Im gonna have to agree with Benevolent Heretic on this one. Why should the government have a say on what an individual's choice is? We have already forfeited many of our "choices" to the governement already.

Many who have the pro-life stance are religious and there is nothing wrong with that. But what happend to seperation of church and state?


Choices are great as long as they do not infringe on others right to choice. This all comes down to is a fetus a human being or is it just cells that at some point (birth maybe) it becomes a human with inalienable rights?

That there is the defining line between pro-choice or pro-life. I'm sure no one in this discussion would think that it is ok a month after birth to abort....everyone of us sees this as murder and the infringement on the inalienable rights of another....

Trubl, just apply your logic in your post above to a human that is 1 month old....does it make sense, so why apply it to one that is still in the womb?

This is nothing we can debate and as I said pro-choice sees a human in the womb as an "it" and a pro-life sees it as a human being.

The part that is very troubling to me from a few posters here are the ones that DO see it as a human being, but feel its life isn't worth the trouble to have if its mother feels that way or feels it too much of a burden on her....very troubling...

Does an ovum choose to get fertilized? Does it choose life? Does an embryo choose to implant? Are natural abortions and miscarriages the choice of an embryo rejecting life?

Its a matter of context. To say that someone is pro life is to say they are against choice, to say someone is pro choice is to say they are against life. This is just in the abortion argument.

You don't chose to die in a car accident, but if I shoot you that is a different story...same thing with abortion...another decides life or death for someone else.

Being "pro life" means you can't get the same effect if you use dead people as cannon fodder
it works best with live suckers

What does it actually mean to be pro-life?


A clinic is burning. You run inside, look around through the thick smoke and to the right you see a young boy sedated on a bed hooked up to some life support. To the left is a large flask containing a hundred fertilised eggs, ready to be implanted. "There you are!", you say as you grab the flask, run for the exit and finally emerge from the smoke, the building collapsing behind you.

Thats what it really means to be pro-life.
