    Is it unwise for me to ask which one you selected?
    I didn't select any of them because none of the four represent my views.

    Abortion is 100% wrong in every, and I do mean every, circumstance. I know liberals don't like moral absolutes, but it is the truth.

    It is the truth in your own eyes. Not to the eyes of someone who is pro-choice/pro-abortion.

    Not really. Almost 25% of the people who voted said that their views have at least slightly changed. That's probably around the average for issues as controversial as abortion.

    Ah crap, I saw the title and it mislead me so I didn't bother to read any of the posts but when I did I realised that this thread is about abortion and not why we are members here

    If you think abortion is murder - which pro-lifers do - then why would you not want to "regulate" murder?

    I've never really understood the assertion that personal views of abortion don't have to be expressed in one's political views of the same issue. Unless you are an anarchist or something.

    Because some people are able to realize that the issue is not black and white, and their OPINION - while completely valid to them - shouldn't be forced on everyone else. And that other adults should be allowed to decide their own views on the same issue, just as they have. They understand that while what they believe is right for them, it isn't necessarily right for everyone else.

    I changed from being for it early on in a pregnancy(1st trimester), to against it completely, unless in cases of rape or direct threat to a mothers life after reading abortion arguments.

    Re: Why are you here?

    If you, as a pro-lifer, consider abortion murder, then it IS black-and-white to you and you do not consider it a "personal view". To them it amounts to saying that pedophiles should have the right to sleep with children. There are a number of people who do think pedophilia is a right, but to most it is ridiculous because they see pedophilia as wrong, without any grey area. It is the same with abortion to a pro-lifer. There is no grey area, abortion is wrong, the same as murder and should be illegal. Just like most people, at this time anyway, think that sleeping with 12 year-old, whether or not they want to, is wrong and amounts to rape and should therefore be illegal.
