I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born.

Too be fair, so has everyone who is against it.

I'm very pro-life, but I hate to see the more simplistic arguments against abortion get torn apart on this board. I know from experience...

Abortion remains the only social issue on which I fall on the conservative side of the ledger.

Thank you.

Also, I'd like to point out that most people on the pro-choice side are NOT "for abortion". That's another gross misconception that I REALLY wish would stop.

Wow. Seriously?

Fetus Set To 'Testify' In Favor Of Ohio Anti-Abortion Bill

And on a related note, interestingly enough, too, I just saw a story on the news about how some conservative state lawmakers in Wyoming are objecting to a bill being proposed by one of the lawmakers there that would put even more restrictions on things related to abortion because, well, by those conservatives' logic, small government should actually mean just that: small government. In EVERYTHING.

How does a fetus testify?

It's gimmicky and sensationalistic. Everyone already knows that a fetus moves and has a heartbeat, everyone already knows that back-alley and self-induced abortions are dangerous. No one needs ultrasounds or gory photos of women's corpses to make the point. What's next, cuing ominous music while you testify, or dubbing screams over your audiovisual aids?

Apparently its testimony was a bust - no heartbeat heard.

Maybe it took the fifth?

Maybe it prefers an abortion over a life in such a state/country.

Let me ask you: how do you feel about abortions for people who have been raped or are medically in danger from their pregnancies?

Exactly.

It just smacks of total insensitivity all around to people who may have been through such things or considered such thing, and assumes things about the pro-choice side as well. It's a lame tactic.

I feel like the pro-choice side automatically asks this question right off the bat to someone who is pro-life. Because whatever their answer, if they say they would support abortion being legal in such an instance they get called hypocritical, and if they say no they get called crazy, or anything along that line.
