    Well, yeah, that's why it's an analogy.

    An analogy that doesn't work apparently.

    Conservatives like you are the reason I'm not a democrat. I think this is a good rule of thumb for many things in life.

    Erm, why? The point is still valid, you can support something being a legal option without necessarily supporting the thing itself. I think people should be able to swear profusely or show nudity on T.V.

    I personally wouldn't necessarily watch shows that did so, but I still think it is their right to do so.

    I'm glad you took time out of your day to stop hating Muslims and start hating on pregnant woman with a very difficult choice to make.

    Congratulations, you're learning.

    If someone believes in the first amendment and therefor believes that people should be able to say racist things but the person doesn't like the idea of saying racist things does that make them a pro-racist person? I don't like abortions but in general I kind of think it's something that women should have as an option.

    Pro-abortion means you favor people having abortions I haven't met many people in favor of this ever. Pro choice means you support people being able to choose. That's what it means to me anyways.

    Maybe you believe in it because you think it shields you from judgment.

    Either you believe the child has a right to life or not. It is not necessary to personally suffer a particular crime/event for it to "infringe upon". From the perspective of the child, you are claiming to not care because it is not you personally.
