Opinions Only Please

I am finding it interesting how many of us actually have very opposite stands on issues. We argue one way on one issue and another complete different in another. What I am looking for here is just a simple answer (YES or NO) to the following questions. I am not looking to debate. I am really curious to see if there is a pattern here on the issues. I would really like to see no debating in this thread.

Are you a pacifist?
Are you for capital punishment?
Are you for abortion?
Are you for abortion in some cases(rape, incest)?
Are you for gun control?


Thanks in advance for responding!

Peace

Pacifist: uncertain (the jury is still out on the "just war" theory in my mind)
Capital Punishment: No
Abortion: No
Abortion in cases of rape or incest: Yes
For Gun Control: More than what we have in the USA at the moment, so that might be a yes.

I meant to put that as the answer to both the abortion questions.

I think it's wrong and I would NEVER do it, but I don't think I have the right to judge someone else. I definitely think there needs to be more education/conselling before (and conselling after) abortions.
