gotcha.

well in that sense i would say yes i'm "pro abortion"

but the way i was thinking of it was to be actually promoting abortion and saying its a good thing and such. as you said definitions may differ.

I don't give a rats ass if any woman has an abortion or does not have an abortion. However, I am adamant that all women have the right to make that choice for themselves.

Whereas if I was pro-abortion I would wish for every pregnant woman to have an abortion.

Therefore, I'm pro-choice. It's really not that difficult.

Of course, I am pro-marijuana, 'cause I do think everyone should smoke. The world would be so much more easygoing....

So when Newsweek refers to a politician as "pro-gun", they mean EVERYBODY should have a gun?

I am against abortion on demand, which let's face it is what we have in many Western European countries.

If that makes me 'pro-life' so be it.

Choice. A great book that deals with abortion is 'Ciderhouse Rules' by John Irving.

Surely, my definition may differ from yours, but the belief that abortion should be legalized. Just like pro-gun means little to no restrictions on firearms, just like pro-war is used to define those who support the war. Some may like the word pro-military better, but it doesn't make any sense to call anybody anti-military, at least I don't think it does.
To me pro-war means you like war. Now for some that may apply but I would never call everyone who supports this war pro-war.

Pro-gun people would love to arm every legal law-abiding citizen. Pro-gun people go around and talk about the joys of owning guns.

Pro-choice people do not want to give every legal law-abiding citizen an abortion. Pro-choice people never go around and talk about the joys of having an abortion.

It's ridiculous, people just get off this twisting of definitions.

pro-life

and no, I don't think pro-choicers are murderers

I don't believe abortion is a choice women should have the right to make
