    What would you consider this portion in regards to abortoin

    Say you have an individual who holds the following view.

    During the first trimester, abortion should be legal for any reason. However, after the first trimester it will be illegal save for instances where the woman's physical health is severely in danger OR in the case of rape and incest where an investigation provides reason to believe they were prevented from seeking the abortion earlier by the perpetrator (which essentially would require the occurence to be reported to the police or child services, and thus verifiable).

    Would you refer to this person "Pro-Life" or "Pro-Choice?

    I'd call it Pro Choice. (That's pretty much my personal position, by the way. But at 20 weeks.)

    I'm not sure since it depends how long after the first trimester they are willing to tolerate abortion, if it is 12 weeks and 1 day , then pro life, if at more than 17 weeks, then pro choice. Boundary at about 13/14 weeks judging from the pro lifers on this forum. Personally I think 25 weeks legal or up until the point that it is recognisably human until 25 weeks.

    I'm pro-choice and I'd call it pro-life, as I don't consider an embryo to be a human being. A fetus, however, I do.

    I'm pro-life and I think that most people who are pro-life would call this pro-choice. I also think that most people who are pro-choice would consider the position to be pro-life.

    The definition of pro-life is opposition to legalized abortion.So that person is pro-choice.Now that person may not be as rabid abortionist as say someone who thinks abortion should be legal all the way until the baby pops out, but that person is still pro-choice
    Pro-life | Define Pro-life at Dictionary.com
    opposed to legalized abortion; right-to-life.

    supporting or advocating legalized abortion
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: What would you consider this portion in regards to abortoin

    The position appears to be a compromise between pro-choice and pro-life, likely stemming from a capitulation by pro-choice into dropping the more hard-line pro-choice stance of total adherence to Roe and Webster.

    Thus it is neither pro-choice or pro-life, but merely movement between the two.

    So just so I understand you...you consider anyone who doesn't believe in complete illegalization of abortion to be pro-choice? So someone who believes it's okay only in cases of the mother's life is in danger, and that's it, would be "pro-choice" because they're open to legalized abortions in a specific fashion?
