Is anyone actually pro-abortion?

Pro-life means you think all babies deserve a chance at life. Pro-choice means it's woman's choice. But the opposite of pro-life is really pro-abortion or death.

  • That's why I tend not to use "Pro-Life" when I'm comparing the two... Really, should be Pro-Choice vs Anti-Choice. I'm very strongly pro-Choice, and yet I won't even use an IUD because I feel it's a form of abortion... More than anything, I'm Pro-Sex Education!

    I would think that even those who have had abortions are not usually PRO-Abortion. They weren't really pro-abortion at the time they had them... They were pro-choice and made the choice they needed to make (for whatever reason)...

  • I'm not "pro abortion" but I think that it's a decision every person needs to make from themselves. I'm not going to judge someone else - I don't want the government involved in anyone's personal life. It's not a decision I believe I would make personally, but I want to have that option legally.

  • I agree with Sabrina

  • "Really, should be Pro-Choice vs Anti-Choice"

    Very True!!! I believe it is up to each woman. Other people have no right to decide for someone else what is right or wrong. Also, it's usually republicans who are "pro-life" and they are also fiscally conservative. My question to these people are, if abortions became illegal who is going to take care of all of the additional unwanted babies that are born addicted to drugs and are born with diseases like HIV? Who's going to pay for their basic needs, food, shelter clothing? Their healthcare? Their education?

  • I had one when I was 20 and would never suggest that to anyone asking if they should, but then again, I am a firm believer in you have to do what is right for you and your situation. I also had a child at 17 that I put up for adoption 14 months later and know both sides of the issue of unplanned pregnancy. I don't think that we have the right to decide for someone what is right for them. It may not be what some believe is right according to their religious beliefs, but there too, we don't have the right to push our beliefs on to someone else.

  • Pro-abortion would mean that someone thinks abortion is a good thing and would plan to have one the situation arose and encourage others to do the same. Pro-choice is understanding that we cannot judge the situations of other people and can't force them to make decisions. Since it's impossible to take the choice away from women (even if abortion was illegal it would still happen, history has proven that) I will support the law that makes sure women have safe alternatives when they make the decision.

  • That's what I ask as well. EVERYONE is pro-choice, just most hope that someone chooses to save a life rather then end it. I don't think anyone is actually pro-abortion, but some see it as a means to an end.

    Answer by JazzlikeMraz at 2:20 PM on Sep. 5, 2010

  • I am Pro-Choice. I would not have an abortion unless it was to save my life. I have three children and to try to carry another that puts my life at risk is selfish. I would be risking taking a mother away from the other 3 children. But I will not force another woman to carry a child they do not want. She will find a way to end it and it maybe in some back alley where she could die. I am pro-choice with pro-life tendencies.

  • Being pro-choice means we want NO govt into our personal lives. The way it should be. Govt involved in forcing pregnancies only can lead to govt deciding how we give birth, how many kid we can/cannot have, etc. I would never have an abortion unless medically necessary b/c I think it is selfish of me to leave my son and husband without a mother and wife. My son needs a mother, my husband needs a wife, and most of all I want to be here for them.
