The Democrats for Life have been the movers behind proposals for abortion-reducing policies both nationally (with the Pregnant Women Support Act) and in states. I haven't mentioned before that the national organization's website has a document, for which I took the main drafting role, detailing various policy proposals in the so-called 95-10 Initiative and some of the evidence supporting them. The document is from a while back (among other things it contains a contraception-policy element that has since been removed), and it's likely to be revised and updated. But it still contains (IMHO) helpful information on this policy approach that offers some possibilities for consensus.
