Is it possible to be both? I am pro-life. I think even in cases of rape, and diseased babies, it is killing of a human baby, and therefore, is wrong. However, we all make choices everyday, and a lot of them are wrong. I chose yesterday not to rob that bank, even though I am having $ problems, and today I chose to lie to my cousin about something that I shouldn't have. Some people choose to go rob that bank, kill that person, cheat on that spouse, but today, I choose not to...tomorrow I might choose to (but it's very unlikely,), however, you catch my drift.I think God gave us a right to choose to do wrong or right and we ourselves make that decision and we suffer the consequences of those right or wrong decisions, right? Now, I have to admit, I am stuck on if it should be legal to snuff out innocent lives, even if I think it's our right to do so. On one hand, I do not support the killing of babies, I support the right to choose, and I don't want women to needlessly die because of a botched back ally abortion, but that would also be a chance that that woman would be willing to take (just like she took a chance when she had sex and became pregnant). But then, what if she was raped, or something, some...most... feel that it is acceptable to abort, but why punish this baby for something the father did? Yes, I understand that you feel the mother would be punished for the nine months she is carrying, but she could give such a wonderful gift to some couple.....anyway, I am torn if it should be legal or not, I am on the fence. I am leaning towards, yes, it should be, but I just haven't sorted out how I feel about it. All this just to see if there was anyone else who was like me, or if anyone understood where I am coming from. I am very pro-life, but I still think a woman should be able to choose to do this, even if I think it is wrong, no matter what. It's still her choice. Does that make any sense to anybody? Just wondering...

I understand the dilema.

The first thing to understand is that being pro-choice is NOT equal to being pro-abortion.

"If I privately beat my child - it is wrong - however, based on RvW thinking, it is in the privacy of my own home, my own family and my own choice."


No.

I was addressing RvW, and why/what many find wrong with the rulling.

"To me, and many, many, MANY American it is the exact same."


Thank you for proving that you and allegedly many, many Americans are not bothering to think through what is being explained.

Doesn't prove any of of you are thinking critically and correctly.
