What do you mean by both ways? The fact that people believe some abortions should be allowed?I'd say no, and this thread is proof of it. People can't even civilly discuss the topic of discussing abortion civilly. Its the reason I tend to avoid abortion threads (with a few notable exceptions).
Both sides have deeply held views that are not only in stark opposition to each other, but they both view the other side's position as deeply wrong. Naturally, there is little chance for productive debate in such a setting.
One thing I never understood is why abortion is called a religious topic. Yes, a vast majority of pro-lifers are religious, but its hardly a prerequisite. I've met several athiests/agnostics who are strongly pro-life. The view that killing a unborn child is wrong is hardly limited to those that believe in religion. There is nothing inherently religious about the argument that an unborn child is human and therefor deserves to have its life protected by the law just like the rest of us.
I think the reason the pro-life movement is largely made up of religious folks is that they are more comfortable speaking in moral absolutes. Many folks are convinced everything needs to be shades of grey. And sometimes things are, but sometimes they are not. I don't know if any polls back me up on this, but I believe most Americans are personally against abortion. Afterall the standard pro-choice candidate's position is to declare their personal dislike or opposition to abortion, but their desire to preserve choice. I've always wanted to ask them why they personally wouldn't choose abortion. If the answer is that they believe it ends a human life (which is what I suspect it is), then isn't the only correct stance then to oppose the ending of a innocent human life? For those that believe abortion is no big deal, no different than clipping your toenails or having a cyst removed or whatever, I can respect that. I disagree strongly, but its a logically consistent position. But those that try to have it both ways, I just don't get that.
