That's just their way of saying "I'm pro-choice but I don't want to look like I support murder so I'll call myself pro-life so both sides will like me".

It probably means she doesn't like abortion,wouldn't get one,but doesn't think she has the right to choose for others.

Yeah....I just don't see how you can be anything but 100%.

I don't think someone is 100% pro life if they think abortion is ok in som Situations.

Pro life is just that pro life...

Also I don't think it counts as pro life if you are personally pro life and wouldn't abort but you are pro choice for the rest of the world...I still think that is pro choice ...its just your choice is to not abort.

But that is just my opinion dunno if I helped at all.

Maybe.  I didn't want to ask her as she is quite long winded and I needed to get off the phone.

She probably meant she doesn't support it unless the mother's life is in danger or the child has no chance of living outside the uterus.

Some pro life will say its only acceptable in horrible situations (like incest, or if it will kill the mom) maybe that's what she meant.
