The perennially divisive debate over abortion has heated up again with the resignation of Sandra Day O'Connor from the Supreme Court. Both pro-life and pro-choice groups see the vacancy as an opportunity that must be seized. But is there a way to find common ground in the abortion debate?

Guests:

Julie Rovner, NPR's health policy correspondent

Ann Stone, national chair of Republicans for Choice
