I think we need to get off our high horse and accept that the death of our species is necessary for the survival of planet earth.

How about this, I consider myself conservative and I am:
3.) anti-death penalty
5.) indifferent to what happens in someone's bedroom
6.) pro-drug legalization
What most "pro-choice" people don't get is that they are denying the choice for LIFE to a child, that's not very "pro-choice" in my book. Oh yeah, I'm a man and know that it is my right to speak on this.
To the person that used the "rape" argument:
In 2000, cases of rape or incest accounted for 1% of abortions. Another study, in 1998, revealed that in 1987-1988 women reported the following reasons for choosing an abortion:
* 25.5% Want to postpone childbearing
* 21.3% Cannot afford a baby
* 14.1% Has relationship problem or partner does not want pregnancy
* 12.2% Too young; parent(s) or other(s) object to pregnancy
* 10.8% Having a child will disrupt education or job
* 7.9% Want no (more) children
* 3.3% Risk to fetal health
* 2.8% Risk to maternal health
* 2.1% Other
So, out of 100%, only 2.8% (bold/italicized above) would I consider a somewhat legitimate reason for an abortion. The rest can be solved with adoption.
