I say that this scenario is much more likely than the reverse.

Yes, for reasons that haven't to do with morality.

Death Penalties do not deter or reduce crime and actually COST more to keep on the books.

And its not Pro-abortion. Its PRO-CHOICE, having the ability to have ALL avenues for a single mother-to-be to decide what is best for her and her unborn fetus. Wheter it be abortion, giving up the child for adoption, or choosing to raise the child herself.

"Can you be pro-abortion and against the death penalty?"

Well I don't know anyone who is pro-abortion, but one certainly can be pro-choice and anti-death penalty.

Yes.

If your disagreement with the death penalty is based on the moral belief that it is wrong to take a life, I assume that you would believe that an unborn foetus does not constitute a life.

You might also be opposed to the death penalty for other reasons, such the flaws in the justice system and the expense of keeping people on death row.

If your Pro-Choice then you are Pro-Abortion. Own up to it and stop hiding.

No, if you're pro-choice, you support having CHOICES available to you that government isn't involved in making that decision for you.

No amount of your pro-life rhetoric changes that.

I'm pro choice and hope that one day there will not be a need for women to have abortions and that every child conceived is born into a happy healthy home. However, I'm also a realist and understand that as of right now that's simply not possible and believe abortions should be safe and rare, but that I canno make that choice for another woman.

Ah, no quite frankly I would and have tried to persuade friends not to have an abortion because I am opposed to the idea but I also recognize that such a decision is ultimately not up to me to decide.

That is how one can be anti-abortion and pro-choice. It is really quite simple.

BS if Abortion is a choice then that means your "for" abortions "PRO-ABORTION". Lookup the definition of the adverb "PRO"

Why do abortionists hide from something they have no moral issue with?

If abortion does not bother you and you think it is not killing or murder then why do you hide from being "FOR" "IT"

Pro - short for professional
Pro - in favor of, vote for
PRO - public relations officer

Not hiding from anything. I certainly have an issue with those who use pro-life rhetoric.
