IMO, if someone wants abortion illegal, even with exceptions, you are still PL. I get so annoyed when a PL person says "I think abortion should be allowed for rape, incest, maternal health" and someone comes back with "That makes you Pro Choice". It doesn't, Pro Choice (again IMO) means giving women all their choices, freedom to choice regardless of reason. If you are only giving her choices under special circumstances, how is that "Pro Choice"? I get that it isn't entirely Pro Life either, it is somewhere in the middle.
From the responses, it seems many people don't/can't separate their personal feelings from their political views. So, to be sure we are all "on the same page", lets keep the opinions to your political views on abortion. Do you feel the federal or state government should ban it? Place stricter regulations on it, that sort of thing. Ya now, how would YOU VOTE if the subject appeared on your ballot?
I simply find them like people who want the title of vegetarian but eat steak or chicken. Annoying.
Imo they are the worst type of "pro-life" person. They to be able to pick and choose morality as they see fit. I can understand (but not agree with) a person that is pro-life with no exceptions (except imminent maternal death). But if how the child was conceived matters to you you just want to be able to pass judgement.
I AM PRO LIFE with exception, I IDENTIFY as pro life AND HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT IT WON'T CHANGE MY MIND. ANYONE'S OPINION ABOUT HOW THEY WANT TO LABEL ME IS INCONSEQUENTIAL TO MY LIFE, IT DOESN'T CHANGE A FUCKING THING.
Those who say, no abortion, but we have exceptions, scare me. They claim its life, that abortion is murder, and yet, they feel qualified to say when murder should be allowed, which life is deserving of protection. I've had many people tell me that in my case (pregnant from rape) abortion would be ok. Those people, I have no respect for. Who are they to grant me permission to, in their opinion, kill? Not that I really care what they think, but I stay away from them. I don't need their permission, or their warped view of right and wrong and the value of life. I'm 100% pro choice, BTW.
