    mad Pro-Life vs Anti-Choice

    Are conservatives anti-choice, or are we truly about preserving life? Which one is it? Let's get quibbling.

    The goal is absolutely to preserve life, but anti-choice policies are necessary to make that happen.

    Too wishy washy. It'd be better to say The goal is absolutely to preserve life, and pro-life policies are necessary to make it happen.

    Neither. I think the issue boils down to one side being pro-abortion rights, the other side being anti-abortion rights. To put it another way, one side("pro-choice") believes abortion is a right and should be legal, the other side("pro-life") feels abortion should not be a right and should not be legal. Euphemisms aside, the division boils down to whether abortion should be legal.

    I don't think that it is an anti-choice issue. I do not believe that a party that is determined to lessen government control would completely contradict their political belief unless they felt the issue was morally wrong.

    I agree with you're last statement, but the problem I have with calling it pro or anti abortion rights is it assumes that abortion is a right and the only issue is whether you're pro that right or not. Otherwise it would be just as correct to say it's "pro right to life" vs "anti right to life".

    I disagree. Birth takes precedent, as birth happens first. It's ludicrous to say that some angry female can make it about hostility toward unborn human babies.

    Too general. Lots of conservatives are pro-choice, just not many of the religious wingnuts.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I would call it anti-choice. When someone crusades desperately to limit your rights and options, that's as anti- as you can get.

    Too irrelevant. This thread isn't about conservatives being pro-choice.
