We're not.

We're pro-choice.

They are anti-choice.

Don't get it twisted.

I donít understand those who identify as Pro Life and oppose spending on feeding, housing and educating children.

Then again, I do not understand males and females who engage in unprotected sex despite their own lack of emotional stability/ maturity and inability to take financial responsibility for the outcome.

It's the talking points, sound bites and propaganda BS of language and only the dimmest of bulbs fall for it. The right wing has been using this garbage to manipulate the easily manipulated for decades.

Pretty much anything they wish with regards to their sexual life.

Everyone focusses on abortion, and kind of ignores what the Roe v Wade majority opinion actually did - find that there is in implicit right for individual autonomy - i.e., privacy - in the constitution, and that therefore abortion is a personal decision. But if you don't have blinders on, you can easily see that Roe v Wade has consequences far beyond abortion.

If SCOTUS does decide to overturn to Roe v Wade, then sooner or later, they will have to address this very huge issue. Because it WILL come up again. Americans are just too used to freedom in this area of life. That's why public opinion shifted decisively on gay people over the short span of 20 years.

All a man has to do is keep his semen from entering the uterus by using a condom. A woman has to go through a helluva lot more red tape to prevent unplanned pregnancy. Also, vasectomies are reversible.

Thereís the rub. Pro-lifers believe that a fetus is a real person with rights. They donít accept the premise that a fetus is just part of the womanís body.

If you can convince pro-lifers that a fetus is not actually a person, they wonít have any reason to oppose abortion anymore. Unfortunately, you will probably have difficulty, because *religion* is usually the basis for their belief that a fetus is a person.

I used to be pro-life myself, until I left religion. Then I realized that it was kind of silly to believe that a fetus was a person. Now Iím mostly pro-choice.

SAVE THE FETUS/SCREW THE CHILD

And they are too clueless to see now transparent this is. How about Trump fans making excuse for the separation of children from parents at the border?

Many of these "supposedly" pro-life people could care less about children after they leave the womb. They would rather mandate they are born and then later starve them to death.
