Why can't I choose both? I am personally pro-life. If I were a women, I would never have an abortion. The process is disgusting, I wouldn't be able to live with myself, etc. But can I tell someone else that they cannot have one when it cannot technically be called murder because of the disagreeing views on where life starts? I don't think that that is the role of the government. If every scientist in the world comes out and says that the developing baby is human at conception, thyen it is murder and shall be illegal. As far as I'm concerned, every single cell organism is nothing but a bacteria.
