I've never disagreed about when life begins.  There is a life that begins a conception, but it is not an entity that deserves equal rights as that of the host that carries it until sentience (which isn't developed enough until close to viability).  Before viability/sentience, the "host" has any and all say on whether or not the life remains within its body.

The vast majority of abortions performed are performed well before this point.  As for those rare incidents where a "late term" is performed, there is generally a medical reason behind it.

I was thinking most pro-choice ppl thought it's not a life at conception. So then you do consider it a life?

Life is a circle, there is no beginning.

Exactly this something can be life without being alive and afforded human rights.
