You mean the women who have them? What else about women do you hate, specifically?
Whatever you like about them, specifically.

I think even saying "pro-choice" or "pro-life" is in itself inaccurate, because most people aren't 100% in either direction. Consider:

A pure "pro-life" position would be that any killing of the egg/fetus/whatever after conception would be first degree murder no matter what, not only for the mother but also for any one who assisted them or illegally encouraged them to have it done.

A pure "pro-choice" position would mean that until the baby is born a mother could have it aborted simply by going to a medical clinic and having it done, like a flu shot. If it were possible to simply buy a pill from the pharmacy and somehow that would work, then that pill would be 100% legal.
most people fall in the middle of most of these things, except you get the crazies that rally for the hard left/hard right for any point of view... aka RFD.

Nah, they're trying to protect lives being destroyed because of the fanatical belief that an egg is equivalent to a full grown chicken.

The people that are really anti-life are the ones pushing the anti-abortion messages. They kill doctors, bomb clinics, and constantly push the message that the life of the fetus takes precedence over that of the mother. "Is she going to die in childbirth and an abortion is necessary to save her life? Let her die! It's god's will!"
Could HAVE, not could OF. What does 'could of' even mean?

+1000

And why is it always evangelical *Christians* who do this stupid shit?

You never see Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist pro-life protesters ... I wonder what that says about the non-Christian faiths? ;)

I'm pro choice, provided the people making that choice have taken a series of tests and are deemed competent, have a stable job, are psychologically stable, are physically and emotionally present, maintain and update parenting best practice skills etc.

The people who are opposed to pro-life should be anti-life not anti-pro-life because if you are not for pro-life but against anti-pro-life then you would be anti-anti-pro-life and if you were for anti-pro-life but not against pro-life then you would be pro-anti-pro-life and this is all way too confusing.

Showing the protestors above post is going to make them understand and end the conflict.

Which one is pro-life again?
The one that doesn't destroy the lives of actual living human beings in favor of a clump of proteins that can't survive on its own

I can never understand how somebody can say it is fine to kill a baby (or fetus if you prefer) 1 sec before it's born, but it's not fine to kill it 1 sec after it's born.

We kill animals all the time (you can get really gross pictures of dead animals as well), so it's clearly not "life" we "pro". I guess it's sentience then?

It's more a focus on certain aspects of "life". Simply put, for conservatives, abortion is a political calling card, one that conservative politicians use to their advantage. Like sheep they flock to it.

Even though I'm extremely pro-choice, I gotta say, reading that a fetus is merely a clump of cells is also incensing. When I saw a 3d ultrasound of my daughter as a 16 week old fetus moving around in my wife she didn't look like a clump of cells to me any more than she does today at 6 years old. People who suggest that this clearly living and developing human isn't alive should have their heads checked by a professional before they become the next Klebold/Harris.
