Charles’ Latest Book

The abortion debate in the United States is very confused. Ratings-driven media coverage highlights extreme views and creates the illusion that we’re stuck in a hopeless stalemate.

Camosy argues that our polarized public discourse hides the fact that most Americans actually agree on the basic issues at stake in abortion morality and law. First unpacking the real complexity of the abortion issue, he shows that placing oneself on either side of the typical polarizations — pro-life vs. pro-choice, liberal vs. conservative, Democrat vs. Republican — only serves to further confuse the debate and limits our ability to have fruitful dialogue.

Finally, Camosy proposes a new public policy that is consistent with the beliefs of the broad majority of Americans and supported by the best ideas and arguments about abortion from both secular and religious sources.
