Stephanie Gray's Abortion Talk Uses the Socratic Method

Abortion is a controversial topic if there ever was one, but Stephanie Gray's abortion talk aims to discuss it with civility and intelligence. Though the sensitive issue often incites intense emotions, its also as important a topic as any to think about clearly, which is just what Gray works to do.

Gray herself is avowedly pro-life, and that's not a fact that she hides during her abortion talk. Regardless of her own political leanings, however, she's ultimately on the side of "pro-conversation." In other words, she's looking to make abortion a more civil topic that people can discuss without ending up at each others' throats. Part of that means breaking the issue down and considering it on an abstract level, and part of it means acting gracefully and respectfully when one encounters an opinion that differs from one's own.
