    I am not pro-choice, I am pro-abortion rights. However: I personally find abortion distasteful. I do not feel that is good enough to ban them. I also find guns distasteful, and what some people do with their freedom of speech, and religion I find very distasteful, and how people raise their kids, and so on and so on. I pretty much always with issues like this side with personal freedom, even when I do not personally like that freedom.

    Why is it "distasteful" to you?

    Thanks Gina, don't know where I got the idea I can see your location listed. But it doesn't negate my other comments. Tiller did indeed do partial birth abortion. He used the foreceps through the crown method.

    I personally see it as a compromise to create a situation whereby abortions are rarely needed, i.e. free distribution of birth control and sex education. You get fewer abortions, we get fewer teen pregnancies and std's, everyone wins.

    I think it's pretty self-evident. Pro-choice is not pro-abortion. We aren't looking to get women to abort, but if that is the choice they feel is best for them, then we support it. It's much better to prevent an unplanned pregnancy in the first place, hence the advocating for "rare".

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    You are welcome.

    Whichever procedure he performed, it was legal and that's the difference between him and Gosnell, cb.

    I want to hear your opinion instead of presupposing what you think, Gina. I'm weird like that.

    I guess I just don't understand why the feeling is there to have abortion be rare if it's just a simple procedure to get rid of some cells.
