At Issue is common sense
Human dignity resides at the core of all public policy.
The question is, however, whether the policy advances or hinders it.
Can you feel it? There is a natural tension alive in any vibrant republic. It rightly tightens in the democratic tug and pull of contrasting ideas. Yet when self-interest and inhumanity prevail against all good conscience and against natural law, it wounds us deeply. Today in America the positive tension that bound us in common cause for two centuries now binds us in separate camps. It has divided our nation, pit mother against child, government against citizen, and brother against brother.
The compass of our national conscience is spinning in flux, erratic and unstable. Pulled from safe harbor, with anchors gone, we have exchanged death for life, vice for virtue, unnatural for innate, temporal for eternal.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Common Sense Issues was formed to step on deck to help steady the compass. We have addressed ourselves to seven key issue areas – significant, complex, impolitic to be sure, and certainly inconvenient. But not, we believe, impossible to correct.
We believe in order to develop enduring solutions each must begin by advancing the dignity of human life, and the best will flow from there. That’s just common sense. Will you join us?
