 Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan is urging anti-abortion activists to find common ground with supporters of abortion rights as a way to advance their agenda.

The 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee says in a speech to be delivered Thursday to the Susan B. Anthony List that those who oppose abortion need to work with people who support abortion rights. He says, "Our task isn't to purge our ranks. It's to grow them."

He notes that "labels can be misleading," pointing to former GOP Sen. Scott Brown, whose 2010 election nearly derailed President Barack Obama's health care law. Brown supports abortion rights.

Many opponents of abortion opposed the health care overhaul because it requires most employers to cover birth control free of charge. The law exempted churches and other houses of worship.
