  • Yes, and I am. I am not for abortions at all, but I want a choice for myself, my daughters, and women all over. This is a personal choice. You can choose to NEVER have the procedure. I love my kids beyond words, but having a baby, in general, should never be mandatory. There are sooo many life-situations that an individual needs to make a choice with support from those in her life--not the government or church. That is my opinion.

  • I'm definitely pro-choice . . . I was pro-choice before I had children and I still am after having children.

  • Sure. Just because you chose to have your baby doesn't mean you would forbid another woman from having an abortion if she wanted to. So, that's prochoice.

  • Of course! Pro choice does not mean pro abortion to what some other pro lifers believe we are. It's so damn ridiculous for them to think that. You can be prolife for yourself and prochoice to other women.

  • I am pro-choice. I myself could never have an abortion and wouldn't encourage it if I have daughters, but the right to choose should be there for every woman. There's so many circumstances of why a woman would have one and I don't feel it's governments choice if a woman can or not.

  • Yes. I would never, ever have an abortion. I hate abortion. But I believe it is a woman's right to have an abortion, and my feelings about it should not make the decision for Jane Doe down the street whose feelings, circumstances, and beliefs are not identical to my own.

  • Just because you give birth doesn't mean you lose the capability to differentiate between personal choice issues and things that belong in the US Constitution.

  • Of course. I suspect you'll find that most women who are pro-choice would never get an abortion themselves. I would not. But then again I've only walked in my shoes and it is not my place to tell someone else what to do with their body. It's a matter of personal freedom.
