Hardly. You support WHATEVER choice a woman makes, whether it is to give birth or to abort.

In my opinion, no, you are not a hypocrite.

There are lots of things that I wouldn't do, that would be just fine for someone else, and vice versa.

No, you're not a hypocrite. You're pro-choice. :-)

You know, those who are anti-abortion often respond to people with your stance by saying, "Well why wouldn't you ever have an abortion? It's because you know abortion is WRONG!" I liken it to my stance on organ transplantation. I would never have one, and I wouldn't donate my organs, but I don't care if anyone else wants to have a transplant. What that means is, the procedure is wrong FOR ME, but just fine for other people.

Not at all hun. Many women feel the way you do. Being prochocie isn't about being willing to abort or thinking abortions are a good thing. All being prochoice means is you think that other women should be allowed to decided what is right for THEIR families and THEIR lives. I personally ahd an abortion when I was verying young and I hope to never have to do it again, but I am not goign to tell others that they cant, ya know???

~Nope, as this is my feelings too. I believe in allowing a woman the choice, but my choice is not to do it.

No, not at all. You are supporting a woman's choice. A lot of women who are PC would not themselves have an abortion.

Not at all. I support that other people should have the right to get breast implants but I would never get them. It's no different than that. Chances are that you *would* have an abortion if it were needed to save your life anyway.

Why would you assume that?

I know a couple of PC woemn who are very against abortions for themselves. I know of one who almost died during delivery b/c she refused to terminate a very, very risky pregnancy.

Not a hypocrite. You believe in CHOICE, and that would be your choice. Just like I feel that the health of the infant is an important factor, but I don't get tests done while pg because I know that if the baby has Down's I would still keep it. I do get an U/S so other things, like neural tube defects would show up and depending on the situation I may abort.

No, I don't think you are a hypocrite at all.
