COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Focus on the Family president Jim Daly says he will reach out to abortion-rights advocates in an effort to make abortion less common.

Daly’s comments on his radio show Friday and reported by The Denver Post signals a shift in the ministry’s stance that abortion is always wrong. Daly says the ministry will continue to work to outlaw abortion but says he hopes working with abortion-rights advocates might eliminate up to 30,000 abortions each year.

Focus on the Family spokesman Gary Scheenberger says there’s no list yet on which groups the ministry will reach out to.

Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains officials say they’re willing to listen.

Daly replaced James Dobson after the conservative Christian ministry’s founder cut ties with the organization in October 2009.

    Should have been talking! Planned Parenthood under the gun now so is willing to recognize the part they play in the 30,000 (what’s that figure?) deaths of babies every year.

    Abortion is bad for every body.

    To have a say in who does what to their body, the ones who want this power should have to pay all the bills for those who they are trying to control, and I mean all the bills!!!!!!!!!!! This would then be illegal(i.e. Slavery), what they should do is get a program in place to place the millions of orphans that don’t have a good home, get it to a 10% ratio of non placement, then maybe people would stop having abortions!!!! But Nooooo, people sit at these clinics and belittle and scare these girls, who are having a hard enough time with this decision, and when they convince them,we the tax payer are burdened with the cost in the long run!!!!! If we as a society spent more time looking after our own families,friends, and neighbors, and less about what Joe Schmo is doing, a lot of our country’s problems would solve themselves!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In short, mind your own business, and keep your religion to yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
