    So I do not believe in the notion that you can be morally opposed to abortion for the same reasons many pro-lifers are opposed to abortion and be pro-choice at the same time. Its like saying you are against child molestation but do not think it should be illegal or against rape but think it should be illegal when you say some bull **** like I'm pro-life but I am also pro-choice.
    I can certainly agree with you that abortion is essentially taking the life of a potential child, but you have to understand that some people don't see it that way. If they believed they were murdering a child they would likely have the same views as you.

    It all comes down to when you believe life "starts".

    I'm sure there are some people who don't even think about this though. They simply don't want to be pregnant anymore...

    Pro-life, with the exception of rape or incest, or of course threat to the life of the mother. I think the terms pro-life and pro-choice are the proper ones, since they are the self chosen terms for their respective movements. I believe it's correct to call people what they prefer to be called.

    I was Pro-Life up until about a year ago. Mainly on religious grounds.

    After I found out the ancient Israelites did not consider it a human until after the first three months, and did not have a soul until breaking out of the womb. I figured they know more about the nature of God than I do.

    I still don't support it as a form of birth control or late term abortion etc.

    Exactly! This is a major reason why I am having trouble with the religious aspect of being pro-life.

    Absolutely!
    And this "forcing" has been the bane of man's existence for 6,000 years.

    I'll never base my thinking on the activities or thoughts of those from antiquity. Nor do I think that they are any closer to God or know more of God's nature than I do(which is 0.0 or zero).

    I agree. The ancient peoples also thought epilepsy was demon possession.

    I figure those who talked directly to God, know more than me. I will default to the Bible and those who wrote it.

    Just saying.

    Anyway, this thread is not about why or why not I believe in God etc. So lets not go off topic.
