I'm vacationing this week and part of next (back blogging on August 26), but have no fear: I've assembled an all-star team of guest bloggers to fill in while I'm gone. Check out the lineup:
Democratic Reps. Rosa DeLauro and Tim Ryan will be blogging on their bill to reduce the need for abortion by preventing unintended pregnancies and supporting pregnant women and parents.
Focus on the Family President Jim Daly will give his take on President Obama's stated quest for "common ground" around abortion and related issues.
Political strategist Ralph Reed will offer a blueprint for where "values voters" fit into the Republican Party's rebuilding effort.
Bill Hybels, founder of Willow Creek Community Church in the Chicago area, will reveal what Bono taught him about fighting poverty.
And Warren Throckmorton, a psychology professor at Grove City College and former president of the American Mental Health Counselors Association, will dissect a new American Psychological Association report on conversion therapy—the controversial practice that some Christian groups claim coverts homosexuals to straight men and women.
Enjoy their posts, and please feel free to thoughtfully engage my guests in comments.
