    In the end, I find it particularly foolish to claim that pro-life isn't really pro-life because they are not pro-all-life. But it's clearly a term associated solely with the abortion issue; as is pro-choice. They refer to abortion, so it's rather silly to say one cannot say they're "pro-life" if they happen to support other means which may take life. It's clearly referring to abortion.
    I see what you are saying and it does make sense. But when someone who supports wars and the violence's I have earlier stated then talks about protecting the unborn and life it's a lie. They have chosen something they will protect. They see no value in life at all if they will take a life. It's as if they use this issue to wash the blood from their hands from all the other killing they support.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    Paranoid much?

    The number of countable efforts and measures put forward to increase equality are increasing - those that decrease it are decreasing.

    Some might be more willing to open their mouths and spew forth trash: but their numbers are diminishing. Look around you: How many men do you know who want a woman to work and vote?

    My ex boyfriend was pissed with me when I didn't vote - he found it inexcusable (2001 election). Contrast that to 1920's - how many men would be upset if a woman didn't vote? Some would - but not many. Most were just the opposite.

    We've come so far in this country I don't believe that there are many 'anti-feminists' really out there - even the ones who say they aren't feminist really are. LOL - the other day on TV some female commentator on a news show said "I'm not a feminist" . . . LOL: with her stilletos and ruby red lips - on national tv discussing politics. Yeah: feminism abounds there.

    Do not confuse the issue of abortion with women's rights.
    Do not confuse the issue of insurance companies covering birth control with women's rights.

    These things are not the same.

    Of course they are. But when a person claiming to care about life is willing to take it under some other circumstances that's wrong. You are for life or you aren't. IMO

    Exactly. The word war is just part of the political hyperpole. That said, I can see where women MIGHT see themselves being targeted in a negative way.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Black and white in this issue is subjective and we stand on different sides of the fence.

    Life as a person begins the moment that child is born prior to that it is a fetus. We have differing views on when life begins.

    I can agree with this and I think it's sensible. One of the main problems with the abortion debate is people want to view it in black and white. Some pro-life people want to view it from the lenses and perspective that abortion is murder done by the hands of evil women and taking that perspective. Some pro-choice people want to view the issue as evil anti-women pro-lifers wanting women to die in back alleys and are misogynists that hate women's rights. The black and white view doesn't really get anyone anywhere and an inability to look from another's perspective on both sides only hurts things in my opinion.
