    Pro-lifers and Pro-choicer Please Identify yourselves to the Gallup Poll

    Now its time to tie the two polls/threads together
    Pro-lifers poll
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/aborti...lf-please.html
    Pro-choicers poll
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/aborti...lf-please.html

    and the gallup poll
    Abortion | Gallup Historical Trends

    While this poll is very inclusive and simplistic its how the gallup poll is formatted

    How do you feel Abortion should be handled:
    LEGAL under ANY circumstances
    LEGAL under SOME circumstances
    ILLEGAL under ANY circumstance

    How do you feel Abortion should be handled:
    LEGAL under ANY circumstances
    LEGAL under SOME circumstances
    ILLEGAL under ANY circumstance
    My answer would be:

    LEGAL as currently legal, determined by the U.S. Supreme Court. (this means abortions are legal up to the point where the fetus can live outside the womb. In years past, that was determined to be 6 mos. I don't know the term length for that now. Fetuses can live outside the womb, with assistance, at less than 6 mos., now. Then there are exceptions for the mother's life or health, and I think due to the fetus being so deformed that it is determined by a dr it cannot live outside the womb, or something like that, even if it is past 6 mos. Although tests usually can detect that earlier.)

    I would not call that "legal under some circumstances." That's probably "legal under most circumstances"?

    I voted legal under some circumstance with the only circumstance being to save the life of the mother.

    Legal under any circumstance prior to the child's birth.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    That and a non-viable or dead child, who can indeed represent a health threat to the mother. If you're not saving a life, then you lose the justification for the restriction.

    Up to what point in the pregnancy?

    I said illegal under any circumstances. This is because abortion is murder. A baby doesn't become a person when it's born or at a certain point in its development, it is always a person. Therefore killing an unborn baby is the same as killing a baby that's three months old and cute and lovable.
    I also said it because I am a Christian, and believe it is completely immoral.

    Legal under any and all circumstances until the point of viability, then legal for reasons of mother's health and fetal viability.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
