I am pro-life to a certain extent. I believe that women who are raped or have a chance of themselves or their babies dying during pregnancy or during labor should make the choice of aborting. However, I do not believe that a woman should be allowed to get an abortion just because they do not want to be mothers or it will mess up their figure.
I don't consider that pro-life and I don't consider that pro-choice. So what would I consider myself?
AND NO BASHING, THIS IS AN HONEST QUESTION. DON'T TELL ME WHAT I SHOULD OR SHOULDN'T BELIEVE. AND DON'T ARGUE WITH EACH OTHER ABOUT WHAT OTHERS SHOULD BELIEVE!
Your answers should help you understand where you stand. That is why some people call themselves anti-abortion (they don't think it is "right") but pro-choice because there simply are some situations in which it is the only reasonable option or because they aren't willing to risk the deaths of young women who pursue abortions illegally & dangerously. You don't actually have to embrace either label - pro-choice or pro-life, you can simply say, perhaps, that you wish abortions weren't a reality.

Ambivalent. May I ask why you think it is ok in some situations & not the others? Is it simply because you feel people should be forced to take responsibility for their actions? If so, are you willing to risk a child having a miserable life for it? Is it because you think abortion kills a child? If so how is it ok to kill a child because the "father" or sperm donor was a violent person who forced sperm upon a woman?
