Here's a film clip from Roby Brock on Talk Business on Senate candidate Bill Halter's answer to a question about abortion. Halter, a Catholic, gives a thoughtful, nuanced answer in which he expresses a personal aversion to abortion but a reluctance to impose his beliefs on others. He calls for work on a consensus on the issue that could lead to fewer abortions. In the end, in answer to a question of whether he supports Roe v. Wade as the law of the land, he says, "I do."
