Again, the liberals take great liberty here in describing their position dishonestly so as to appear righteous. They call themselves "pro choice". That's pretty broad, isn't it? They sure aren't pro choice when the "choice" involves a poor mother using a voucher to send her kids to a different school, nor are they "pro choice" when a Christian baker wants to choose to be left out of gay wedding. God forbid we call this what it is.

On this issue you are either in favor of abortion rights, or not.

God forbid the liberals call it what it is. Because if we admit that it's about abortion and nothing more, it makes it harder for liberals to demonize the opposition. This way, they can say the opposition is anti-choice, waging war on women, blah, blah, blah.

If you are against abortion, don't have one. If you want to worship a plate of spaghetti and meatballs, go for it. If you want to take it in the ass by a bear named Raul, go for it. But... Who are you to tell someone else how to live their life.

Using that "logic", I can say "if you are against rape, than don't rape anyone, but who are you to tell anyne else what they can do with their reproductive body parts".

Same, same.

Sounds like good logic to me.

Maybe I am a libertarian at heart.

Funny, you didn't tell me, exactly, where I was wrong.

No one is anti-choice in a broad sense. No sane person is pro-coercion.

This issue isn't about "choice". Every single criminal law on our books, limits the "choices" we can make when someone else is hurt, and no one complains about that.

This issue, then, has nothing to do with "choice". It has everything to do with whether o rnot an unborn baby represents "someone else".

Pro-abortion folks like you won't frame it this way, because when framed this way (read: honestly), my side looks like the side of empathy and compassion. Which spits in the face of what much of liberalism is based on.

Sounds like you are pro birth.
What if I told you that most of Bridgeport CT's welfare recipients were pro life ? Would you still support their rights to have tons of babies and would you happily cut the welfare check to support all those babies?

So many pro lifers stop caring the minute the baby is born.

"Would you still support their rights to have tons of babies and would you happily cut the welfare check to support all those babies?"

Absolutely, and so would any other person with a minimum of empathy. It is a liberal myth, pure fiction, that conservatives would rather lower taxes even if it meant people starving to death. That's yet another example of liberal lying about what w eare saying, rather than responding to what we are actually saying. I like paying taxes to help people who are truly in need.

"So many pro lifers stop caring the minute the baby is born"

Says who? Just because Jenine Garafolo says that on MSNBC, doesn't make it true. Why do conservatives actually give more money to charity than liberals? Google a study called "Who Really Cares"?

You need to re-think from where you get your news.

"Not saying that you are one of them"

Sincerely glad you said that!
