I was going to post a question but after reading some of your posts we have militants on both sides of the debate here and I'm sure my question would have gotten blows from both.

My willingness to see the side of pro-life is in my defense of each woman's right to continue gestating and give birth if she so chooses. I also defend each woman's right to abort if that is the course of action she so chooses. When someone takes actions that seek to restrict her rights and choices insofar as they pertain to her body, health and life- I get my back up. NO ONE has the right to force a woman to continue gestating and give birth against her express will and consent since she is the ONLY one undergoing the unique set of both short and long term risks inherent in both gestation and childbirth as well as abortion.

I'm curious as to why you would start a thread to simply say you were scared away?

>>I've been on this board for about 7 years and have found there is usually a core group of people I highly respect from *both* sides of the debate. It is a tough topic and we are all pretty passionate about where we stand but I, for one, am always interested in hearing different points of view. A stance that cannot bear up to critical thought and challenge is a pretty weak one, if you ask me ;)<<

I haven't been here that long but I agree with what you are saying. If you allow your arguments and stances to be challenged it allows you to refine and hone them. I have had to rethink my stance on a couple issues and although I generally come back to the same place I stared (well maybe with a bit more gray areas) at least I know that what I feel is authentic and not just a knee jerk reaction.

>> BTW, if we are *that* bad, why do the majority of us keep coming back over the years?<<

It is a hot button, volatile topic. Posting here does carry a risk of a discussion becoming quite heated.


If you have personal questions you would like to address, or something of a nature you do not wish to debate, perhaps do so in the bottom folder, and so state you aren't looking to debate?


While anything on a message board can be responded to within the terms of TOS, in my experience most members respect a wish to share or ask something personal and keep it away from debate.


I've talked on my issues within and without debate, depending on what I shared, why, and if it was posted in response to debate, or in answer to an inquiry by someone who wishes to know. In the latter case, we should back off.
