created pathways to understanding the “trade-offs and contradictions inherent in their own positions on abortion.”
