Are you pro-choice or pro-life? *poll*

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 

Poll

Question: Are you pro-choice or pro-life? *poll*

Options:

Pro-choice

Pro-life


Only group members can vote in this poll.

Total Votes: 445

Everyone has their own opinion and every study is going to be swayed a certain way. The researchers WANT their viewpoints to be the "winning" side of the argument. Unbiased results are nearly impossible to find.

And yes, I deleted the rest of the initial post. The post is going in other directions and focusing on what websites are biased towards pro-life or pro-choice. That is not what this poll is about!

Sadly yes, but that doesn't mean I would I could. I'd be turned down even if I tried.


Quoting Momniscient:

So...

None.



That's usually the answer.




Quoting anonymous12308:

If I had the money, patience, and a big enough place I would adopt like crazy. I'd love to be a sergeant mother but due to health issues I don't qualify.






Quoting Lilcountrygrl86:

Pro CHOICE!

That isn't actually true.
There is a whole lot of data out there and reputable ways of compiling that data that leave critical thinkers a whole lot of room to find solid support for their theories and ideas.

Bias exists always but not in the way you are trying to portray. And a good solid understanding of the issue using various means and sources of information gives a real good dose of the reality of the situation.

Pro life websites are not the place for that. Pro life websites exist merely to reel in the emotional and the simple minded who want a quick fix to satisfy their own need to feel self righteous.

And I could've went totally pro-choice as well. That doesn't matter. NONE of that matters. It will not change anyones opinion what I post. If you're pro-life or pro-choice your opinion isn't going to be swayed by a few random "facts" that are Googled.

You can essentially hand-shape research study findings into whatever you wish and whatever side of the fence you're on. Unbiased isn't going to happen very easily.


Quoting Momniscient:

I understand what you are trying to say but you could have chosen something from a less obvious pro life site.



Quoting Anonymous:

Ugh, nevermind. The study has NOTHING to do with the poll.



Quoting Momniscient:

Pro choice.





And I don't really care what people's reasons are.





This is a silly study anyway. As soon as it said American babies killed by abortion I quit giving it any credence.

Ok. So why outlaw someone else's choices and up the chances that more and more children will be brought unwanted into the world without people willing or able to adopt them?

You are no more obligated to adopt someone else's child for your ideals than they are obligated to carry a pregnancy for yours.

Then you post what you wish in regards to facts. I'm uninterested in partaking in anymore of the conversation in regards to websites.
