    Whether that is needed for the discussion to move forward depends on what the discussion is.

    Politcal Correctness

    I identify myself as a non-politically correct progressive. I am for gay rights, trans rights, social justice etc and am not politically correct. And is by no means a contradiction.

    I consider explicit consent to be consent that is explicit as in saying "Yes, I want to do that".

    To chime in:

    I'd say an increasing respect for the legal rights of the unborn as the unborn develops is definitely not an arbitrary standard.

    That's not particularly accurate. The goal of the abortion is not to kill the child. It's to end the pregnancy. Of course in ending the pregnancy, the fetus dies, but that is a side-effect of...
