Pro-choice and always have been as long as I can remember., Actually this reminds me of a story lol

When I was a bit younger around 11 or 12 my family is Catholic so of course I was forced to do all these things I hated. I went to some kind of youth group thing once a week and CCD (i think that's how it is spelled?) when I was even younger than that. Well one day there was about 40 of us kids and some adults and we all went upstairs in this building near the church. They asked us how many of us were pro-life and how many were pro-choice. 99% of the kids and all the adults were pro-life and only me and like 3 other people were pro-choice. Then they showed us some video about abortion and showed us the sperm and egg and everything all the way from conception to the full term baby. Then they asked us how many of us were still pro-choice and I was the only one who raised my hand. And i still haven't put it down to this day. No amount of propoganda will make me change my stance.

pro choice for medical, and rape reasons. I think abortion laws should be in place to prevent 'abortions of convenience'. I also thing adoption needs an overhaul. Children need parents, parents looking for children, etc.

that argument always makes me wonder

why is it "ok" to have an abortion at 6 weeks but not at 12 weeks? Is it more of your baby at 12 weeks than it was 6 weeks earlier? Its the same fetus...

im not trying to be rude or anything im really curious for the rational behind that thought its never one ive been able to get my head around

I think it's because they say the heart doesn't start beating until like the 6th or 7th week but really from what i read it is usually the 4th or 5th. But whatever everyone is entitled to an opinion and i'm not ragging on anyone as i'm pro-choice too.

The fetus's heart begins to beat about 18 to 21 days after conception or at about 3 weeks, when most women who haven't planned a pregnancy don't know they are even pregnant. So it is even sooner than most people think.
I am pro-life and have always been and will remain.

I remember in an ethics class we had a discussion on shared morals and personal morals. Shared morals, for Americans anyhow, would be murder is wrong, rape is wrong, etc. Its something the majority of us agree with so much we hold it as either actual or unwritten law. Personal morals are just what they sound like- something many people may share but many may not. Such as views on the meaning of the Bible/Torah/Koran (sorry if I spelled that wrong), or breastfeeding vs. formula, etc.

To me, I personally could never have an abortion. If through IVF I was pregnant with a bunch of babies, I could not selectively reduce. I don't, for the most part, agree with abortion, except with rape, incest (which usually is rape), and life threatening conditions. But I do not believe the law should force my personal belief on anyone, because to me it is apparent it is not a shared moral.

Well, since there is no "other", I'd have to say I am legally pro-choice. But I couldn't ever do it - but I respect other women's right to do so.

I'm pro-life unless it was rape, incest or something so terrible was wrong with the baby that it would be in nothing but pain.

pro life..

a baby is a baby..no matter what week you are in..

if you didn't want to get pregnant then maybe you should have thought about it before you opened your legs ..

just my opinion..

and before it gets brought up.rape is not what that was intended for...

So you do not believe in allowing a family to ease their pain and suffering when their child is going to die? I'd assume then you're also against Do Not Recussicate orders?

"Going to die"? If the child is not dead, why kill him/her? Are you asking us to believe that the same parents that would be traumatized by the thought of their child dying would somehow be OK with killing their child?

...before anyone jumps on me about my question to Bonita, I'd like to point out that I do not believe that all Christians are pro-life or that all pro-lifers are Christian because that's not true at all. I've met atheists who were pro-life, and I honestly do not believe abortion is a religious issue so to speak. But I have heard Bonita profess her Christianity so I am just curious as to how she reconciles 2 opposing (i think) view points.

me personally I wouldnt be able to terminate a pregnancy. I just couldnt. IF they were to die I would let it happen naturally. I would want to know that I gave my child every single chance..but then again..that is just me.

and I do work in the nursing field and yes..I do agree that I do not like the dnr's..I hate them..

I can't answer for anyone else - but I can answer this concept. There is a difference between holding your own personal beliefs & believing you should enforce your personal beliefs on other people. As much as I would like to be able to whole heartedly say I am pro-life, I don't think ME being pro-life should effect YOU necessarily....so although I cannot imagine a single scenario where I would choose to abort, I cannot feel good trying to legislate my beliefs on other people that believe differently than I do. I don't see Christians out there trying to stop "convenience" divorces, shut down the porn industry, picketing in front of strip clubs, etc. If the Christian idea is a "Sin is a sin" then those things should at least be hitting the radar I would think. Yet no one expect Christians to be outraged about those things. Instead if you are a Christian that believes that you don't want to force others to conform to your Christian ideas when it comes to abortion, suddenly people are confused by that.

My political stances are based on the fact that I respect that my country is made up of people of all types of beliefs systems. I don't want someone else out there to be able to make me do things or prevent me from doing things based on their religion, so why should I feel comfortable taking a political stance that does that exact thing to others? Instead I believe that my true calling is to be true to MY belief system in MY life & to allow others to walk their own path whether I life the path they walk or not.
