    Fair enough,... can you link to a specific post or thread that changed your views?

    I figured you actually had a point to your post. My bad.

    It wasn't a specific post or thread. It was a very gradual change.

    That's very odd,...

    At my age, I don't change my mind very often,... nor very easily,... But I can explain my change with no problem at all. Gradual or not.

    I'm reticent to associate myself with "pro-choice" movements or arguments as I generally do not agree with them. I still think the unborn are innocent humans and that abortion kills them. My problem is that enforcing a ban on abortion would be utterly unfeasible without draconian methods being employed against women.

    I would like to know if anyone reading this poll have ever changed or moderated their views on the legality of abortion,.... as a result of reading (or participating in) the 'abortion' threads.

    I'm not making the vote public,... your vote will not be seen by others.
    My views have changed significantly on abortion in that they are now far more refined then they were when I first came to DP.

    I've always been against abortion, however.

    Awesome! That's how I intend them to be.

    I have nothing further to add to them.
    So you just posted what you did because you felt like typing?

    No, I posted what I did... (in my response to your comments) to show you how completely aware of your views I am.
