28. Very well put -- and you said a lot. Concepts that could be folded into the mission statement

I respect the need and support the effort to create a "a pro-choice group because it will enable us to talk about strategies and solutions without having to deal with the aggravation."

And you nailed the concern:

"I do worry that creation of safe spaces can lead to the further marginalization of women and women's issues in the main forum."

The issues and the respect for women are vital for the success of Democrats and the progress of Progressives, which is why it is worth considering what atmosphere "in general" we are left with; when the level of intolerance forces all sorts of subsets of the community out of the Big Forums.
