No 'common ground' when it comes to abortion

A Christian actor is weighing in on President Barack Obama's comments regarding abortion during his recent commencement speech at Notre Dame.

Stephen Baldwin his speech, President Obama encouraged both sides in the abortion debate to find common ground on the issue. "I do not suggest that the debate surrounding abortion can or should go away," he stated. "Because no matter how much we may want to fudge it, indeed while we know that the views of most Americans on the subject are complex and even contradictory, the fact is that at some level the views of the two camps are irreconcilable. Each side will continue to make its case to the public with passion and conviction -- but surely we can do so without reducing those with differing views to caricature. Open hearts, open minds, fair-minded words."

The president's appearance at the country's foremost Catholic university was shrouded in controversy, with many pro-life supporters protesting both his appearance and the university's decision to award the president an honorary degree.
During an interview on Fox & Friends, actor Stephen Baldwin said while he admired the president's call for open hearts and open minds, he believes there is no common ground when it comes to babies being killed at the hands of abortionists.
"When you're dealing with serious pro-lifers, there's no gray matter here," he contends. "There's no conversation...the therapist is not in here."
Baldwin believes there will be a long-term backlash against Notre Dame in the wake of President Obama's appearance.
