I'll go with pro-choice; however. . .

I want that choice to be financially reliable on the person who makes that choice ~ NOT the tax-payer!

What a woman does with her own body is her own damn business. And I'm not a liberal, either. Politically, I'm an Independant, and idealogically I'm fairly conservative. But while there is no easy, pat answer to the abortion question, I just feel the mother has more rights in regards to how something as drastic as having a child would affect her life than does an unborn, unthinking, unrereasoning fetus.
That being said, I support Pro Choice with these caveats:
1) Women under 18 must have parental or legal guardian's permission.
2) 48-hour waiting time on receiving abortion procedure, after counseling with docs and counselors on options and effects.
3) Abortions to be performed in 1st trimester only, except of course where mother's life is endangered.

AGREE!!! That being said, those that choose not to abort and to carry a child to full-term, should not be dependent upon taxpayers!

I have not read through this entire thread but wanted to say, we are all here because our mothers chose life. We should always be greatful for that and wonder what the world would be if they did not. The choice should be made before a sexual encounter not after a missed period.

Unfortunately, what other people do is not my business. I don't care whether my neighbor puts a big dreidle in their front yard, or a red blow up homer simpson santa, or a kwanzaa... um... whatever it is people do for kwanzaa. Their beliefs is their business, whether those beliefs are religious or about abortion.

If I was pro-choice, that is my business. If I was pro-life... also my business. I don't need to push my beliefs on others. Who do these pro-lifers and pro-choicers think they are? (I'm talking about the ones that lead protests, bomb abortion clinics, etc) Keep it to yourself and go on with your life.

See I agree and disagree to a point. I say that it isn't about the woman's body. There is a life inside her and terminating that life shouldn't be put on the same level as having a tattoo removed or getting her hair cut. So it's not about the woman's body it stopped being about her body when she became pregnant intended or not. I think there are circumstances where terminating the pregnancy is the best option particularly when health is concerned. But I will admit to getting a little up in arms when someone talks about it being a woman's body no it's a living thing inside the woman so it's not her body it's their body.
