    More diversion, Cephus? Do you have anything relevant to add to this thread?

    Asking the question that you asked will naturally bring up the opposite question. Thats the way debates go.

    It's not the way polls go. If you look at the top of this thread, you will see that there are only two ways to vote, so naturally, you comment on how you voted. See how it works?

    I didn't vote. You didn't have the correct answer in the poll options. As such my comments are going to reflect that. Just as anyone else's comments would.

    You participated incorrectly, therefore, your response is irrelevant. Why don't you toddle over to the polls and cast your vote?

    I will when there is a valid poll option. Just because you don't like the response does not mean that my response is irrelevant.

    Re: Pro-Life vs Anti-Choice

    I think the whole issue is just too politicized. All of these "conservatives" that allege they are pro-life are actually pro-whatever gets me a vote. I am pro-life, not anti-choice. I am all about personal freedom. However, I don't think a woman should the have the right to commit murder. I really believe abortion is murder. I don't think most of these politicians believe that. Rick Santorum is the first one to come along in a while that convinced me he is actually pro-life and not just pro-whatever gets me a vote. So, to answer the question. I believe that most conservatives are anti-choice because, well, its the opposite of what the liberals say.

    My not liking your response has nothing to do with your irrelevance. These are fair questions, and need to be addressed. You're a political correctness drone. From what I've seen so far, you are anywhere from "slightly liberal" to "slightly radical liberal".

    Or you comment on why those are not the only valid options, which they are not.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Me a "political correctness drone"? Now THAT is funny! Stop by the Immigration section of the DP and view my posts there for just one small example of how wrong you are. lol

    *wipes tears of laughter from face* hehe..me a political correctness drone

    As for my lean, read what it says in that little section under my name next to "lean". I'm an Independent. I adhere to no left or right ideaology. I make up my own mind on issues and anyone around these forums that know me can vouche for that.

    And no, your poll question is not a fair question in the context of the poll options you gave. A fair poll question at least has the correct answer in it if there is one, a wide range of possible things to choose from if there isn't. And in this case your question has a clear correct answer. And neither of the choices that you put up are it. BTW, if I was a "political correctness drone" then I would be calling anti-abortionists "pro-life" or "anti-choice" depending on which side of the aisle I am on.

    Now lets examine your words from your poll options to show you why both of them (and you) are wrong...

    Pro-Life and Anti-Choice.

    Pro ~ Meaning "for" something. or In favor of something.

    Anti ~ To be against something.

    Life ~ in basic terminology, any organic thing that is alive.

    Choice ~ The ability to choose between one thing or another thing or multiple things.

    By the above definitions this conclude that:

    Pro-Life ~ Being in favor of any organic thing that is alive.

    Anti-Choice ~ To be against the ability to choose between one thing or another thing or multiple things.

    Now obviously not all anti-abortionists are pro-life for the simple fact that there are some that want to keep the death penalty and/or are for a particular war where people get killed. They may also be quite happy at eating steak and are not vegetarians/vegans.

    On the flip side of that you have pro-choicers that are against abortion on a personal level but believe that politically a person should have a choice based upon thier own set of beliefs. Hence why they are called "pro-choicers" instead of "pro-abortion".

    This shows that the term "Pro-Life" does not conform to the standards of being against abortion.

    Now for Anti-Choice, why I have to explain this one is quite beyond belief but obviously it is needed for you.

    There isn't one single person on either the right side or the left side of this issue that believe's that no one should have a choice in anything and everything. There isn't one single anti-abortionist that believes that no one should not be able to make any type of choice what so ever. Yes they may wish to take the choice of having an abortion or not away from women but that does not mean that they want to take away peoples choices altogether. Which is exactly what "anti-choice" means.

    In conclusion your poll options are not correct nor valid answers to the question at hand because no one is truely "pro-life" or "anti-choice".

    Now you can continue with your partisan BS but in the end that's all that it is, BS. The correct terminology when refering to those that are against abortion is "anti-abortionist" not because of some polticial agenda or political correctness, but simply because of the definition of the words.
