Well, I call myself pro-choice, but I'm probably a nobody, so the title still works ;-)

I call myself pro-choice too. Added with "I'm not going to judge you for making a choice that is legal and have zip to do with me."

When a woman is in a situation where she requires an abortion, it is not really a "choice" for her.

Nobody "chooses" to have an abortion like they're "choosing" what to make for dinner or what brand of toothpaste to buy.

I think there are many people who are deeply troubled by abortion, and may even believe that it's wrong to define a point where live begins, but don't want to see women or doctors go to jail for making hard choices.

So I can't say I agree with that comment. It's a position I can understand.

Count me in the ranks of those troubled by mid- to late-term abortions (though not so much early-term ones). But, what you said.....

ggt - that statement has always bothered me too. It is up there with another one that goes like, "abortion is ok but should never be used in place of birth control," which strikes me as equally bizarre.

I'm pro-choice just as I'm an atheist, but both labels really don't describe my views and are just easily accessible labels.

I haven't been asked about abortion in person for a very, very long time, but the last time I recall being asked it went something like this, " yeah, I support women getting abortions, just like I support people getting root canals and plastic surgery. It's their body and a medical procedure."

I don't care what you call it, as long as we don't let the ignorant conservatives get our goverment into the forced-birth business.

I'm pro-choice and if I had gotten pregnant anytime before 28 I would have had an abortion and I'm not ashamed to say it. I've never been interested in being a teen or single mother with no money or the father of the child to help me raise it.

Right wing propagandists and their sympathizers are responsible for the language. Just like comparing liberals to communists every day on the radio and tv. Do it enough and people don't want to be associated with it.

I'm pro-choice but no, abortion should never be used as casual birth control: it's bad for the mother. & I used to say I would never have an abortion, because I always wanted children. Well, now I have them, & the cost, while slightly high, is something I do not want to pay yet again. So, yeah, if I had gotten pregnant before I got my tubes snipped, yes, I would have had to have one. & I would have hated every second of it. I think that supporting the right of someone who does something you either hate, or merely just don't understand is a lot more important than someone who could be said to be in it for themselves. Disinterested, ideological support doesn't change with personal circumstances. The more I think about it, the more I resent the tone of that comment, because I hate, REALLY HATE people putting words in my mouth!!

You can quote me as proudly pro choice. Here, twitter or FB. Count me in the minority that will say so.
